I will be up on Red Lake staying in some of cookie's units from January 18-20th with a group of fishermen. I hope going a little earlier gets us ahead of the -35 temps we suffered with last year.

I hope there will be good ice early. Made 6 trips last year in our wheel house but am retired this year and plan on being there as much as I can from January - April. I have been going there regularylysince "98" and even though the bite is not like it was It is still awesome to see a 14" crappie coming up through the hole - the heck with rough fish (walleye). We started with portables and now wheel houses. Once you go up there you are hooked for life. Now that the crappie fishing is on the downturn it still doesn't diminish the lure of the lake. I don't know what it is about the Red Lake Mystique but it grabs hold of you like no other lake. Maybe all the local lore like Cookie, Kelly P., Pete Olson, Buddy, Shorty, Jigglestick, Codeman, Russ and Judy, Ninetoes, Labs4me, Putz, the gambler and all of the Ibots made this an experience that will never be repeated in my opinion. Here's to everyone and may you be respectful of others and stay a good distance from those trying to make a living up there and have a good time.

I am glad to hear that I am not the only one that got hooked on the lake. I have been going up for several years now, once in the winter and once during the summer and just love the area. Fishing can stink and I still enjoy my time out on the water there. As for calling walleye "rough" fish, I enjoy the variety of catch on the lake. See you out there someday, Shaky legs 2!
