July is here but that doesn't mean the fish are all gone. With the cooler summer temps we've been seeing, the bite is still very good. The water temperatures warm and cool very fast on Red Lake due to our water depth and wind conditions. So far this year they are relatively low which is keeping those fish in the shallow water. Fishing the breakline in 4 to 7 ft of water is still best. The East and North shores are providing the best action from the reports we hear. The wind is a big factor most days when deciding which direction to go. It seems like we've had more wind this year than normal but most anglers aren't letting it stop them from getting on the water. This is also the time of year that you can catch fish anyway you like. Jig and a minnow, trolling spinners with a leech or crawler and pulling crankbaits will all get you fish. It mostly depends on what you like to do. Hammered gold, white bloodline and chartreuse are great colors and work the best for spinners. Anything UV or gold works good for cranks. With July here it's the best chance for nice weather. Bring the family on up for a weekend of camping and enjoy the outdoors. Have fun!
