JUST A QUESTION

Recommended Posts

theicehooker

why dont they start their own guiding businesses on the reservation. I am sure people would be willing to try lower Red and the west side of upper. I think they could bring some good money into the reservation if they did. I am just wondering. Is there some law they go by not to let anyone on the res or what??

Yep... well at least their waters of Red Lake.

It'll never happen.

Good Luck!

It's not only fishing... you cannot set one foot on the lower and western half of upper Spring, summer, fall or winter. It is written in their bylaws that only enrolled Red Lake Band Members may go on those waters. You can buy a non-resident fishing license for the other lakes on the res.... just not for their portion of Red Lake(s).

Good Luck!

Something we have to take into consideration is a HUGE cultural difference. We have a certian set of beliefs and practices and the tribe has a certian set of beliefs and practices. I don't care if you are black, brown, yellow, red, white or green with pink spots, someones beliefs may not be your beliefs but they should be respected either way.

I should mention that this is not directed at anybody, just my thoughts on it.

I understand their beliefs and values. I feel they could bring in alot of revenue to their community by doing this. I am not trying to say that I need more than what I am offered with the guide services that I have now, they are absolutely fantastic. I am just saying that if I saw a guaranteed stream of constant revenue it would be hard to pass up. Kind of like the Grand Portage band. They made a similar decision. Thanks for the feed back!!!

And then they would no longer have the lake to themselves. They have something in which money has no equal value to them... almost a quarter million acres of water!

I too would think long and hard about giving up the peace and serenity of the lower lake to hordes of fisherman showing up on opening day and trash left all over the ice in the winter...

They got by with almost zero money when the lake was shut down, the meager living they are making off it now is better than it was, and they didn't perish from that. I have a feeling that money, though important to everyone (including Red Lake band members) does not hold the same weight for the two different cultures. I think one culture thinks more in terms of surviving and the other thinks more in terms of indulgence.

Good Luck!

I think someone said it was the older band members not wanting to open that door. It would just be the start of a new can of worms. Once the older band members are gone, I bet you will see it happen.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      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)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      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"
