Heading up to Red for our groups annual trip and staying with Bear Paw this time. Just wondering if anyone has been up to Red lately, haven't seen any reports recently. I haven't fished Red this late in the year, so I am curious on how the bite has been as of late? What has been working the best, deadstick or jigging? Any color out producing another? Hoping to catch a few while we are up there. Excited to try Bear Paw for the first time. Thanks.

3 guys fished from Thursday 5pm to Sat noon. Got 19, missed/lost just as many. Odd bite. Caught nothing Thursday until 7:30 and caught 3-4 before quitting around midnight. Nothing overnight and through prime morning hours on Friday. About 9:30am Friday fishing picked up and we caught fish throughout the day. Up to 18 by 4PM, then nothing until 10:30am Saturday, then pick up a nice 17.5 to end it. Most fish were 14-17 inches with a nice 18.5. Friday night and until 10:30 Saturday we caught the fish jigging, then dead stick after that on a green demon and fathead. All fish we cleaned were males. No perch or Pike. Went out of the south and went 10.5 miles to the north shore in 12-13ft of water. Heard it was slow, but call the trip a success. Note to self: A Jamison nightcap (good idea), a second (is dicey at best), a 3rd is just plain STUPID....

Well that was a rough trip. Got up there around noon on Friday, we caught the first fish around 5:30 or so nice 17 inch walter. Didn't catch another all weekend a couple misses. But we didn't mark anything on the flashers all weekend. We were setup in 13 fow about 5 miles out. Lots of houses out in the 2 mile area with a bunch out further than we were also. Might have to change our annual trip from Red to LOW starting next year.

Wouldn't plan on LOW being much better. Unless you like 8 inch saugers.

Was up there Thursday morning to Sunday morning, 3 of us, the 4th guy coming Friday morning. Set up 1 mile out of West Wind, 11 FOW, set up there for 2 days, ended up with 16 walleyes and 2 perch. Dead stick and rattle lines seemed to work better than jigging. Thought we would try something new on saturday, planning for future trips, went 2.5 miles west from Hillman's. In 13 FOW, caught 12 more walleyes and 1 perch, with 20.5 being biggest walleye. Noticed here the walleyes would only bite on jigging. Boondocking is my advice, getting away from the roads.

Not sure why you brought up LOTW on a Red lake subject , but you started it , so I will follow up here . Fished Saturday on LOTW and had a great bite for the two of us . Yes there were a few small Sauger and also Walleye , but we caught many nice walleye up to 24" , with a 22" also ,and also some great Sauger . Quit at dark with our limits of walleye , most of which were 16 or 17 inches , and two Sauger short of our limits ,all Sauger kept were over 14" . . Just wanted to say also that the smaller fish were around 12". We ate up 6 walleye that nite , and on our way home stopped at Red yesterday a.m at about 9:00 . Got to a area all by our selves on a great inside break at about 8' of water and we caught 6 walleye in a very short time to get back up to our possession limits , plus one bonus 13" Crappie , we left at about 1:30 .All in all it was a fun weekend on the ice between the two factories. . Small jigs and chubs on both lakes worked well , a few came on small plain pink hooks , again on both lakes .. can't stress how important it is to get away from roads , and get yourself on a good corner , either inside or outside , some days it's inside , some days it's outside , I do know that , but not sure why , let the fish tell you ...

Fished Friday night 8pm- Sunday morning 8am. Did great. Caught 27 walleyes from 14.25-19.5". They bit at all hours. Lots of misses as well. All but 4 came on the rattle reels. Bigger minnows were better. I was 9 ft only 1/2 mile off shore. Wish I could make it up again before the season closes but probably won't happen.
