Hello from Red Lake! Our first guests this week are already catching several nice Walleye in the 22-26″ range on both Red Lake and Parker Lake. Also five Northern Pike between 35-42″ were caught yesterday alone. Both species are biting shallow in 5-8′ of water. We weathered a large storm last night and the lakes were very muddy today from all the runoff.
We know many of you traveling north like to stop at the Village Corner in Vermilion Bay right before turning north to Red Lake. Unfortunately the entire strip of businesses suffered a fire last fall so you’ll need to find an alternate stop. Try filling up before crossing the border or stopping in Dryden where there are several restaurants and gas stations. You can also still get gas at Bobby’s or eat at Buster’s BBQ in Vermilion Bay both of which are located a short distance west of the turn to Highway 105.
Until next time…tight lines!
