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.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few. 
    • Parmer
      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
