Everything changes everyday. It's imposible to predict much of anything. Also remember that you could fit many 1,000's of MN's other lakes all together inside of URL. Hillman's road alone is 50+ different reports everyday.

KellyP and myself do not "guide" per say in the winter. We run sleeper houses on the lake and it keeps us plenty busy.

I guide during the open water season and early ice for pike.

Yep... those sleepers keep Jon and Kelly pretty busy... and when they have a free minute, they are busy babysitting me!!!

Good Luck!

Where did you go Labs? I went over for more soup today and nobody was around! Thought about busting into your shack and stealing the Swiss Cakes rolls you had stashed.

You know if you don't feed us we will hide the Labshack again. \:\/

They kicked me out and pirated my house! I think I fed them too much food and they want their wives to believe they really were ice fishing! grin.gif

Next time if the waether moderates a little, we'll get the grill fired up! Screw the soup! Time to grizzle down some hunks of meat!

Good seeing you and Jim and Kelly and Patsy...and.... grin.gif

See ya in a couple weeks! It feels good to be back!

Good Luck!

Is Jim your grandpa, Jonny? I've been reading a book based in Waskish (in the 60's), and Bill Callies, the game warden stated a couple times that a Jim Petrowske was a good friend of his.

Very cool. I'm not a Waskish regular, and don't know much about the history of the town. Did you know Bill Callies? If not, does your grandfather ever speak of him?

      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'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.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
