Red Rock & Freeborn Lakes near Kensington


Recommended Posts

I am going to be in the area in a week and plan on hitting these 2 lakes. So how has the bite for eyes, northerns and craps been?

I know someone that fished Freeborn on opener & caught a bunch of small northerns, I've never fished it. I haven't been on Red Rock in 7-8 years & haven't heard anything about it recently.

Freeborn has been decent in the winter...have not been on it in the summer in several years.

Red Rock will be fun. Very clear water and will need to cover some water to locate the eyes. We did OK on Crappies last week to the left of the access towrds the point in 14 feet. We also scored some sunnies in the weeds.

MNMuskie,

Red Rock is clear this year, Ussually it is green stained with algae, wierd. In years past, I have never caught anything near that point. We ussually do well for eyes around the island and at the small northeast bay where a small stream runs in or out.

Thanks,

~Josh

When were you last on RR? The water has really been cleaned up.

One last spot for walleyes...thei is from years ago...but...go around the point to the far back of the bay. Work the shore line where the hardwoords are. Years ago we trolled raps here and did well over a period of years...remember to CPR a few.

MM,

The summer of 2003 was the last time I was out there. I keep having babies at the end of may so I haven't been able to get up there as much as I used to.

I know the are you are talking, but have only picked up northerns in there. I guess I should try a little harder for the eyes in there.

Thanks

~Josh

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
