I am thinking about it. Is the ice good enough for ATV travel?

Its open. Get there early, as parking can be a pain.

I was out the 24th 10-3 not prime hours but found a lot of perch, no real size but it was fun. ATV was fine then but there where a few slush pockets. Not sure what all the snow did to that last night 25th and today. I would say ATV is ok still just have 2 and one with a wench.

MY OPINION ONLY...

8 to 10 inches in the 3 spots I fished.

Where is the access on the north end? I didn't know there was a public access on that end.

it is not a public access you have to park your vehicle on the side road and walk on. its about a 400 yard walk on the ice to get over by the new docks they built

Do you have to cross private land to get to the lake? Can a trailer be parked there?

Do you guys go out from the park launch?.....I'm on foot so is that the quickest way to 20-30 FOW?

my other half's parents live on Bald Eagle near the launch so all I have to do is park at their place and walk out from there. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif By foot, the launch would be the quickest place to get to that depth.

walk out from the access as soon as you get past the point you will all the groups of houses. which have well packed down snow for easy foot travel. all groups of houses fish the deeper holes. pick how far you want to travel

Well I drove by the park there and the lot was filled up pretty good and it looked like a total ZOO out there so I tryed White Bear instead. I'll have to try it this week sometime.

      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.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      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.
