Harmony Beach Vacation

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a week at Harmony Beach Resort, and wow is this an awesome place! They were easily able to accommodate my wife’s huge family! Their whole setup is really nice. The 2 guys they had working at the docks were awesome! 

 

My wife’s family doesn’t fish, so I was the amateur guide for the week...except for 1 day, where her brother actually hired a guide. I didn’t bring my boat, because it’s just too small for Kabetogama, and the other available boat was out of commission. So with only 1 boat for the week, we had to shuttle people back and fourth, which cut down on fishing time, but it worked out.

 

The guide we went out with typically takes people to Rainy Lake through kettle falls, but we wanted to stay on “kab” and Namakan. We still had shore lunch at kettle falls though, which was a cool ordeal. He also took us to check out hoist bay and stevens’ island. It was really windy that day, so it probably prevented us from fishing an extra spot or 2, but it was still a really fun experience.

 

Overall, we caught around 150 fish for the week. We caught a ton of pike! Surprisingly, not very many bass. Several jumbo perch. And an equal mix of walleye and sauger. Biggest pike was 30 inches. Biggest walleye was 23 inches. Biggest bass was 17.5 inches. Like I said before, my wife’s family doesn’t fish, so a lot of people were catching their first ever walleye or pike. So there was lots of excited kids (and grown ups) all week!

 

Lots of fun was had, both on the water and at the cabin. Sounds like this may have been the first of an annual trip. Harmony Beach is awesome!

*LOL* They actually do have family from Texas! But he is not one of them.

 

Seems like we were the only people from Minnesota staying at the resort! They had a group from Texas, Tennessee, and Louisiana.

      Ya I suppose I could use a blade proof glove.  On occasion if I'm with someone that is willing and able to clean a few fish, they'll do it for me.   That photo by eyeguy with all his knives kinda freaked me out.  If there's a serial finger chopper on the loose, we'll know who the guilty party is.

      Caught these nice gills a few weeks ago down in SW Minnesota on a farm pond. Sorry no public access...…………..

      Wow with only a month left of walleye fishing too go it has again been a brutal season on the shores of upper red lake. The grand lake that owes us nothing.  Last year it was brutally cold this week with wind chills below -60. I will have to say I'm happy were not having that right now  For the second time since my car accident I wet a line yesterday for 3 or 4 hours.  Th fishing report In old Minnesota after it was fished on a new spot Friday and Saturday was I'm a little out of practice. I was jigging a gold rattling flyer  while watching Boston legal.  The first fish hit my lure while I was lying on the bed. It caught me totally buy surprise as I was jigging. I set the hook while lying down. Trying to set up while keeping the line tight was not in the cards.  I quickly got another minnow on the lure  sent her down. 1 or 2 good jigs and I was marking a fish. Only it was not a fish but my quickly hooked minnow escaping off the lure. Another minnow, back down the hole. I guess I educated that fish as it looked a few times but only nibbled a couple times.  Mean while the rattle wheel went off around the bewitching hour. Rolling out of the bed with my brace on I go over give it a little line, but instead of setting the hook like I normally do.I pulled the line up real slow to feel the fish. I felt it on the line,set the hook and proceeded to rip it right out of its mouth. Glad I was not having fish on the menu as I packed it up a bit later with no fish to take home.  Ashey re grand daughter is up here helping out. Her and my great grand son bently john were going to spend the night out there so we will see how they did later today.   Well the best I can do on my fishing report is all the houses did manage to catch some fish the first 24 hours.as Ashly checked on all them Saturday.  Sean Joff and  a friend or relative from Florida were up Friday with there sleds. They managed to find a few fish even getting the guy from Florida his first walleye.  Kevin and his crew were ib Kentucky they also had a couple sleds. Not sure how they did in the house but they did find some fish where they went on there sleds. They even had a little run in with  a guy in a v-plow  Shane  and his wife were in montana I ran into then Saturday morning. They had landed 4 nice ones fishing large rainbow minnow on a plain red hook Saturday morning. From what I gathered from Ashley everyone was enjoying there stay.  Jonny boy and Richy  spent part of the day going out on there sleds looking for the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. There elusive for a reason, they did find some little scuff it walleyes which was a good sign but no crappies.  We did get another shipment of black and red hoodies in with just a couple pink ones.  We only have one house rented later today so the guys have 3 days to get every thing reset for the up and coming weekend.  I did check the ice thickness Where old sota was  It was a solid 27 inches, that explained why there was no flood ing around the house

      M & B jig either come with teaser tail or you can buy  the teaser tails.

      Saw the pics and story hats off to the kids sounds like they earned it!
    • eyeguy 54
      sure is.  another thing that worked today was to go below them, then slowly come back above, stop then wiggle. crazy fish that's for sure. the smaller ones hammered it normal but the bigger ones were tricky.

      Rumor has it a walleye that "likely" tipped the scales near 15 lbs was caught on a lake near Mille Lacs. From what I read, the fish was weighed the day after it was caught at 14.186 lbs and lost a couple ounces just in the time it was at the bait shop being weighed.

      does anyone know how much ice is out there?
