Dan and I did a short trip to red Lake. At noon we launched out of Rogers and did the six mile trip to the center bar. We had a SE wind with a 1 foot chop and water temp.at 72 degrees.
The walleyes were scattered in 8 to 10 FOW and in their classic mid summer bite mode. We missed more fish than we caught and did bring home our limit of under slot fish from 15 to 17 inches.
Lure of choice was a spinner and crawler combo behind a BB.
The wind came up late afternoon and we encountered 3-4 foot wave on the trip back.

I'm going to be taking the family up next weekend. Do you think pulling cranks would work, or are spinners the way to go right now? Any advice appreciated as it will only be my third time on upper red and have not fished it this late in summer.......

Thanks!

With all the feed(Fry) in the lake at this time the bite can get tough. I would think small baits would work best. We used a slow roll spinner rigs with 1/2 of a crawler; slow trolled a .6 to .8 MPH
I would think leeches or small crank baits would also work well. You will have to do some experimenting to see what they want to eat.

Awesome thanks for the advice, will probably start with salmos or small glass shad raps before switching to spinners. Cranks are just easier with the kids if they will go on them......
