Hi Kelly,

We are leaving in about 1 hour to come up and try to find some crappies. Are you plowing the roads today, or is it too windy?

Thanks

We'll be up there, in Kelly's sleepers, from Friday thru Sunday. Can't wait!

Kelly... Can you please verify our reservations with you? I think we got a 4-man and a 2-man sleeper rented from you. Wallywalleye is the guy who has been in contact with you, and who delt with you on our trip last year too.

Oh man, I am seriously getting anxious!~ laugh.gif

Kelly, I heard the DNR is considering an experimental seal harvest on URL this year? Are you the technical advisor for this or are you promoting pat for this? When does this season start? I like to make some reservations for the "hot house" for opening weekeend! I understand all you need is a hammer to remove the nails in the hole covers and then kick back and wait, they'll be popin up some time after dark.

Naw, cann't harvest the seals. Foster says they're on the endangered species list. Cann't hurt or kill them. That's why you have to use the "Seal stick" to push them back down the holes. Just have to make sure to stand on a chair so they don't bite a chunk out of your leg.

I have a Wally Friday through Sunday. Little note along side says they don't need holes, cann't fish anyway. grin.gif

Kelly, We're coming up there soon and I looked through all my fishing gear and I can't find a seal stick. shocked.gif Do you or anyone else up there sell offical Red Lake Seal sticks? I'll pay any price. I was told they look like an old hockey stick to people who don't know what they are. Is that true?? I have a Wyoming Jackalope wonker that they sold me when I was camping out there. Would that work for a seal stick?

Foster just takes a hockey stick and cuts the blade off. I've heard that a good stout broom works in a pinch. grin.gif

I knew a guy whose neighbor's cousin was fishing in a fish house on Red Lake. After consuming an adult beverage, he took a long nap on the floor. When he woke up, he was covered with large hickeys, his breath smelled like old fish, and his underwear was missing. This is positive proof that the male Red Lake Seals are dangerous, especially during the mating season. The scary thing was, that none of the guys sharing the house had heard a thing. shocked.gif

If you can mount a jack-a-lope (Jack Rabbit crossed with Deer for you not local yocals) and after stopping in WW i see it must be ok to mount a Be-er (Bear crossed with a Deer) how do you suppose a Se-er (Seal crossed with a deer) will look? Do you suppose pat would let us put a deer in the seal house for a weekend mating ritual? Could be the first cross breeding experiment on url, or not!

Good one... tongue.gif

We should be arriving somewhat early on Friday morning, so we'll prolly be there before the sleepers are ready for us. No prob, we got portables to fish out of till you're ready for us to move in for the weekend.

Thanks Kelly.

Bring your portables. This bite is so erratic that I have no idea what is happening day to day. It is usually an "outside" and light bite where 10 feet makes a world of difference. I'm wearing out the skids moving. grin.gif 3 of the houses have been moved every other day for 6 days totalling 11 miles. ISH, I'm getting too old for this. crazy.gif

Sounds good. We're lucky it's gonna be a balmy -5 for a daytime high on Friday. grin.gif With such tropical temps, who needs permanents? wink.gif

An extension is not needed. I use mine cause I drill the holes for the permanent before I place it down onto the ice.

Kelly. Are you guys having a problem with the Sidehill Gaugers down there to? They are getting out of controll here. They can only move around the sidehill one way very fast, but there are just to many of them. CAJ

I dont see the need of a extension yet, I still have not used a extension since going up there for 4 years. But I have came close, and only 1 hole I drilled that I could not get to the water.

I was up there on Saturday, a little under 2 ft of ice where I was, out of Hillmans.

Kelly. I see you have all the wild animals that are a real mistery to. I was wondering if you have the Sidehill Gaugers there. They look like they are a cross between a little Bear and a Badger. They have short legs on one side, so they can't run very fast but one way around the hills. Look out for them if they should move out of Montana. Word is that they are moving into North Dakota now, and might be in Minnesota by Fall. CAJ

Kelly...

