Just got back, and stayed there from the 26 till today. They have some roads-but not very far out at all. We had a snowmobile, and got around fine-but I am not sure paying their road pass fee for the limited roads your going to get is worth it. Their were some wheelers comming of further south right of 169....public access maybe. Getting around with a wheeler is going to be tough, and somewhat limited due to the slush in spots-but their cerainly are plenty out there. Who knows, the slush may freeze up a bit. People are using them, and you will be able to follow tracks, and know when slush is in your sights....

Bite was nothing to write home about, but did manage a meal of nice size perch for the four of us, and also one 27" walleye that went back.

Good luck. The majority of the keeper perch action was out past Eddys houses about 300 yards-we put plenty of work hopping holes from Eddys to Rockey Reef, with not much of anything.

I also went out of Eddy's on 12-28. It was the 1st time I went out of Eddy's for ice fishing and the last. They only had the road plowed to their houses. I tried to get around with a four wheeler, but with the slush I was not going anywhere. If u want to go and explore I would look to a resort with plowed roads.

We did the hotel and unlimited house package, which for the price worked for us...the free breakfast, and box lunch were nothing we considered in any of it, but were both very good. We intended to work a bit with the portables, use the house as a basecamp, and then have a nice option of showers, and the comforts of the hotel room. Even though the fishing was nothing great, the entire trip was rather inexpensive. I would note, we stood around waiting for over a half hour upon getting there waiting to get someone to haul all our stuff out the first time....which was not very impressive...drive for three hours, itching to get a line in-and wait...not good.

I would have to say that conditions of the ice and weather would determine if we went back.

Heading back up with my wife in Feb. and am would like to try another place..most like a forum sponsor, as the wife and I like to spend more time on the ice and can do with out the hotel.

      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'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.
