Ballard's Resort

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about jumping on a bus and trying some charter boat fishing Sept 16-20 at Ballard's. Have never fished the LOW and was wondering if this summer/fall transition is a good time of year to be fishing, or should I pass and wait till next spring. Any info would be appreciated.

Joe: If your going to a resort that has charter service, they'll put you on fish just about anytime of the year. Ballards does a good job and the accommodations are first class. Fall is one of the best, if not the smile.gif best time for good fishing. Why wait, you probably will want to go next spring too... Kaz

Last time I was there, they also had some very good looking waitresses. JMO.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
