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....

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
