Lots of limits and big numbers are coming in, we are also starting to see some crappies. I know I have said this before, but I can’t remember the last time we had this good of a February bite. This is great for all our guests checking into our rental houses, along with all the guests in there own wheel houses. We are keeping both on a great bite about 6 to 7 miles out on our roads. We still have a couple rentals available for this weekend coming up along with the last weekend of season, don’t miss out on this great upper red lake bite. Call to get one booked 320 290 3838. For all our wheel house and portable guests this weekend just stop in the bar to get a pass and map and we will show you where the good fishing is. All our guests bringing there own houses we will have fresh plowed spots for everyone just stop in the bar, no need to call ahead. Thanks to everyone and we will see you all soon.

It is nice to have our ice houses back on a good bite. I would say the slower houses are catching 4 to 8 fish a day while the better ones are getting 10 to 25. All of the recent pictures posted on Facebook are from the last few days. All of our ice houses are high dry. There are still openings left on the weekend. Give us a call. Thanks

The move is back on... We got about 4 inches of snow with this last storm, so nothing too terribly bad. We did play it safe and pulled into 2 miles for this past weekend, and the fishing was slower. Starting tomorrow and Monday we are plowing our roads out north of center bar to get on the better bite for all our rental houses along with all the wheel houses for anyone wanting to bring up there own house. The access will be open daily along with the bar and restaurant, let us know if there is anything we can help with. If you are looking for a fish house to rent over the next couple weekends or weekdays just give us a call 320 290 3838

REDFEST 2020... Better mark your calendars for our 13th annual indoor fishing contest Saturday January 25th. Great times and great prizes, this years theme is 70s and 80s. You won’t want to miss this weekend, we will have spots plowed for everyone wanting to come up and fish just make sure to come in the bar that Saturday indoor contest starts at 1:00pm followed by Dj Kris R Schiffler
Thanks again,

Night bite has been good... Some people still struggling but fishing is still decent. Conditions on the lake continue to improve, and we have been keeping up with fresh plowed spots for all wheel houses coming up. No need to call just stop in the bar and we will get you taken care of. Our roads for the weekend are out about 4 miles with roads off that, you can get set up on. Some guys are still flooding but very very few, some quick tips. Set your house all the way down first, pull your truck away, bank the house good then drill the holes. If these instructions are followed the flooding is none or very minimal. Rental update: we have a couple houses available for the next few weekends in January please call for details. 320 290 3838
Thanks again,

Limits are still coming in. I would say h some water on the bank side but nothing bad at all. Some houses are flooding a little and some houses are not at all, the bad houses have 5 inches of water around them. If this happens just move to another fresh plowed spot we will have for you. With this wind today and cold temps coming the lake conditions should improve even more by the end of this week. We will have our center bar road open and fresh plowed spots out there for all our wheel house guests starting middle of this week.Thanks everyone and we will see you soon.
Thanks again,

Wow what a brutal storm...THE SHOW MUST GO ON. We are gonna have the access closed again today Tuesday. We got all our guests off and there was a lot of very very thankful people. Thank you everyone for being patient as we got everyone dug out. The access will open back up for sure Thursday and maybe Wednesday, we will know for sure tonight and make that post. Thanks everyone and we will see you soon.

The storm is coming... We are not saying you have to get off the lake but just make sure you have propane, gas and food to get through the storm. The plows will be out as soon as possible just gonna have to be patient till storm is over. We are expecting the snow to start this evening and go into Monday morning, travel during the storm on lake is a huge NO just stay put.

The wind is still blowing, but the plows have started, if you are on the lake please remain patient as we will keep the plows rolling all day. The access will be closed today for access as we will be working on getting all our roads back and people off. Thank you for understanding and being patient.

update the report in the next few days .

Take Care!
