The fishing has been outstanding . The weather was a little on the damp side this weeekend but it did not stop the fishermen from catching a few. Frank and his crew camping down at the lake had a massive fish fry yesterday with fresh boiled walleye yes boiled walleye with 15 guys down there they have it dialed in on how to feed such a big group. I dropped the ball last night as I’m sure they had a nother fish fry with onion rings,frys and walleye. I guess the age is catching up to me as I fell asleep. I had no one in the cabin ? I guess its going to be one of those years. The guys camping on the river also did well. Tyler put the smack down on some elusive yet still catchable crappies with a group from Kansas. They kept 30 crappies. I plan on hitting that same spot this week and see if I can not get a couple of good pics. If we get into them I plan on keeping 1 or two for supper. Next weekend were busy then I have no fishermen booked the rest of the year ouch
had Jim, Sten and Dustin up yesterday. We started off drifting jigs and proceeded to catch fish all day long. The strange part as it was 3 out of 5 were keepers. We came into westwinds harbor around 1 and had fresh walleye for lunch. The guys came back to the cabin and took a nap for a couple of hours. We then headed back out and came home with 8 more.There headed home this morning with there 4 a piece plus the four I donoted for lunch yesterday. Could not of asked for a better day and got me out of driving the tractor at the farm for the day.
The season is under way with great fishing by all that fished upper red lake.Some had trouble finding fish under 18 but all and all it was good fishing.The wind has been strange and been out of the north and east the past 4 out of 5 days.
I had the pleasure of taking my brother warren and his buddy Doug fishing. We had a grand time and as one of the old timers up here Dave told me a few years back THIS IS A GRAND LAKE A GRAND LAKE and it owes me nothing.
All the guys here went home with there limits and there were even a couple bonus crappies to boat. I did see Cole and Jeramy saturday morning .They had been up for a few days before opener and got there 20 crappies. They come up every year and fish extreamly hard for them in any weather conditions.
I have my first guide job of the season so better get ready
