CorynTracySellHomes

This Saturday March 2nd We are having a Rush Lake clean up day! Cleaning up after all the slobs that left garabage on the lake. If you are able to attend that would be great! Especially if you have an Atv/snowmobile and a trailer! Please let me know if you think you can help! Either E-mail me or call.

Cory,

Every time there is an "event" that I'd like to help out with, the day is already booked.

Wish I could help.......good luck.

West Rush needs a little help. I was out there on Saturday and saw plenty of garbage and picked up my fair share. I saw everything from 12 pack cardboard containers, to wood blocks, to pop cans. However, the most distinctive item was a dead coyote. Yes, a coyote! Cory, are you going to pick that one up?

If I'm there on Saturday, I'll pick up some more crap. Thanks to everyone who can't pick up after themselves. If you're one of them, stay the heck off everyone else's lakes, and stay the heck out of this forum!

LOL!

You might want to put that one on about a two-day simmer. That coyote may be a little tough, otherwise.

I was surprised to see how much snow had fallen. I brought along a garbage bag, but I think the snow covered up any garbage that might be lying around. Maybe next weekend.

P.S.
The fishing was OK. Not as good as last weekend.

You know something comes to mind. All these so called sportsman who complain about rules and rights, but yet SOME of them leave their trash on the lakes. Makes ya wonder about all the bitchin everybody does about rights. Think about it alot of these jokers who are complaining are just the ones who are leaving the crap lay around. Wonder if any of them have seen an animal stuck in a can or a bird caught in a plastic 6 pack holder. Keep up the great work with your cleaning duties. I can't help as the creeping crud is going thru my family. FLU... yuck!!

I think that the people that leave all that crap on the lakes don't complain because they don't care!

      The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41.  It’s cold!

      A bit of a hike in, but well worth it, Mud Lake off the Inchon Trail I'm sure.....maybe we can meet up Brian and Tracie, I'll bring the potatoes and baked beans 😎

      Probably Lake Alott.   It kinda looks like a lot. 😉

      I seen on JR's Facebook they had a pic of a tournament on upper red.  It showed a #8, #12.6, #14.4 and a #15 walleye......I thinking this was some kinda joke....can anyone enlighten me. When I talked to a guide a year or so ago I asked him how many #10 walleye he seen come out of upper red......he said he hadn't seen one since he started to guide.    
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      After reading all the post and having gone to upper red once a year sometimes twice (Started renting shacks then got a wheel house 3 yrs ago) for the past eleven years. I find this entire thread and topic somewhat laughable. The locals and resorts seem to complain about an issue they've brought upon themselves. I kinda agree with the post you've put up to a point.    Here is my view.....maybe it is wrong. I drive 7+ hours from Northwest Iowa pay the fees to fish in Minnesota for a couple days. Pay the resort fees for roads, pay for services at the resorts. I tend to buy fuel, bait, propane, and food at the places we use, and sometimes other services. These people make a living using the lake to BRING the business to them. Then when they get the people to the lake and get some money flowing and are having success with people showing up.......the big problem is trash......Seems pretty simple to me if your a resort......figure out trash management for you customers. They showed up and are using the services you provide. A simple $5 tagged onto a road fee with avalible dumpsters could solve the problem. I actually have never had any issues with trash on my trips....so I'm a bit supprised by all this. I mean people are going through the resorts for services and willing to pay. If $5 was a deal breaker.....then why wouldn't people just go out of the public acess points, and not pay any resort fees.   The first 7yrs the guide we use had a trailer on the lake and had his customers throw tied off bags of trash in it. Then he disposed of it. The last three years with my shack the resort we went out of had a dumpster to throw the trash in. I'd gone out of JR's Access, West Winds, and Rogers. When We came off the lake we stopped in and asked if we could throw our trash away....they always said yeah put it in the dumpster.

      Thanks. That's one of the ones that I was considering.

      The water temps were 44-47 degrees over most of the lake this weekend. Black Bay partially froze Friday night into Saturday.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a lot of guys running planner boards. We braved the cold ride Friday and Saturday, going from the far west end over near Shamrock. We spot locked in the wind and had pretty good success with the 11-13" walleyes but nothing of size except a few beautiful jumbo perch. We just used jigs in 30-35ft of water with rainbow minnows, the smaller the better. Big minnows were useless.   We didn't stay at any of the west end locations too long, but mostly because we weren't marking fish and weren't getting any bites. I would have liked to work longer for the bigger fish.

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.
