Spent 4 days with Bearpaw Guides in mid-February.  Best fishing was the late afternoon bite.  Slow overnight, with a brief flurry in the morning.

Went out searching for deeper water during the day, found some walleyes near the north shore 8-ish miles out - slightly bigger fish than what we caught in the shack near Washish - most of our 'overs' came from there.

Ended up with our 20 walleyes and a nice bonus perch.

I want to thank Steve for putting us on the fish.

We took our annual trip up to jrs on red lake a little early this year we took our 4 wheeler out but by the next day they were letting trucks out I believe jr said he was going to let single axle shacks out with half tons today anyways we caught around 40 walleye most in that 15 to 18 inch range real nice fat ones we threw back anything under 15 and over 20 and ate out 3 man limit Tuesday and brought home a 3 man limit Wednesday plus about 6 bonus perch,if your looking to get out on some good fishing right now is the time! Most fish came on small treble hooks on a dead stick or rattle reel but they were also hammering the new glo shot spoon from northland tackle that you snap a glow stick into my favorite was anything with glow red good luck guys and stay safe

Got out on Red yesterday, went out of Beacon Harbor.  Been hearing people saying catching fish all day long so we had to try it.  We caught fish, but had to work hard and move around a bit for a 2 man limit of some nice 16" fish.  We kept away from the traffic and stayed in 9-10 feet of water.  Anything that glowed red seemed to be the ticket.

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.
