Foster House Part II

Recommended Posts

suick100

Just got back from another Red Lake adventure with Pat Foster at the controls. Seals everywhere but managed to dodge most of them, except this one young and sassy one who would not go back down the hole. We used the Patented Club Red Seal stick and that finally worked to get rid of him once and for all. Anyway, yes the fishing was GREAT! This time the crappies, were visiting us. Myself and two other guys ended up with 24 Slabbys, biggest one measured exactly 15 1/2 inches and the rest were your typical Red Lake 14 incher, which always amazes me, compared to any other lake, these fish are absolute monsters. We also got our limit of nice 16 inch walleyes, some perch and no big Gators. All in All another awesome trip and Foster came through once again. Thanks again for the great house and service Pat. Had one Red Lake rookie along and seeing his eyes pop when that first slabby came up his hole was priceless. I will return with my son on Presidents Day weekend and maybe my son will catch the big gator this year. Last Feb 06, I caught a 22lb. Northern within 15 minutes of arrival. The Triangle and the Seals live ON!!!!!

I know which house he hasn't moved in the last few days. cool.gif It isn't by you "huntingislife". I think you should move about 1/2 the way back towards Hillman's. Where you are at now doesn't seem to be happening yet. Usually it is late Feb. and into March before we find them there in big numbers.

I was thinking about moving this weekend. I wasn't sure if I should move that far back in or maybe just back to 6 miles.

Hi Melanie, Go ahead and put the posting on Pats Website, we had a great time up on Red Lake and always do. Except, those darn Seals continue to harass us when were reeling in the crappies, they are really a pain and Pat needs to get Bigger Seal Clubs. Anyway, my buddies took all the pictures on there digital cameras, so I will get those to you as soon as I can. I have not yet entered the digital age, still have the throw away camera. Hey Kelly, keep Foster in line until I return on Presidents Weekend. FISH ON!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jm15, We had the best luck with the glow demon hooks, green, red, and blue for the crappies. Walleyes it didn't seem to matter, I caught alot of them on a plain red hook or anything that glowed into the evening hours. Hope this helps and good luck to you. Like Kelly said, Bring lots of sweets for Foster.

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
