I believe there is a boat landing SE of Hastings about 4 miles on Ravena Trail that is referred to as DuShane's but I think the sign at the landing calls it LoveJoy landing or something like that. I have been there a couple of times and caught many bluegills and limited success on crappies (other people were doing good on crappies).

THere was good fishing a few weeks ago... alot has been taken out of there already. Way to many people hit that spot, way to easy to get to.

I live in hastings but have never been to "dushane" is this the truedale slough? There is a DNR boat ramp there on to the vermillion river off of Ravenna trail at the slough. Other than that, not sure of any water big enough to hold fish except the river. Any info would be appriciated as my wife has limited ability to walk far and we like to pan fish.

most people fish just to the left of the public access. very shallow, fish very spooky. every where else is a pretty good walk from that parking lot.

Has anybody fished DuShane's lately. I'm think about trying it again this weekend and was wondering what the bite was like lately.

I was there Sunday (27th) with a few friends. We didn't pick up any fish. I was using tipups. My buddies were using jigging rods. My Buddies son had a walleye about 18" swin right by his minnow twice, but no hookups.[sight fishing in 4 ft. water)

There were about 15 other anglers to the left of the landing in shallow water, stretched out along the shore for about 300 ft. but all I saw was a few small sunnies pulled up by the guys right near the landing.

That's the best I can tell ya.

Yeah i went out there yesterday for like a half hr and nothing. Didnt see one crappie even swim by. Then the ice started getting real loud and the whole column shifted a little bit on us, that was crazy, so we called it a day. Heard of big northerns back there this time of year, is that true?

Its about 5 6 miles out i would say, you cant miss it just keep your eyes to the left and watch for the big brown DNR water access sign. You'll go straight down to a parking lot, DONT TRY DRIVING OUT lol

      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     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "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.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      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.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access 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.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      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.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  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.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
