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.

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
