Daughter's looking for a slab crappie.


Fish'n addict

Recommended Posts

I've been fish'n Winnie all winter but, my fishing partner wants to try Red lake this weekend. She,s yet to catch a slab crappie. I've got a 8x16 on wheels. I'm not looking to be a pig but a couple slabs would be nice. I've been to Red 4 times last year 1 time from Rogers and the others from West winds. It's tough to be really mobile with such a big house. So I don't plan on moveing around much. I would appreciate any advice on resorts to use and how far off shore. Thanks for any help. smirk.gif

Thanks for the report. I have a few more questions. I've never been out of hillmans I'm assumeing it's just north of west winds on 72. Is it marked with a sign? and can a guy go out threw there after dark? It will most likely be 9-10 pm friday night when I'll be getting up there. Better yet anyone have a phone number to hillmans so I can call. Thanks again. Oh by the way just tell the wife fishing is good marriage therpy after a good fishing trip it keeps you comming home for more. Thanks Again and good luck with this weekend. grin.gif

Hillman's store # is 218-647-8504. If you get there late and no one is around pay your road fee the next time you go to shore. Hillman's still operates with the feeling that most fishermen are honest.

There was a Jeep or something like that parking at 8:30 pm where you pay to get on Hillmans road, that was on Saturday.. could be why? I dont know. confused.gif

Thanks, Kelly P for the phone # I called up there and they said it would be ok to go out and come in Sat morning and pay. It sounds like hillmans is the road to go out on for the best chance to get fish. Thanks for everyone's help I'll write back next week with a report.

Thanks for everyone's help. Made it out on Friday night -24 below and windy. Stayed away from the crowds. Closest fish house 1/2 mile away. Crowed aprox 1 mile. My daughter caught 2 crappies at 9:00 am Saturday. lots of walleyes of course few keeper perch. Went to Winnie early sunday left the lake with 2 crappies and a girl with a big smile. Winnie produced 1 limit of 9-10 inch perch from 1pm -4pm.It was a great trip over all. Back to Winnie next weekend for the last run on walleyes there picking them up on the top of the breaks in about 20-25 feet at dusk untill 2-3 hours into the night. Thanks again for the help and good luck on the ice.

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
