JR's Corner

Coming up this weekend and we'll be using JR's access. What is the best way to get there from Kelliher? Is there an address that I could use on Mapquest. Has anyone used the access recently? Thanks in advance.

72 N out of Kelliher and then take a right on 23. Then just keep driving until you see JR's. The road will change to gravel eventually and then it is a couple of miles after that. You will see a sign when you come to it.

It is a good place! A nice spot to clean fish and he will fry them up and give you a huge plate of fries for $5. Can't beat it. They also have pizza, beverages, showers, etc. I forget the access fee. Somewhere around $10 I believe.

I will be there myself this weekend out of JR's.

Good luck.

Was up to JR's last week and caught good numbers of walleyes before the cold front. Just stop in and talk to JR and he will tell ya where to set up. I like being able to take walleyes back to their bar and get em cooked up with fries for 5 bucks.

We caught all our fish on a dead stick, plain hook and minnow! They left the area after we jigged, so we left it up to dead sticks and rattle reels. Our game of dirty clubs rarely made it two hands without a fish being caught.

Coming up this weekend and heard from a buddy that a couple guys he knows got into some eyes out of jrs during the nasty weather last wekend. Has this area been fairly productive all year? bringing my brother who's never been on red just trying to get him into some action. Last year we went out of hillman's and did a lot of hole popping and pounded the slabs. wondering if there has been anything to speak of in this area regarding the slabs or is it the typical 1-2 mixed in?

If you have the fish cleaned there and Barney is doing the cleaning say hi to him for me. We play poker every week if he's back home. Just tell him it's the guy who always wins. He'll know who! Thanks!!

Coming up Sat-Mon. Is there shower's available down by JR's Corner, or do I have to head up to WestWind?

Also, renting a 4-man sleeper from Battle River Lodge, I assume Jerry will take care of a guy?

any reports?

Don't know about JR's, but Morts has showers, you don't need to go all the way to the east side for that...

JR's does have showers available for customers.

Out of 24 hours I think Jerry spends at least 95% of his time up at the lake. He comes home for supplies and heads back up....so I think he will take care of you! Let me know if he doesn't!! I'm sure JR sees him more than I do! crazy.gif

So Jr knows his stuff. He isn't a guide though, right. Just wondering. I am a virgin to URL. So thats why I ask.

Just got a call from Jerry at 6:27PM (friday) and he says it's like an old timer used to say "some are catching and some are not"! One group is here for a few hours and they are doing really well...in a "hot" spot and others are not doing as well.

I forgot to ask on specific species...so presuming walleye.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
