Fishing Report 2-18

Recommended Posts

Wookiee

Me and a buddy(Red Lake Virgin) arrived at Hillman's on Sunday at quarter to 1, picked up the bait and a road pass. I hopped back in the truck and made the phone call to Kelly P and he said Jonny P would meet us on the lake and show us the way to our house. So we met up with Jonny P out on the lake and he took us over to the house. It was very nice to meet you Jonny P. He gave us some pointers and left us to get fishing because we would only be in the house for a day.

The first fish(walleye)16 1/2 inches came about half an hour later on a glow white ratso and crappie minnow into the bucket it went. The next fish was 5 minutes later as I was helping my friend get his stuff set up. The 18 inch walleye almost took my set up down the hole with it. blush.gif

Then the wind proceeded to do a 180 and the fish shut their mouths til about 8:30 when a 10 inch walleye said hello. Then off the bite went til about 11:30 when a 13 and a 1/2 came up and went back down. Then nothing until the sun the just barely started peeking. Then the crappies started their assault on us 3 in the bucket 1 lost at the top of the hole by me friggle, fraggle, foul filth. My friend's eyes popped out of his head when he saw that first crappie come out of the hole just like mine do every time I see one come up. Then the walleyes came and we limited out with a 16 1/2(previous day), 16 1/4, 15 1/2, and a 15. We also had 2 18's in that run. Then the crappies came back again 2 more in the bucket and 1 more lost at the top of the hole by me again double filth! Then another walleye attack caught a 14 3/4, a 15, a 17, and a 19 inch walleye between 9:00 and 10:30 along with a 10 inch perch that went into the bucket as well. The last fish(walleye) 18 inch was caught at 10:45 when Patsy came to kick us out grin.gif. It was nice to meet her too. The final score was us 9(5 crappies, 4 walleyes, 1 perch) to 2 (crappies) crazy.gif. I was telling Patsy about losing the 2 crappies at the top of the hole and she asked why we didn't use the ice scoop we had to try to help prevent that from happening? crazy.gif Double Doh! It was a great time and I highly recommend renting from Kelly, Patsy, and Jon to anyone that wants to catch some fish on Upper Red. It was my first time using their service and definitely won't be the last you can expect to hear from me in October.

On the way off the lake we stopped what seemed like every 10 yards to pick up someone else's trash mad.gif but I just try to do my part to help protect the resource in what ever way I can. That was my 3rd trip up this year and 3rd time overall on the lake and probably my last this year but we'll see what happens grin.gif

Almost all the rest of the fish were caught on size 4 demons and size 2 demon jigging spoons. Colors were glow with pink tip, glow ith orange tip and mega glow red(demon)and glow with pink tip on the spoons. 13 FOW.

great report toomuchfun. now here's mine.

We (4 guys) got up to the lake about noon on friday and drilled out all of the holes in our houses that were already on the lake from last time. Once we started fishing we had about 20 crappies in the first half hour of fishing. They must have been waiting for us under the house. We made the mistake of catching some crappies outside though where everybody could see us. After catching a few there were a couple groups of guys that seen us and started drilling holes fairly close to us. Once they got set up though the bite had pretty much died and we went inside the houses and watched them sit outside and catch nothing. The bite really slowed down after that hot action. But we did end up coming home with our limits of crappies and walleye and a few perch.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
