Adrian's Resort

Recommended Posts

A group of us are coming to Adrian's Resort on the 16th of this month and are wondering about the bite, report, and the resort overall. If anyone have any information, it will be greatly appreciated. It'll be our first time to Adrian's. Thanks, Lee

I'll also be at Adrian's that weekend. I'm keeping my eyes on this post as well. Hopefully it will be ok, but I'm hearing right now it is very quiet.

Been 3 weeks since I was up, so can't give you a report, but have stayed at Adrian's for over 5 years and always been treated well. Brian does a good job moving the houses around.

I will be going up on the 15th for 3 days. Its my 3rd trip up and will be staying at Adrians. A friend of mine was up on Monday to Thursday out of RiverBend and did very well in about 23 ft. Adrians houses last weekend were from 19 ft to 32 ft. If the weather stays stable we should do OK!!

headed to Riverbend on Monday Jan 12 with my wife. We'll be fishing 13th and 14th. I'll put something on here when we get back on the 15th. Looks like a little clipper out of Canada next week, should be interesting. We'll see what happens. Bill

That guy is quite the character. I was up on the big pond last year hunting divers and stayed at riverbend. We shot the **** with Gordy all weekend. Never seen a guy take down so many yag bombs in my LIFE! crazy

Onlyice: hopefully the bite will be better than right after Xmas otherwise there will be a lot of fish left over for you!!!!

Ya, Gordy is a fixture up there. I first met him 10 years ago when Glenn and Pam still owned the resort. Definitley the kind of guy you want pouring drinks at your bar, before you know it you can be well in the bag just listening to his stories. I think he knows everybody in a 100 mile radius. Knowing Gordo he might be on the other side of the bar when we're there.

I'm taking my wife along as mentioned. In the past she's been known to kick my butt, but I always tell her don't forget who rigged your rods up with the right bait. Looking forward to the trip, sounds like it will be just a little cool next week. Oh well, don't have to worry about a lot of water on the ice LOL

Only Ice and Cupped: Do you guys remember a young lady who bartended there up until about 2 years ago? I thnk her name is Jody. Anyway we were out fishing one day back then and her, her mom and a couple of other young ladies were fishing one of the Bends houses about a block away. Early afternoon she comes trudging through the snow to our house and wants to know how we're doing. The fish were really on for both of our houses and we jawed a little bit about it. One of my son's said the only problem was we didn't have any beer. so she takes off back to her house and pretty soon we look out the window and here she comes again, and has 4 beers stuffed in her jacket pockets. What a hoot. We bought her a couple that night at the lodge. Would have give her a ride back but we had come out in track vehicles. I saw her during Xmas break, she was in the lodge and sledding with some friends. Still remembered us and just as friendly as ever. Just thought I'd throw this out there as nothing better to do this afternoon...LOOOL Bill

Sure I'll buy it, do you take a payment plan? Get that thing up here and I'll help fix it all summer. In fact, I'll even show you how to drive it faster!

Call me and give me a report while you are up here, I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures of all the fish we are catching.

Nama: I thought that Jodi had gone into the insurance business. I owned an agency for 22 years until retiring and selling in June. We used to talk about the business and when she left the Bend I lost track of her. I believe her mom was cooking at the Bend for awhile, but haven't seen her this year. I'm leaving in an hour, should be a fun ride. Looks llike we'll run out of the snow around Bemidji but I don't think I can outrun the cold. Brrrrr. Talk Thursday when I get back. Bill

No, I didn't make it out. The baby is sick, and we all were tired, so I just hung out. That's why I never called. Sorry.

By the way, it wasn't your heart you were following, it was a spot a few feet lower!

We have stayed with Adrian's the past 5 years and just got back from a quick 2 days of fishing with them, slow bite, fished deep(6 miles out 32 ft) first day less than 25 fish for 4 guys in 2 shacks, kept 5. Best presentation was as small a shiner you could put on your plain red hook right on the bottom. 2nd day we fished there shallow shacks to the east in 20 ft, better bite but still slow from our past years, again, light bite, plain hook out produced everything else..Adrian's does a great job..have fun...gold, pink/white produced decent as well, jigging brought the fish in but would not hit even a stationary jig....

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.
    • KidMoe
      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish. 
    • Borch
      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too

      ya don't need a cajun, just the seasonings!!!!  and the rest of the fixins of course!!! but it would be fun with the real thing too!!
    • rangerforme
      We just got back from a week primarily fishing the east/south side.  I won't lie it was super tough, we didn't even mark fish for hours some days driving around the humps/shoreline breaks.  Usually its pretty good this time of year but this year it was brutal.  Few days we'd end up with 2 or 3 fish for half a day of fishing.  The tank at camp probably counted 35 walleyes cleaned for the week for 40 anglers.  Few slots but just not biting down that way.  Lots of pike came in and panfish.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Tough bite for decent fish the past few days! Went out by myself this morning and switched tactics again. Trolled spinners/1/2 crawler and #4 gold Shad Raps on a 3-way rig in 24' to 30'. Had my limit of 4, 15" to 16" walleyes and a jumbo in the first hour! Released 5 other smaller walleyes also during the 2-1/2 hours that I was out. Cliff
    • Naturboy
      Went out yesterday for a little while, thought I’d just go close with the kayak given the time slot I had. Just planned on small gills and and bass, ( the normal catch in this place), but 2 18” walleyes supprised me.  A couple of loons were the only company I had while I was there. Lots of gills and bass as I expected just small in size. 
    • Gone Out Fishin
      @Mike89 if I still had my traps I'd do a Crawfish Boil. Need some Cajuns to help me.
