Skeeter, it would be nice to see you guys again. However, I'll be at Mille Lacs with the family that weekend.

The perch bite is going nicely on Sarah. Same basic location we caught fish during the get together. The real trick is to walk in a line, drilling holes. Drill about 20 or so yards apart. Drill a BUNCH of holes. Go back to the first hole and fish it for about 5 minutes or so. If nothing happening, move downt the line. When you are on fish hang out and fisht them. Remember Sarah has no holding structure so even if on fish, you may not be on them for long. If the bite slows, move again. Don't forget how clear the water is. The fish are pretty skittish. Try not to bang stuff around. Tapping my foot on the ice makes the fish disappear. However, when not catching fish, having my son run around tapping the ice about 20 feet away, or drilling holes farther away has attracted the perch to me.

For vertical lures I've had best luck with Glow Demons and Rattling Varmits. Blue and white, red and white, green and white, and just plain white. Tip with whole minnow, minnow head, or waxies. Dead sticking with a red hook and fathead has done decent also.

I've also heard of crappies being caught in the area Reelemin was fishing.

Good luck to yous guys. Lets see some pictures when you're done.

      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.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
