Fished Upper Red, 4-hours on Monday (12/26), all day Tues and Weds, with rattle reels Weds Nite thru Thursday Morning.  My Buddy and I caught nearly 40 Walleye.  the two smallest were in the 14" Range, the largest 12 in the 21" range; the rest were right in that 16" range.

The first day Flying Red Jigs, and Buckshot Jigs were working great.  The bite was very aggressive.  A cold front came in and the fish would come in.  But they were timid of the big presentations.  We down sized to small bubble gum jigs and the catch improved.  Dead Sticks and Rattles Reels were getting the best action during the unstable weather.


Fished out of JR's Corner in 15 FOW, moved to 14 FOW with very good luck.  We utilized Ryan's Red Lake Rentals; Ryan Klein is the best outfitter by far on Upper Red,...

Got back out on Red again Sunday morning. I should have said in yesterday's post that when we moved into the shallower water, we also moved way away from people. Did that again this morning. In 3 hours, we had 5 man limit of fish. We were very choosy, because it was just the two of us. We ended up keeping 5 nice plump 17's. The ticket seemed to be smaller minnows on a deadstick.

Got out on Red Saturday morning 1/16/2016. Set up in 15-16 feet of water. The fish were sluggish, or scared of the noise. Cars driving all over the place. Picked up a fish here and there, but nothing to write home about. In the afternoon, we moved into 11-12 feet of water, the fish turned on for the evening bite. Between the two of us, we caught 18 fish in the shallower water. Biggest was 22", smallest was 11". We did not keep any because we will be out again tomorrow morning looking for a limit then.

Hi everyone, hope the ice is good to all and all are safe. Going to be making a trip up here in mid-May and was wondering what the best place to put in is. I've never fished here before so I'm green as grass with the lake and area. Thanks for your help and good luck.

3 of us hit Red Lake Saturday. We went out of Roger's, in the past I have had good luck with this resort, this year quite the cluster. Maybe the cluster is because they had 200 plus cars and trucks trying to launch there and they didn't have accommodations for that many vehicles I am not sure of, but it was a mess. They could have used another person or 3 working there too.

Anyhow, we went out with a 4 wheeler and portable, headed 3 miles NE, we wanted to get away from the crowds. Fist spot we hit was a rock pile, we were all alone for maybe an hour. Then 2 other groups showed up, then a few more, pretty soon there was 8 groups huddled around this rock pile. We packed up and moved. Head about 1 mile south again into 12' of water. We set up. Caught a fish here and there. Then about 3:30 things turned on. Didn't matter, we caught fish jigging with a head, and on dead sticks. Best colors were of course Glow Red. Between the 3 of us we caught maybe 30 fish with the biggest going 22", and that one went back too. Kept a 3 man limit of 9 fish.

There were people driving on the lake, I was surprised. There were both small cars and larger ones too. I even seen two 1/2 ton 4 door trucks on the ice, not sure what they were thinking. I'll stick to my 4 wheeler.

well first time out fishing and we drove a explorer on the ice stayed on the road out of jrs went west , i would strongly recomend not driving out, it is not safe every place and we stayed only on other truck tracks, there were spots that looked wet and and lots of cracks along and in the road, but we went slowly and others did too, weaving around anything that looked sketchy or to cracky or slush but we got two and lost three in the hole all looked 17 inches were in 13 ft also the cost is 10 bucks to get off at jrs a little steep but what can you do .i did measure 12 inches ice exactly and 10 inches . i just dont think people should be driving willy nilly out there yet if somebody goes in it will be because not enough ice or to close to a crack and the whole chunk around your vehicle will go because thin ice close to cracks just cant support as much as later in the year .but any way fishing was ok but not great , well lucky for the big one .50 /50 jigging and dead stick bobber minnow .hope this helps you .

I had some friends on the lake this past weekend and they found 10" of ice and lots of fish. I am still waiting for drivable ice so I can take my truck and Ice Castle out.
