Anyone have any reports? I am starting my hardwater fishing very late this year and I am looking for a little info before driving up that way.

Thanks

I was there on Saturday and it was a city. Fishing was tough. A few crappies but as mentioned, small. Talked to a few people who did alright with sunnies.

Was by there today and seen a pick up on the ice and a bunch of houses. I remeber when I used to be the only one out there and that was not that long ago.

I grew up fishing this lake, and my wife's family is in the area, (Day), so after Christmas celebrations on the 29th we (myself and some of her family) ventured out at 7:30 pm. Many fish housed out there, and quite a few vehicles. I caught 6 small crappies, very small crappies. I was the only one useing a vexilar, and the jiggle stick and spring bobber with euro larve were the ticket. Everyone else was skunked.

Good luck.

I haven't fished there for 2 years now, and when I was last out there, we did okay on gills, and had a few crappies in the bag too, but they were all small to medium average, maybe 6.5 and 9 respectively. Was able to watch a pike about 3 lbs come in and nail a jig on the camera though, that was pretty cool.

I was just out the weekend before Chirstmas and a budy and me did really well on the crappies. 10-11 inch average. At that time the ice was really crappy. Lots of slush,4inches I'd say. I am sure by now it is nice.

We were fishing in about 14 ft. We were left of the landing and out about 50-75 yrds from the creek that comes in.

there aren't many in the summer for the fact all the fish are trying to regroup from the winter slamming!! LOL The thing to watch in the summer is the landing is just a dirt road that runs into the lake and the sand can suck a wheel or 2 in!! Tuff to pull out a boat with burried tires!! HAHA

I heard Lory lake is safe and crappies and sunfish are hitting pretty good on wax worms. The talk about his lake being a sleeper makes me laugh. A few years ago maybe. More like 20yrs ago when I had to bike there. Now I think it is over fished again. No matter, I'll stay off the lake for a few years. I have heard alot of negative things about this forum. To many stuck-up people. Noses in the air. Not that I have been in here much, from what I have seen here, I am glad that I have not. And will not be again.. LATER!!

really how hard is this lake to fish? The thing that bothers me is we have very few lakes in Princeton/Cambridge area and dont need alot of people from the cities coming up and slamin them. I good example was the post about Quamba(mud) last year. When I moved up here 6 years ago Lory Lake was kinda of a sleeper but not any more. One last thing, the guy who caught the 10-11 inch crappies where probably more like 7-8 inches.

quamba and these little lakes basically go through cycles of getting hit hard and then people stay away from them for a few years and then it happens all over again.....people like to fish and like to tell people about it and these little lakes take the beating!! I just try to be the guy to continue checking these lakes in the slow time and try to be the first one out when they begin to produce again!!

And, there you go again.

And, BTW. It ain't just people from the cities that have creamed these lakes (or blabbed about them).

Both of you guys ought to do an edit before the lake sits here too long again.

      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.
