First Trip this year to Red

Recommended Posts

Had our annual trip to Red this last weekend. Never fails how great this lake can be to me after fishing Red for 34 years.
Started out hot on Friday and caught 76 fish in 5 hours of fishing. Saturday was a bit different they got tight lipped but we still caught a bunch of fish just had to work them a lot more and move more. By the end of the weekend we ended up with 130 to 135 Eyes. Not our best but was sure fun and nice to feel that thump again on the line. We fished from 7 to 14 ft. our best fishing was in the 7 ft. We caught a lot of small fish deeper. Caught a few from 8 to 10 inches. A lot of fish in the 14 to 15.5 , the next size we caught a lot of were 16.5 to 17 3/4. Many 18’s and a few 19 inch eyes caught but nothing over 19 .

We did manage to bring back 20 perch 10 to 11 inches this trip which was nice bonus fish. One giant crappie lost at the hole A few nice pike caught and some lines snapped off.

Our hot lures which seems we never use anything different on Red. Jigging Rap(perch color) or Red buckshot (glow), I did manage a few on glow Frostee Saturday night.

Also first time using the Kdrill, man that thing is nice. This was about the max ice I would use it on but sure nice and light. Anymore ice better with the gas auger but was cool to use and know what I want for going light weight.

Hoyt4 - I'm somewhat of a rookie when it comes to ice fishing with a Jigging Rap (I live in UT and visit Upper Red once a year).....are you baiting that Jigging Rap with anything or just jigging it plain?

I'll be there in one week.  I have plenty of the jigs, just want to make sure I am giving it the right presentation.

Thanks!

Rob

Using with a minnow head on bottom trebble hook. This perch colored one is my favorite and one I have best luck with but gold color works great also.
