Nothing that is considered a ramp up that way until you get up by Georgetown, and that is not really a ramp, very bad access.

I have a good friend who lives up that way and he puts in at MB Johnson Park and runs North 23 miles to his place because there are no ramps closer.

If you have a smaller lightweight boat, and are up for some work and mud, you can try to get in near the new bridge at Georgetown?

Access points for boats are very limited on the Red once you get away from the main cities.

Isn't there a ramp in Halstad or Hendrum? I think Halstad has a ramp near the bridge, but I'm not sure. I believe Fred has commented on this ramp before- but maybe I'm dreaming the whole thing up!

Nope Scott, your not dreaming, it is called a ramp, but it is a mess.

I have not seen it this season yet but it was very close to danderous last season so I didn't mention it Scott.

With the water up some it may be usable? But be very carefull and be sure to have your motor up high when putting in.

Maybe it isn't that bad this year? If it is in better shape or has been worked on clue me in too guys?

thanks for the help, I guess i will keep putting in at MB park. I put in my 690
Ranger and fish usually south of the access.
Apparently it must navigable to north as well.
Is this the case that direction? Thanks. Jim

Yep, that's the direction I usually go. I typically head up around the golf course area. Here's a couple of good spots up there for me for both day and night bites. However, I have at times had good luck going to the south as well. When you get down to it, there's great fishing either way from any ramp on the Red, you just have to find the fish!
Ed, get your vehicle fixed yet? I'm still ready to go when you are. Do you think it'll be get better next week with some warmer weather?

Let's do some checking back on Mon. of next week. I'm thinking that maybe Wed. or Thurs. of next week might work for me, what about you? I'll probably be land-locked until early afternoon on both of those days, but if the weather will cooperate, that'll give us some good time on the water still.

Hey scoot thanks for the heads up!
maybe we can hook up sometime crack a cold
one string up a water dog and reel in some cats! I can relax on the red as I guide all the time on Leech. I don't guide on the red I leave that to the pro's. I also can't convince anyone over here to go cattin'. I get real tired of walleye muskie all the time. Cats are just plain cool.
P.s. I also own a cigar shop so I will bring the stogies for that 20 pounder. I f you get this way let me know maybe we can go work on some fish in this area. Any help with cats I sure will help over here with eyes or bass or muskies. I am going to red lake tommorrow! May the cats be with you.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
