Update on Hudec's Resort (northeast shore of Red Lake)

Recommended Posts

deja vu

Hudec’s Resort is open, although it may not currently offer a complete line of resort services. Don Hudec and family are still maintaining and operating the motel cabins, the camp sites and the boat launching ramp into the resort’s boat harbor.

My dog and I pitched my tent on a prime lakeshore campsite this past weekend. I launched my small boat in the boat harbor, and tied it up a few feet from my tent.

The formerly deep channel from the boat harbor to the lake has filled in substantially with sand. In some places the channel water depth in the lake shallows area is around 6” deep… a really big boat and motor will move some sand getting out onto the lake and returning to the boat harbor.

There were several fishing parties staying in the cabins who were fishing out of medium-size boats with outboard motors hydraulically adjustable for shallow running. I was using a small trolling motor. None of us had any trouble getting from the harbor to the lake and back again…

One of the better fishing areas this time of year is straight out from Hudec’s boat harbor channel. Many of the boats launched at resorts on the south and east shores of the lake, and at the public launch sites on the Tamarac River, were trolling, drifting or anchored in a long line extending in both directions along the 6 foot water depth line.

If you’re looking for a premium lakeside tent campsite, or a premium lakeside RV campsite that may not have electricity continuously… a quarter mile from where you’ll probably be fishing… you should stop in and talk with Don Hudec or his family the next time you’re in the area. I don’t know that there’s a phone number… best to visit and talk directly with the Hudecs.

Sunday of the opener I pulled in there, Was looking to launch my boat. The Public acess' were full. When I got to Hudec's I thought the place was closed. So I ended up going down to WestWind to launch.

There were people camping there, but it just didn't have the we're open feeling.

I have gone out thru Hudec's a handfull of times during the Ice season. The people The Hudec's had always been extremely accomidating. Opener weekend had me wondering if the establishment was still operational. Glad to hear they are offering campsites.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
