Question for Red Lake veterans

4 posts in this topic

Is there any of the seasoned perm shack renters that offers a service to those with their own wheel house to try to set you up on fish for a small fee? I just purchased my first wheel house and would be interested in this as I don't have much experience out on Red.

Most of the people who service the roads will plow for a fee. I generally bring my wheel house out myself early in the year when the snow is usually not a problem. I leave my house on the lake all winter and have never had a problem. Mine is not one of those fancy ones. Not sure if anyone else has had any theft or break-ins. Make sure you block it up as the heavier the snow gets on the ice, the more water you get coming out of the holes when you drill and you could freeze in. I have a 4-wheel drive truck with chains and can usually move my house around when I need to. By the end of the season I usually need some help plowing me out. I go out of Hillman's and can always find someone to help me. Bring a small portable with you and you can venture off and use your wheel house as a base. Night fishing on Red can be great. Good luck and welcome!

I could E-mail some GPS coordinates. But I almost wouldn't recommend setting a permanent up to them. I've fished both early Jan.& late March for a little while now and found a couple of spots, however I rarely have seen similar results the next time around. Take them for what they're worth though, it changes, I've caught crappies 7,5,& 3... miles out in March (for example). I think word of mouth's your best bet? If interested shoot me an E-mail.

I know if you go out of Hillmans one of the plow drivers will always try to help you out, its part of the road fee and road pass you keep on your dash. With three to four of us on the lake you can normaly find somebody to help, just don't try to stop them when they are working on the road. It takes a long time to build up that head of steam and once you get going you are pretty much blind.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
