I would like to also thank Barry Hines and the boys at Izatys for providing great service and top-rate customer service. Anyone who has ever rented from them knows they go the extra mile. From delivering a case of beer to your shack to providing a gas grill, those guys will do it. Thanks!

As a season customer of Jerry Brandt's, I'd like to thank Jerry and crew for battling with the crack between 4 mile and 5 mile, it has been a bridge killer, a back breaker, and a skid plate tester! I have lost count how many times they've moved the bridge. Let's all hope it ain't there next year! Also, Jerry dropped a truck in this year, and was bridging the crack within a week after extracting it. That's dedication. The list goes on and on... smile.gif

Wanted to jump in and thank everyone at Hunter's Point. It was our rookie year for my wife and I and we couldn't be happier. George, Linda, Cassie, Dee, and the whole gang are top notch. Looking forward to a great summer!

I would like to thank Macs Twin Bay for another great winter of service. #1 on the lake in my opinion. Kevin and Karen are great people. And there staff is the best around. The roads are always big and clear I have never had a problem getting around on the resort. Also buzzies on the bay deserves alot of credit for running a class bar and resturant. There food is the best on the lake and there night time karoke is alot of fun way to go buzzies.

I'm new to Brandt's (about a month) but so far I like everything I've seen. Propane delivery, plowing, transfering the house when I bought it, and of course the prices. I plan to be there for a long time.

We stayed in one of Hunter's rentals and were very impressed. Very nice houses!! After all the snow on Saturday night I thought there was no way I would be able to drive my car off and would have to stay later than expected grin.gif but they had it plowed out and I didn't even need to shovel. One of the resorts neighbors(Wally) deserves a big thank you for letting us sleep on his floor when we couldn't get back out to the house from the resort Saturday night. Best of all we even got some fish!!!

      Well another game fish season has came to a end. The dnr will be having a meeting this week in Kellier to discuss the up and coming open water season.. I be leave our cabins are wide open with narly a date penciled in this summer including opener?
      Grab a cup of java because this is going to be a long blog.
      The first thing is what a great ending to another game fish season .
      The biggest thing and this come from my heart is" Thank you" to all my new and repeat customers . With out all of you I would not be able to enjoy working on such a grand lake. When that old timer Dave shared that with me I was in Awe. "Its a grand lake and it owes me nothing, nothing was his quote and boy did that stick. The walleye fishing this year could of been better. I'm all most to the point of calling them the elusive upper red lake walleye?
      Just like every season for 14 years now we have had great fishing, good fishing and poor fishing. I guess its the luck of the draw when you come up. We caught a couple,, we caught some and we caught a few over the season. The fishermen have become a little more tight lip about there walleye catches over the last couple years. Its so funny when You ask a fishermen how they did. The ponder and say oh we got a few? I've always been like how many is a few? Its always well we got 18? To me a few is 3, a couple is two and some can be 1 or more.
      The dnr will be releasing a summery of what's happening on the lake in the next upper red lake association news letter. If your interested in joining and becoming a member its 25 dollars a year or 50 if you want your business listed on there web site.
      I have a few gripes I want to share also. Some you will have to read between the lines.
      The first thing is Saturday night I was coming off of the lake on Hillmens highway. Buddy Hillmen is so dedicated to his road and there is no one prouder when it comes to maintaining a ice road.
      As I was coming on to the landing a big wheel house turned off the highway. I new right away they did not pay 10 dollars and there's a sign right there that says 10 dollars. I rolled down my window and he was like wow I did not know where to pay. Where do you pay? He had no problem finding the access but did not see the lights on in the bar with a few vehicles there? Give me a break.
      Kelly, Buddy Hillmens mechanic got 3 Thursday night pulling in. If you can not afford 10 dollars a day for your wheel house ? I personally think wheel houses should have to pay more?
      I also had a few customers that tried to slide by this year and its very frustrating . The deal I have with buddy hillmen is I can use his access and in turn my customers have to pay 10 dollars a day. I'm on call 24 hours a day for any ice road work ,plowing, bridging, etc. Over the years I have been accused of fishing where some one was going to go? fishing on some ones way points? Cutting someone off. Every year its something and again this year was no exception? Any side roads I personally plow to my houses are always open. Do I want fishermen by my houses? Nope. My customers pay good money and I do not want them looking out the picture windows and seeing a wheel house 30 yards away. There is always plenty of room where I plow as I'm the rouge plower. I have no problem plowing out a driveway for a wheel house as it helps pay for my equipment as it takes a beating out there.
      Its been a crazy season and its not over for me as I again chase the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. to be continued

      My snowmobile is dead so I can't vouch for the rest of the lake (anyone want a '97 Polaris 600 for free?) but when I augered through the ice in my bay, the ice was over 2ft thick - came to the middle of my thigh. However, there were several layers that the auger broke through and definitely some slushy ice mixed in. I would definitely be wary of areas with current! Stay safe

      Your all done Brian, thanks for stopping by!

      2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team

      I managed to get a couple of days off, so plan on pulling my wheelhouse up to LOW (Wheeler's Point) Wednesday morning. Reports have been kinda sparse, so am wondering what the latest and greatest is? Don't expect your Honey Hole spot, just general locations, ice and lake travel conditions, etc, etc. Any help is appreciated. Thanks 'Pout
