upper red lake ——-lake and fishing report

mother nature let us know who was in charge last week first the snow then the cold the cold is good ,making more ice and freezing up those slush spots the fishing was poor the first days of cold and snow.like always, once the temps stabilize a little the fishing picks up, by this coming week-end most of alpines fish houses will be on the big red lake. so far my fishermen have had real good luck with walleyes and a few northern. no wheel traffic is recommended as of now, that will change soon—– remember be safe think real hard before you head out, Jerome Alpine Rentals

Red lake ice conditions

we are making ice. 3-5inches more and less in spots had some guys out about 500 yds. fishing was poor at best , which is usually the case after a wind and then freeze up.if you insist on trying to go out before more ice please be careful and check ice every few yds. good luck Jerome Alpine fish house rentals

Upper Red Lake Fishing Report by Alpine Sleeper House Rentals

Upper Red Lake area fishing report and lake conditions. We are able to get  across the pressure ridge on one of the only roads left. My guests are doing very well for the 1st of February. The ice is to the point of using the auger extension now.  Since the last big snow fall the lake conditions have changed. Most travel is limited to roads. If you want to go ba-haing at fast speed across the lake beware of ice chucks which like to punch holes in oil pans.  Fishing is very consistent in spite of cold weather with all catching numbers of fish. It is good to see a lot of happy fishermen/gals.  A plain hook and a small jigging spoon still seems to be the ticket. They have been pulling in walleyes, northern, perch & a few crappie here on Red Lake.   Alpine Fishing House Rentals.  redlakemnicefishing.com       Jerome        For reservations call 218-647-8379

 

Upper Red Lake report by Alpine Fish House Rentals

Traffic on the big Upper Red Lake has slowed after the holidays. Fishing in 12′ seens to be good for most with everyone catching fish. Some more than others. The rush to center bar seems to be over with. Which happens every year after a week of heavy fishing pressure. You can still drive anywhere on the lake with ice 19 to 21 inches thick. There is now a pressure ridge that has developed in the last few days that you should watch for. Rainbow & fatheads seems to be the ticket through out the day & shiners good in the evening. With the soft bite on some days jigging with a minnow head works fine.
