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!

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.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
