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.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
