JR'S

We are thinking of trying JR's this weekend and were wondering if they have a restaurant at their place as I have seen that they will fry your fish, and just what everyone thinks of their roads and place in general? It will be a cold (BRRRRRR) weekend up there.

It's a good setup.No restaurant but do have deep fryer that they will cook your fish as you said and also do up potatoes with your fish. I think they have frozen pizza in the bar but not 100% sure.

JR and Chad keep the roads in good shape- not sure how far out they are these days as I haven't been there in 3-4 weeks

You clean your fish in the back of JRs Resort and he will fry them up for $5. He also does up a bunch of fr.fries with your fish.

They do have frozen pizza and some small snacks like chips and such. The only thing he had to wash down that pizza with was beer.

Went out of JR for the first time ever. I have been going out of the north end for years. Go there on Thursday morning talked to JR he told me a good place to go set-up and had my 2 fish within 2 hours. Brought 3 scoops of minnows and had to go get more Friday afternoon. Best weekend up there yet. Best part of it all the access there was still 8 bucks. Very nice place to go out of and will be back Thanks JR

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
