West Side

Anyone gone up to Raven yet this year? I will be up this weekend and wondering what the breaker situation is like. We usually come on from the Winnie Campground on the SW side because we have a hunting shack close to that side of the lake.

Guess not. I'll send an update after this weekend.

Made it to Raven. Any more snow and it would be very difficult to get to without a sled. I don't think the effort provided anything special. We picked up a few perch, but nothing more than any other part of the lake.

We'll be up again in Feb on the last weekend for Walleyes. Gotta give it one last shot.

Thanks for the report. I'm also going to be there the same weekend in Feb that you are, we usually bounce back and forth between Winnie and Red but we stay at Winnie.

We usually do at least one day on Red, depending on how Winnie is producing and the weather. It looks like we'll be there for 4 days, so I imagine at least one will be on URL.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
