please keep the lake litter free.

5 posts in this topic

Hey everybody. This is my first posting. I just wanna say that I really enjoy fishing on Upper Red Lake and I want to remind everybody to please always pick up litter. Make an effort to keep the lake cleaned up. Sportsman (and sportswomen) should leave the lake as it was when they got there. Thank you.

i've been to url 3 times this year. each time
i have stopped to pick others' trash. if i wasn't picking up aluminum cans i was picking
up empty 1# propane cylinder tanks. i always do my part in keeping the area i fish as clean as it was before i got there. i have been brought up not to be a slob and pick up after myself. now all we need is others to clean up after themselves. if only....

We all need to pick up after the slobs. I wish they would bring their mothers with them as it appears that they are not mature enough to be out on a lake alone.

good thought kelly. i have a zero tolerance for littering slobs on the lake, or anywhere else for that matter. has anyone ever caught and confronted someone for leaving trash on the lake? if so, i'd like to hear your story. i hope i never catch anyone leaving trash behind.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
