    We will be in there 2nd weekend & looking forward too it!
  4. My cabin is very close to where your boat is in that pic. It was 40 around there last weekend. Headed up again Thursday morning.
  5. Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November? I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport. It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

    Walleye Really This Big?

    I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.
  7. On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week. Clear weather in forecast. Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'. Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange. Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues. Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits. Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river. Sturgeon have the feed bag on. The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019. The bite is on! Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent. Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'. Jigging still producing. Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays. Fall crappie bite continues strong. Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not! Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish. The best fall fishing is yet to come!

    Walleye Really This Big?

    Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?

    Walleye Really This Big?

    I am gonna go out on a limb here and say they did not catch a 15 pound walleye on Upper Red in MN.

    How Do You Get On Early Ice Crappies?

    Early ice I am always targeting big crappies not numbers and I always start shallower in the weeds that are still green and I use bigger profile spoons tipped with a minnow head or even a large plastic monnow profile. I find that the larger crappies will move in for a short while and be feeding on the remaining minnows until they head back out. I fish in that 6-9" area with great results very early ice.

    I'll be out second weekend in my traditional spot as well. Always see deer but I have yet to stick one. Hoping this is the year!

    Grouse hunting

    Wow, impressive! I was out in northern MN over the weekend and, while working on stands, flushed six. No shots as all were roosted high in the trees thanks to the rain, but made for some excitement at least.

    I worked all last summer at camp lawn mowing. I’ll tell ya it was a lot of work but very rewarding. I love hands on work and like to get the job done. The one day it was to hot to mow so we jumped in the trucks and did a 60 mile loop down range. Let me tell ya there’s some nice deer out there this year. I’ve been around camp my whole life but yet to experience the full “experience” of camp. It was so cool. Ferrell would be a good bet for eyes or gills very small pretty lake indeed. Good luck to all who will be participating and we look forward to hearing your stories.

    Rod Bags/cases

    What I’m starting to find out is there’s not a specific case as everyone has there own liking and what they want in a rod case. With that being said yes going to a ice show or like the thorn bros gathering will allow you to look any many different rigs and choose which would work best for you.

    Lol wrong topic for that photo I could not figure out where this post went stupid phone
  19. The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41. It’s cold!

    A bit of a hike in, but well worth it, Mud Lake off the Inchon Trail I'm sure.....maybe we can meet up Brian and Tracie, I'll bring the potatoes and baked beans

    Probably Lake Alott. It kinda looks like a lot.
  22. I seen on JR's Facebook they had a pic of a tournament on upper red. It showed a #8, #12.6, #14.4 and a #15 walleye......I thinking this was some kinda joke....can anyone enlighten me. When I talked to a guide a year or so ago I asked him how many #10 walleye he seen come out of upper red......he said he hadn't seen one since he started to guide.

    No dumpster at Rogers

    After reading all the post and having gone to upper red once a year sometimes twice (Started renting shacks then got a wheel house 3 yrs ago) for the past eleven years. I find this entire thread and topic somewhat laughable. The locals and resorts seem to complain about an issue they've brought upon themselves. I kinda agree with the post you've put up to a point. Here is my view.....maybe it is wrong. I drive 7+ hours from Northwest Iowa pay the fees to fish in Minnesota for a couple days. Pay the resort fees for roads, pay for services at the resorts. I tend to buy fuel, bait, propane, and food at the places we use, and sometimes other services. These people make a living using the lake to BRING the business to them. Then when they get the people to the lake and get some money flowing and are having success with people showing up.......the big problem is trash......Seems pretty simple to me if your a resort......figure out trash management for you customers. They showed up and are using the services you provide. A simple $5 tagged onto a road fee with avalible dumpsters could solve the problem. I actually have never had any issues with trash on my trips....so I'm a bit supprised by all this. I mean people are going through the resorts for services and willing to pay. If $5 was a deal breaker.....then why wouldn't people just go out of the public acess points, and not pay any resort fees. The first 7yrs the guide we use had a trailer on the lake and had his customers throw tied off bags of trash in it. Then he disposed of it. The last three years with my shack the resort we went out of had a dumpster to throw the trash in. I'd gone out of JR's Access, West Winds, and Rogers. When We came off the lake we stopped in and asked if we could throw our trash away....they always said yeah put it in the dumpster.
  24. Thanks. That's one of the ones that I was considering.
  25. The water temps were 44-47 degrees over most of the lake this weekend. Black Bay partially froze Friday night into Saturday.
  26. I saw a lot of guys running planner boards. We braved the cold ride Friday and Saturday, going from the far west end over near Shamrock. We spot locked in the wind and had pretty good success with the 11-13" walleyes but nothing of size except a few beautiful jumbo perch. We just used jigs in 30-35ft of water with rainbow minnows, the smaller the better. Big minnows were useless. We didn't stay at any of the west end locations too long, but mostly because we weren't marking fish and weren't getting any bites. I would have liked to work longer for the bigger fish.
