Boat landings

Recommended Posts

brady_d

I've never fished Red in the summer and want to try to get up there sometime this year with our boat. I was just wondering which resort has the best boat landing or if there are any public landings? Thanks for any info

westwinds has a harbor and launch...probably the best bet otherwise the tamarac has a public landing can be tricky with the low waters.....

The DNR dredged a channel to the lake late last fall so acess is not a problem at the tamarac

I've stopped at that access in the fall while on my way to grouse hunting up in beltrami state forest, the the access is on the river...I'm just wondering because of it's location on the river if that's a safe access point in the winter?

not in the winter......there is always moving water there and there are rocks in the area that keep things warm and unstable (pretty shallow)......people have claimed they use it but for 8 bucks no thanks i will use a plowed road on ice that is a little more stable!!!

As for Channels ( Canals! what the ? crazy.gif) West Winds has a great harbor/marina with a good canal out. The mouth of the river can be good also for summertime use.

Before this last cold snap the only open water on the lake was along the shore and in front of the river. I was geting excited I would have a 50 yard hole to drive my boat around in then it refroze.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
