Red Shirt Lake continued.
« on: Feb 12, 2018, 10:03 PM »
Following a thread from Jan. 2017 which raised my interest.  It appears some anglers have fished Red Shirt and I would be heading back there to stock up on some pike.  My question is this, is there room to park the truck and sled trailer at the end of the road prior to the trail head?  Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I wouldnít waste your time with redshirt if your looking to ďstock upĒ on pike.  That Lake has been hammered pretty good and everyone I talked to that goes out there said they only catch maybe 2 or 3 hammerhandles in a day.  If I were you Iíd head out to figure 8 or one of the lakes in that area.  Be careful though I guess the trail is real ruff.  Also the winter parking starts around mile 2.5 of Nancy Lake pkwy, from there itís roughly 4.5-5 miles to the redshirt trailhead, and from there itís another 3 miles to the north end of the lake.  Pm me if you are looking for other options.

I wonder why redshirt is not that good for ice fishing.  I've fished that a lot in the summer time and we usually do really good.  Last June my son and I got 40 in one day.  And most were small hammerhandles, but occasionally you catch one that goes 24"-36".

Yeah I donít know either itís kind of weird.  Maybe they go out deeper to chase bait or something.   I think what Charlie needs to do is man up and go chase some real fish😀
