Backwater Eddy --on TV this weekend

Recommended Posts

If you get a chance, watch "Fishing the Midwest", and see Ed in his home waters, doing what he does best!

I had the chance to fish with Ed last year, just a couple days after the show was taped, and we had a blast! Both Leah and I caught our biggest channel cats ever, and I personally learned alot.

I know Fox sports net north, has the show on at 1:30pm saturday. As well as several other stations at different times, and some on sunday.

Check it out!!

Couldn't see it because Time Warner has chosen not to give it's customers FSN. But that will change today when I get my new dish. Congrat's ED, wish i could have seen it.

I caught part of the show yesterday. Never been on the Red but it looked pretty inviting.

Eddy,

Looking forward to fishing with you at one of the Cat gatherings in the near future. Sorry you couldn't make the one on the Minnesota last year. Congrats on the TV coverage. I didn't see any sumo piggies though......but I'm sure you're saving your best spots for paying clients. That's the excuse Fishhead gives me when we can't find the Flats on the 'Sota. Either that or he tells me the frogs all escaped.

------------------
I fish.....Therefore I grovel.

Here....Fisheeeeeeee!!

Great show and good tips, Ed! Looks like frogs are key for even some "rough" fish! wink.gif

Sounds like Ed's been really busting his hump lately. He's busy, busy, busy. So... don't take offense to his lack of response, he'll be back soon enough.
I suppose it's tough for him too, now that he's a star. I would imagine GQ, People, Playboy, and other geltlemen's magazines are after him like crazy. I suppose chicks are calling like crazy now that he's famous too. I can only imagine...

    • That's interesting. I would believe fish gorge themselves then go a day or two without eating.  They probably don't eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner like I do!
    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
    • As Leech said, I would contact Johnny P with Red Lake Remotes. He used to post a lot on this site and seemed to know the lake like the back of his hand. He started a few years ago with just portable houses in order to go "remote" but now has sleeper houses.  
    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.
    • May be we can all chip in a buy you some. You can get qty 60 rings for $19.99 on-line!  😁   Bulk Canning Bands - Regular Mouth SKU: 1213830 In Stock  $19.99 Log in to add to your wishlist! BENEFITS OF BUYING CANNING BANDS IN BULK Never run short on canning bands again! Buy in bulk, save money and have plenty of bands on hand when you need them.

    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.
