Good weekend

7 posts in this topic

I rented a sleeper house through JR’s Corner Access for three nights with two buddies over New Year’s weekend. The owner moved the house to a favorable location right before we got there which was very nice. We caught a total of 38 walleyes with the majority of fish 15-20”. Also, we missed quite a few. This was my first time fishing Red Lake, and I was very happy with the lake and resort.

my guys had similar fishing success.

JR and Chad Benson, who also guides out of the resort are both great guys and work to keep their houses on fish

Does the resort at JR' access have much for food, drink, and bait? There will be a group of twelve of us going up next weekend and going through Chad Benson. Hopefully with this warmer weather coming the bite will be good. Has anyone used any Reelweeds on Red? If so do you think they have helped hold the fish around longer? I'm debating on buying a box of them before we head up. Thanks

Jr's has a fish cleaning area, and he will fry up your catch with fries for $5. It was good. He also has beer, so my two food groups were satisfied. He has minnows also. Other than that, I think he has chips and snacks. We were out about 1.5 miles in the red house. We caught the most fish on a plain red hook with a fathead. Also, I should apologize to anyone who heard us sing kareoke on new year's eve. Good luck!

I made my own "reel weeds" and tried them on red last weekend, it didn't seem to help that much for walleye. Seems to me that they would work better for holding crappie. Last weekend sounded like the bite was pretty slow though but I didn't notice a big difference with the weeds down. Give em a shot

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Yup had my favorite sucker fishing spot get posted a couple years back, because of slobs...I'll never understand it.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
