Red Rock Lake

Recommended Posts

Big Brown

I have an opportunity to buy some lakeshore on Red Rock and am trying to gather some information on the lake. Is the lake a pretty good fishery? What species? I have checked the DNR report but wanted to gets some input from local anglers. Is there any thing to the claim that there is a water quality problem.

I am going up to visit this weekend so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Big Brown, did you buy land on the northside of the lake, and if so do you wanna sell it to me? smile.gif

Anyways... I've spent many a days on Red Rock, so maybe I can lend some service. The lake has been stocked w/ walleyes about 4 outta the last 5 years, not tons of natural reproduction, although some does occur. The alst year or 2 has been bad as far as size, but numbers are still good. (Next year all the lil 12-14" eyes should be choice).
Surprised to report that the smallmouths that were stocked a few years back have come on REALLY well and there is a massive amount of 1 1/2+ lbs bass. (Worming along the south shore and around the island during summer can be awesome).
Nice northern population, but not a lot of size to em. (Not a big pike guy).
Now we get to the secret of the lake.... this lake has an AMAZING crappie population right now. On opener all we caught were 1, 1 1/2, and nearly 2 pound crappies off the dock on the northshore. My buddies are gettin a group of 5 around abouts 2#'s mounted. They are awesome through the ice and about the only thing that bites.
Theres lots more so e-mail me if you wanna know more...

Big Brown, do you know if there is any other property for sale on the lake? I've been looking for a while and would be interested.

Actually it is a lot currently owned by a buddy who is looking to sell. I will ask him more about the area tonight and post something tomorrow. If I decide not to buy the place I will be happy to put either of you in touch with him.

He claims that there are big sunfish in the lake as well. Any truth to this?

Any comments on the water clarity?

Water Clarity is awesome... except for early June til late August... the 3 farms on the lake have pumped huge amounts of chemicals into the lake. This green stuff blooms every summer (its supposedly some micro sized shrimp). As they die they clump together and make big clumps that float right at the surface. Also they stick to everything, and when they dry they turn to this aqua color that sticks to anything and can stain. Its a big mess and no solution is apparent yet.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
