upper red lake crappies

Recommended Posts

red lake is starting to pick up folks...!!!!!! lately our guides have had quite good success....considering that usually early season crappie fishing is slow....but not for us......averaging from anywhere to 10-15 crappies a trip(which we release most of them) and all being about 13-14 inches with a occasional 15 incher. which is fun as heck. and the walleyes.... wow they keep you busy!!!!!C/R... of course

good fishing.....

Mr Whatt, It's approx. a 1 hr trip from Baudette to upper red. Hudec's would be a good place to drive on, as you'll see their sign first as you approach the lake.

1 hour 15 minutes - it is a very long straight drive, I would suggest you have others with you to keep your eyes open and to watch out for deer. It is worth it in my opinion. Keep Smiling.

It is aproximatly 60-70 miles to url from Baudette. As far as resorts it depends on what you are looking for,there is a few on the east side and a few on the south.You might want to check the resort locator for more info.

I'm not sure where some of you get your numbers but, it's less than 40 miles from the intersection of Hwy 11 and Hwy 72 to Hudecks. It's a straight shot with no towns. At the posted 55 it takes less than a hour. The way most people drive, it's 35 minutes. I have done it several times.. It is worth the trip both summer and winter....Kaz

Gentlemen,
I believe from Hudecs it is less than 40 miles to Baudette. I have made many trips to LOTW in the summer and that road is boring. It may seem like 60-70 miles because it is so straight and uneventful (unless a bear or a deer jumps out in front of you). If you check the sign at Shooks, I believe it is 60 miles to Baudette from there. I usually fiqure from White Bear, 3 hours to Grand Rapids, another hour to Northome, and another hour or so to Baudette in good to excellent drivibg weather.
Catch a Big One!

From Washkish to Scheusters Resort in Baudette from Mapquest
is as follows


Maneuvers Distance Maps


1: Start out going North toward TOWNSHIP ROAD 9. 0.0 miles Map




2: Turn SHARP LEFT onto TOWNSHIP ROAD 9. 0.0 miles Map




3: Turn RIGHT onto MN-72. 40.6 miles Map




4: Stay straight to go onto MN-11/MAIN ST W. Continue to follow MN-11. 0.9 miles Map




5: Turn RIGHT onto MN-172. 10.4 miles Map




6: End at 3140 STATE HIGHWAY 172 NW BAUDETTE MN

To make it in less than an hr? I would think an hr is a better estimate.

Hey HuskersRule,

How long of a drive to URL from the cities? Can't remember the exact time but its long, probably around 5 hrs. You can do it in a day trip too, I've made many of them. The problem is you get back to the cities fairly late and tired. If you have multiple drivers, just switch off and take naps, no big deal. We used to leave about 9 or 10 in the morning, usually fishing by 3:30 or 4 pm and fished til 7:30-8pm and then started the drive back. It was always a good time.

Check the URL forum too, the best route from the cities to URL has been discussed many times in the past.

    • You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....      
    • I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.   I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.
    • A local company here, AEM mapping, has completed mapping the lower basin of lake winnipeg, from winnipeg beach across to the east side, and down to the mouth of the red river. The lower red river from Lockport to the mouth has also been mapped. The structure they found, and the detail is astounding and will be a game changer, especially for folks coming up and have a limited amount of time to fish.  The red is available through hummingbird right now, the AEM maps chips of the red and lake winnipeg are compatable with lowrance units only. A full list of compatable units can be found on their site.  Chips will be available mid December, pricing will be announced shortly.
    • I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.    
    • and lets not overlook the ever present found hound!!!!!!!!
    • Like the rolling cabinet. Looks like a nice storage area for wood chips, scrappers, tin foil and all the other gizmos needed for grilling and smoking. And gets the smoker up so you don't have to bend down to fill it. 🙂
    • My new set up. Got it mid-summer from a friend who hardly used it. So far I have done ribs, loin, crappies, and eggs. And pickles 2 times. excellent on a burger!  
    • 😩😨 i got an electric smoker FREE!!!!!!!!!! i need to get my arse to using it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ya a couple of stinkers the last two games, one thing that was nice about last year is we finally kicked the large and extended slumps, lets hope to see that again and put some points up. 
    • I bought a Charbroil electric. Really like it. I got the stand for it and put a wheel set on to roll it around. It's got a remote too so you can sit and watch the game inside and still keep an eye on heat, internal meat temp and time and make changes if needed.  I filled the wood chip holder 2 times in the 8hrs the brisket was smoking. 🙂
