The Red and wild rice near Hendrum

Recommended Posts

huntnfish

I saw a few people fishing the Red and Wild Rice up near Hendrum on Saturday and was wondering if it was any of you. Just curious how the fishing was and if you had any trouble getting around on the Wild Rice.

Where did you put your boat in at? The only thing that I could come up with is Hendrum and the last time I saw that ramp, it was in bad shape. I was the guy on the four wheeler that asked you how the fishing was. How far up the Wild Rice did you go?

That was me. Good fishing on the WR. Few eyes but had to let go right away as the season is not open yet. Lots of cats, one at 31", many in the 20" range. All went back to the river.

Oh that wasnt me at the mouth of the wild rice. Not sure who that was. I was shore fishing up by the old 75 bridge.
You talking about the point right?
Last time i was out there a guy on a four wheeler asked me if i had seenn his cow, that was last summer, and he was on the ND side of the red.
The Hendrum landing is a rough one allright.
The town is planing on raising some funds this summer to get it fixed.
The only way to put somthing in at the landing now is to have a small boat and motor
and put it in by hand. I did see a guy back his trailer down to the river on the north side of the landing but it was last week and pretty solid, he still had to muscle it in the water and there was alot of tire spinning getting his truck back up the hill.
Trying that now for the next couple of weeks and you better call a wrecker to meet you out there. Best landing right now that i know of north of Moorhead is Frog Point out by Climax.
I do alot of shore fishin on the red and wild rice in the Hendrum area, have had a blast the past couple of years catching those cats and the occasional walleye. Some of the best fishing i have ever experianced.
Now if i could just get my wife to buy off on me getting a second boat so i could put it in the rivers i would almost be in heaven.

I like to fish in the Hendrum area too, but the landing there makes it tough to get my boat launched. It wouldn't take too much to get the ramp fixed if someone had some equipment that could reposition the concrete grates in the ramp. I didn't know there was a ramp in Cliamx. Is it a concrete or a dirt ramp Ordie? With all this rain the cats should be ready to eat!! Bruce

Bruce,
The landing im talking about is at the Frog point park on the ND side of the river.
Cross the river at the bridge outside of Climax and go about 2 miles then take a right onto a dirt road. Its about 3/4 of a mile down. If you have any problems finding it just ask a local at the Cenex in Climax, they will point you in the right direction, thats how i found it.
The ramp there is a nice one, poured concrete
and a small dock. I havent been there this year so i dont know if the dock is out with the river being low.
Halstad has a boat ramp in the plans for this year, they are still trying to figgure out where to put it. Will it happen? Who knows.
Cats are on the feed right now. No real big numbers but they are eating. Frogs are working well, along with cut goldeye.

      How is it going today

      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

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
