Boat landings

7 posts in this topic

I've never fished Red in the summer and want to try to get up there sometime this year with our boat. I was just wondering which resort has the best boat landing or if there are any public landings? Thanks for any info

westwinds has a harbor and launch...probably the best bet otherwise the tamarac has a public landing can be tricky with the low waters.....

The DNR dredged a channel to the lake late last fall so acess is not a problem at the tamarac

I've stopped at that access in the fall while on my way to grouse hunting up in beltrami state forest, the the access is on the river...I'm just wondering because of it's location on the river if that's a safe access point in the winter?

not in the winter......there is always moving water there and there are rocks in the area that keep things warm and unstable (pretty shallow)......people have claimed they use it but for 8 bucks no thanks i will use a plowed road on ice that is a little more stable!!!

As for Channels ( Canals! what the ? crazy.gif) West Winds has a great harbor/marina with a good canal out. The mouth of the river can be good also for summertime use.

Before this last cold snap the only open water on the lake was along the shore and in front of the river. I was geting excited I would have a 50 yard hole to drive my boat around in then it refroze.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
