Good Article...

"Residents along the shores of Upper Red Lake and Lower Red Lake prepare to celebrate the next chapter in the big lake's tale of recovery -- the return of walleye fishing."

Very good article. We're still trying to figure out here if the Red Lake re-opening will have an impact on our lake. Less fisherman here or will Red Lake still be a stop on the way.

Whenever they open a large body of water like that, it is bound to have some affect on other area lakes. Could be positive or negative. The crappies on Upper Red have been the reason people have been hitting that lake the past few years, now you got 'eyes too. We'll see how people do when the reports start rolling in.

ok.I read it and it pisses me off even more.
The white man ruined the lake,he said it was ok to net!
So the red man nets the whole lake out & the DNR (we) stock it.
Now he can take 10 , and maybe we will let you have 5 or 8 nets and a few spears and elecrical shock and dupont spinners.All for the money. Aren't the casinos bringing in enough cash?
We get 2 eyes whoopdy dupdy. With the slot everything you get goes back. As long as they can draw you to the lake they got your WHAT?
Money is what it is all about.
The crappies are slowing so they can use the walleye to give you another reason to come & fish.
I don't buy into it,but if it takes pressure off of other lakes it could be a bonus & the businesses need the fisherman to survive.

I agree with CK! For Gumbi, I talked to a few guys up on LOW this winter about that same thing. How will Red affect LOW? Well it is obvious that it will draw some anglers but who is going to want to come from out of state to only keep their two fish? I know I will stop at Red on occasions because I jsut love to catch fish no matter what I keep. Another point was made, that I completely agree with, is LOW has an outstanding night life! Name one bar out on the point that isnt packed on any given night? LOW is an outstanding fishery! This year was poor for us up there but we kept coming back time and time again, poor fishing for us but great partying!!

BSL is a great party lake & if it was not for the slab crappies I get I would not waiste my time on it,sorry BSL guys. It does have some big eyes & northerns in it ,but I fished it hard over 2 years and never saw an eye over 16". I can go to many other lakes that are closer and get stringers of 16"-18" for dinner and I'll have released several others that are larger.Some days I'll get into 40-80 walleyes. Also when I've gone to BSL on openers it was like a zoo.
I've got lakes that you might see a half a dozen boats on.By the time they get on the water our stringer is full anyway and it's time to go.

Fish on
