JR's corner access

Recommended Posts

TheWalleyeSlayer

Coming up to URL in a few weeks with 3 buddies who rented a fishhouse from JR's corner access. I view the forum alot and have not really heard any info of JR's. Does anyone have any history or know of his outfit? Wondering what part of the lake they go out of, what type of houses etc. I have been coming to URL for the past 6 seasons and always enjoy, I also plan to bring the portable to do some runnin' and gunnin'. Thanks in advance for any info!!!!!!!!!

I fished out of J.R.'a a few times last year. It is nice when there is a lot of snow and or slush to get as far west as you can by road. This has not been an issuse this year yet. Near the "Rez Line" last year is where I had my best luck with the crappie. Last weekend is went out of J.R.'s and caught a few walleyes. They have a really nice bridge....they could use more reflectors on their road.....especially beyond the bride. I have no idea what the houses are like. I have never talked to anybody there...just dropped my cash in the box.

We have been going out of JR's and have done fairly well. We caught between 20-35 walleyes each time. Haven't fished deep enough to have a chance at the crappies, about 10 1/2 feet. I haven't stayed in his houses either. Good Luck

WalleyeSlayer,

What house of Jr's are you staying in? They are all good houses, and he keeps them on fish.

Give me a call

I finally got to give Red lake a third try, showed up just after dark at Morts landing went out to the end of his road and set up for the night, ended up catching just a few walleyes, non in the slot. The next day we talked to a couple that had done fairly well at JR’s and thought hat we would give that a try. Drilled quite a few more holes but could only muster up a few more walleyes. Saturday afternoon went over to Hillmans and ran into some really friendly folks who said they could put us on crappies. Finally I find out what this crappie thing is all about ended up catching two 14 inch plus crappie along with a whole boat load of walleye. Looks like I will be coming back agin next week if it does not get too cold.

      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.

      After a week of terrible weather the comeback doesnt take very long this time of the year on our favorite lake. Check this new video   https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=714645218901998&id=770784022996799
