Fishing on the east side of Upper Red Lake is still going strong. With 14- 15 inches of ice and fishing in 8-10 fow. The noise of wheelers, vehicles, and other fisherman has limited some anglers success in some locations. Red glow flyers and pink and gold demons are triggering some fish. Deadsticks with horizontal presentations outperforms jigging at times, and when they are aggressive they bite almost anything. Christmas with family then back to ice. Call about our half price special for news years eve. Have a house left and want to get somebody fishing and have a great time ringing in the new year.

Jeff and Lisa stayed in florida with there two girls Llee and Libby. They fell in love with the top bunk and never wet a line as they had there own little fort up theer .Lisa and Jeff managed to get a few and have a fresh wallleye. Jeff had a couple of friends on the lake and it sounded like they reallly stuggled each onlt getting one keeper.
Tommorow it gets real busy and the auger is going to get a good morning work out. All four house are full the next couple of days. Lets hope the fish cooperate.
Talked to Buddy Hillmen today. He said there doing real well out there. Jimmy's brother got a 40 inch pike when I pulled up with Jimmy's house. I pulled it from my shore over to beacon harbor. Things went real smooth so that was sweet. California is on the north shore and it will be fun to fish such a new area. I had hoped to fish it when I got there but the bolt to my auger vibrated out and the head fell off the truck. It damaged the gas cap. I could of jerry rigged it but I caught a couple of fish there two days ago so I know its a fishy area.

Well with only four houses this year it was nice to see all four with some fish. Mike and Verna had 4 keepers in Florida. Richard and his crew had a couple in Montana and a small pike Pat, Ryan and Pat's son Shawn had two keepers. Pat has been a great customer over the years. He has even tried two other outfits that I know of but still comes back to old minnesota. I told Pat they needed to be jigging a bit more as they had set lines down as they played cribbage. Joe and his crew fished california for the day and were gone before I got there. They did have a keeper before I left so that was encuraging. While I was there just as it was getting dark I dropped a line and banged out 3 fish in less then 5 minutes. Keith had given me two fish so I was hoping for two more. After the first one all I needed was one when I had a keeper on my rod and reel. As I was trying to get the hook out the rattle wheel went off and just like that I was over my limit. The one on the rattle wheel went right back down the hole evn though it was a fat 16 I had no choice. I guess it was a nice choice to have.
Getting all the houses ready yesterday morning was a adventure. When I arrived at montana it looked like every piece of snow to the south west had drifted around the house and I had no choice but to move all the snow before I augerd out the holes.
When I got to florida it was just the opposite and there was not a stich of snow within 100 yeards of the house. Minnesota the darnn heater had gone out .We put a new controll valve on it at the tune of 350.00 so I was alittle bummed but the gas man will get it dialed in.
When Joe and his crew arrived I escourtted them to california and all my fishermen were here for the night. Today we have another crew coming for florida,and california

Its been a few years since I have been able to get my house's up towards the north shore. After some scoutting I found a area I liked and hauled california up there. Yesterday old minnesota made the trip. Florida and montana will follow with my new house arizona to bring up the rear.
Last night when I made the rounds Pat and Ryan were way happy with the move.
Jeff and Penny were also having some good fishing and as I visited I even landed a couple of fish on Jeff's rod and reel.



Penny with two keepers.
Florida and montana were not doing all that well. I feel so bad when that happens but theres not much I can do.
Both houses had deccent fishing the night before but nothing to brag about.

The whole fleet is now on the north shore. Montana and florida each managed 3 keepers and were moved yesterday. Blake, Barb and the kids were having a hoot in florida last night and had 14 laying on the ice. Montana 150 feet away was stuggling to catch a walleye.
I took the grandkids out to minnesota for less then two hours and we missed more thn we caught.



Theres plenty of space out there to fish that for sure'



The new house was catching fish yesterday but they had a pretty good buzz last night and it had slowed a bit.
Minnesota was a no show so we will be using her for the weekend.
Now that I'm all caught up I will be fishing on and off all weekend looking for good areas to move the fleet'
Arizona is a 5 man sleeper, It's on loan so I will not be adding alot of ammeneties at this time.
were pretty busy this week but the weeknd of the 6th is kinda bleek at this time
