Update on Hudec's Resort (northeast shore of Red Lake)

2 posts in this topic

Hudec’s Resort is open, although it may not currently offer a complete line of resort services. Don Hudec and family are still maintaining and operating the motel cabins, the camp sites and the boat launching ramp into the resort’s boat harbor.

My dog and I pitched my tent on a prime lakeshore campsite this past weekend. I launched my small boat in the boat harbor, and tied it up a few feet from my tent.

The formerly deep channel from the boat harbor to the lake has filled in substantially with sand. In some places the channel water depth in the lake shallows area is around 6” deep… a really big boat and motor will move some sand getting out onto the lake and returning to the boat harbor.

There were several fishing parties staying in the cabins who were fishing out of medium-size boats with outboard motors hydraulically adjustable for shallow running. I was using a small trolling motor. None of us had any trouble getting from the harbor to the lake and back again…

One of the better fishing areas this time of year is straight out from Hudec’s boat harbor channel. Many of the boats launched at resorts on the south and east shores of the lake, and at the public launch sites on the Tamarac River, were trolling, drifting or anchored in a long line extending in both directions along the 6 foot water depth line.

If you’re looking for a premium lakeside tent campsite, or a premium lakeside RV campsite that may not have electricity continuously… a quarter mile from where you’ll probably be fishing… you should stop in and talk with Don Hudec or his family the next time you’re in the area. I don’t know that there’s a phone number… best to visit and talk directly with the Hudecs.

Sunday of the opener I pulled in there, Was looking to launch my boat. The Public acess' were full. When I got to Hudec's I thought the place was closed. So I ended up going down to WestWind to launch.

There were people camping there, but it just didn't have the we're open feeling.

I have gone out thru Hudec's a handfull of times during the Ice season. The people The Hudec's had always been extremely accomidating. Opener weekend had me wondering if the establishment was still operational. Glad to hear they are offering campsites.

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
