A picture is worth a thousand words. Red Lake without ice.Took a chance and drove up to Red Lake this morning. I won't be able to get out fishing for a couple of weeks, so it was today or two weeks from now. I got up there about 9:00am and set out a slip sinker rig with Berkley Gulp Trout Dough in Rainbow Candy. Set up my 7' Ugly Stik with silver Panther Martin and away I went. Well, seems the trout liked Power Bait this morning.
The little guy on the bottom liked the Rainbow Candy. The other two liked the old stand by Orange Pulp flavor. The one on top is 13", middle 14" and bottom is 11". Guess who's having trout for dinner tonight? OK, enough bragging. I threw out a bunch of lures and they didn't produce anything. Even Kastmasters in gold & silver, which usually work in this lake, bombed. But as you can see, the day was not wasted. Note the forked tail on the one on top. It's not cut, it looks like it grew that way. Odd.
Couple of scenery shots, left and right of where I was fishing. That's it for today. Till next time, "Yeh, Red Lake is ice free".
