Even with the snow and rain opener was a huge success for fishermen here on upper red lake.
I hosted my brother from Chicago and friends Bob and Luke. We had a blast even though we got cold and wet. Our goal was to get just enough fish for a fish fry at westwind resort and get out of the snow and rain. We managed to get 6 fish under 17 inches between 11am and 1pm while releasing another dozen or so that were to big.
Our plan sunday was to have a solid breakfast and spend most of the day fishing for limits for the guys to take home to there families we hit the lake around 10 am. The first area we tried was quite aways away from the river and was a little slow. The second spot we fished was a little better but not what we were looking for. The third area we fished was the honey hole and it was the best fishing my brother has ever experienced fishing upper red lake. We anchored and tossed jigs tipped with minnows and caught well over 50 fish in less then two hours with 12 keepers in the live well. After coming in and cleaning there fish we had a early supper and headed back out to see if the water warmed enough to bring the crappies back in shallows. After trying two spots that have produced with no crappies we went out a little deeper and spanked the walleye throwing crank baits. What a blast that was. Every cast one of us in the boat would have a fish on.

With a full house this weekend the fishing has still been nothing short of spectacular. Frank,Turk and one of the other guys caught over 150 walleyes on friday. The winds kept most in the tamarac river yesterday and the fishing was excellent. I took Lindsey and Brian on the lake in the morning before it got to windy and we caught fish with in minutes of anchoring wave action was to much for Lindsey and we spent a couple hours catching fish in the river before parking the boat for the day.

We took Bob and Ed out for a day of fishing yesterday. Again the fishing is stilll good here with numerous walleyes caught and released. We also targeted crappies midday and were rewarded with 10. All in all a great day of fishing with well over 60 fish caught if not more. i will be twisting the wifes arm everynight this weekend to go fishing as the crappie bite is starting to really pick up.We still have a cabin open next weekend The 30th.

Wild Bill and his crew were up from thursday until sunday morning. They ended up with only 10 slabs. By the third day they were sick of catching walleyes and threw in the towel chasing crappies as they could not keep the walleyes off there hooks. We went out sunday eve. After the front blew through looking for crappies. We ended up with one crappie a half dozen walleye and lost track of all the sheephead.
I have a couple of guys coming thursday for a day of fishing so I will be hitting the lake the next day or two doing a little pre fishing.

I had Jim ,Dusty and Sten up last thursday for a day of fishing. we were able to get them 8 keepers to take home and lost track of how many fish we caught. We also trolled for pike for a bit but the wind was not in our favor. Thad and Dj headed home this morning and pounded the fish yesterday. Thad said it did not matter how you fished for them and they had atleast 10 doubles with there biggest walleye just over 22 inches. The guys in the blue cabin have aslo had some good fishing with Laura landing a 37 inch pike yesterday.Jonh and Tyler fished for pike on monday and managed two fish in the high 30s
