In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies.
So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great.
I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river
(Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.)
That would explain some of the backwoods people

"Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "
Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my

I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day. I've only ice fished it twice, so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat. It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.

You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.
Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years. Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