I forgot to mention that we're hauling up a 8x16 permanent of our own. Maybe Wally told you this already, I don't know. But could you possibly clear a spot to set this boheemuth shack somewhere near your sleepers? confused.gif

If these Sidehill Gaugers only go around a hill then unless the nodakers from flatland haulem here we should be safe, that is unless they get too skinny and da wind blows em here. grin.gif

We'll figure something out but other house is not going to be real close to the sleepers. Spread out, spread out, spread out.

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it

      Del, I want to clarify my post regarding the Vermilion Club pizza. First of all, the latest online review for the Vermilion Club was July 4th, 2021. I ate there twice after that review. Both times our group ate pizza and both times the pizza was excellent. I've eaten Poor Gary's pizza for a very long time both when we visited for many years, when we lived on Birch Point, and every time we're there since we left. I could tell a Vermilion Club pizza with a blindfold on. It has a very distinct taste and smell. We absolutely love it. BUT, this time it was different. I even asked our waitress if Poor Gary's pizza had been replaced by new owners. None of our group thought the pizza was even close to what it had been. Now, I'm not knocken the Vermilion Club. I ate there way back in the late 50's when George and Dorothy Tuma owned it. They have always served great food and I have no reason to doubt that their appetizers, sandwiches, etc. are still great. Just understand that pizza and other food is made in 2 different kitchens. I don't know what changed with the pizza kitchen since last September when we were there before this latest trip but something did. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and eat there again. But next time, it'll be on wings night.

      On the south end...  Resorts are adapting to high water conditions.  Despite lots of water, the vast majority of resorts are open, charter boats are running, and summer fishing is in full swing. Most boat ramps are open including Wheeler's Point and others.  Call ahead to your favorite resort or check their Facebook page for specifics. Lots of walleyes being caught in many different locations.  Some fish are in 4-15 feet on sand capitalizing on shiner and minnow spawning.  Others are on shallow rocks eating crayfish.  Others are deeper, 25 - 33', feeding on schools of minnows and various critters coming out of the mud.     Some anglers are still jigging, but drifting with spinners with a crawler or minnow has been super effective this week.  Both methods are working.  Gold, glow, and pink have been good colors this week for jigs and spinners. Trolling crankbaits and covering water has been very effective this past week.  Shiny gold and purple are a couple of good colors.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and even an occasional muskie are being caught.   Anglers are allowed a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers on the MN side of LOW.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0" must be released.  One allowed over 28" per day.   On the Rainy River...   The river still has a lot of current.  Anglers keying in on current breaks as a rule.   A mixed bag in the river right now includes walleyes, saugers, smallmouth bass, and pike.  Sturgeon season reopens July 1st.   Current breaks off of the main channel for walleyes and saugers.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas, feeder streams and bridge embankments.   Bays have been good for pike.  Lots of big pike and even good walleye reports in bays and feeder rivers to the Rainy River.  Lots of shiners in the river. Up at the NW Angle...  Fishing continues to be very good up at the Angle.  Anglers are fishing both the U.S. side and Ontario side of the lake with good success. Flag Island flats and areas around Garden Island were just a couple of areas good this week.  Lots of walleyes with some mixed in pike.  Fish being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.   A jig and minnow and pulling crawler harnesses have been good fishing deeper structure as well.  Neck down areas, rocky points and cabbage weeds all holding fish.  There are typically some fish shallow near shore morning and evening with good numbers being caught. A mixed bag for most anglers with walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass, crappies and jumbo perch. Excellent muskie fishing with numbers of fish being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Nope, not there anymore.  Just don’t get up there enough anymore.  Sadly.   Taxes are cheap enough to not really worry about and still have it.     smurf does the pissin’.  I wouldn’t do a thing like that to good furniture. 😉

      just off to the west is a State park and a lake access is in there too..    it's called Mille Lacs Kathio State Park
