I know Buddy had one group of 9 people last weekend that left with 87 crappies and 18 walleyes. Jon has a picture of it if he posts it. Right place at the right time. I had a house 100 yards away that only got 3 crappies for 3 guys. frown.gif I see that on another forum GPS cords. have been posted for a good bite that will put you about 110 feet from another of Buddy's houses

Hi Kelly: Would you share where you found the gps coordinates? Also do you know if Buddy has stoves and ovens in his houses?

Thanks

As far as I know some have ovens but most have hot plates. As far as the cords.? No because Buddy needs time to get his house moved away from there to avoid the crowd that will form there ruining the fishing there.

Ya its to bad Buddy got zinged on that spot, he spent alot of time scouting for fish only to have it 007ed on him.

This is a pic of some of the fish and fishermen out of Hillmans road.

The GPS coordinates probably wouldn't do any good anyways. These fish seem to shift their location from day to day anyways. You may have a great bite one day and nothing the next. Throw the extra pressure into it and it speeds they'll just move further and faster. Guys like Buddy, Kelly, Pat and many others work hard scouting out new spots every day. A person needs to do their own leg work and find them. It's rare not to find at least a few if you're willing to keep moving acrossed the horizon until you find a school of slabs.

Good Luck to you when you all when you get up there.

I thought that avatar picture looked famillar.. Small world. You should do me a favor and send me a couple of those pics you took. I'm guessing they turned out great seeing as u got down and dirty when taking them. Seemed like you knew what you were doing. My email is [email protected]

Those gps cords just happened to be where Buddy's houses were. The cords were from a few years ago and given by mistake......originally they were for an area someone scouted for another guide and when they gave him the cords they gave him the wrong ones and it just so happened that hillmans houses were near the cords.....what do you do...gps cords mean squat on that lake other than reference points or spots to start a search...they could be in the area or they might not have been there for weeks (fish that is)......Good Luck..

Like spys, gathering intellegence or information by being sneaky. Red lake has agents, double agents and even listening posts. wink.giflaugh.gif

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
