Night bite?

Recommended Posts

Milkdud

I have not ice fished Upper Red since the walleyes have become legal so this may be a dumb question but is there a night bite for walleyes on this lake? I know crappies will bite at night but wasn't sure if the walleyes will hit at night. Any information would be great.

If you want to sleep don't put the rattle reels down at night. My girl and I were up over valentines and has a reel going off atleast every 25 minutes. All walleyes except for one lone 14inch crappie.

I can think of worse reasons to be woke up. Fish on.

The last time I was on URL we were in about 10' of water the first night and the walleyes bit all night. The next night we were in 13.5' and barely had a bite.

We were just up for the weekend and spent two night. Didn't catch a fish from 7pm to 6:30am. Once the sun went down nothin until about 1/2 hour before sunrise. We had 8 rattle reels down the whole time. Lively minnows, lines set at the depth as during the day when we caught fish. Once that sun came up though, fish on!!

Always had good luck at night on walleyes. Seems about every hour or so you'll get some action.Reminds me of an old girl friend. She told me it was either her or fishing. I do kinda miss her smirk.gif

A week ago we were out about 6 miles and didn't get a lousy bite all night. Guess we shoulda been shallow. We sure had good action during the day though.

We were out about 6 miles and the guys that stayed in the permanent had great walleye action all night long. In fact monday night they didnt get any sleep. The 3 crappies we got monday also came between 9pm and 11pm.

I was up last Saturday night. The fish bit well until about 9:30 or 10:00 PM and then completely shut down until 6:15 the next morning. Solid action except during those hours. We were in 13 feet.

Was up there last weekend and really didn't catch any walleyes from 10pm til 5 am. I did however catch a crappie and a perch during the middle of the night.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
