These are pictures from Saturday evening just after the storms of a pretty cool rainbow going over the top of Rocky Reef Resort. Sorry to say there was no gold at the end of it, only me.

Another great Memorial Weekend +Rocky Reef Resort​

What am I looking at?
It was a weekend on the water that I will not soon forget at +Rocky Reef Resort. I don’t know what I was thinking when we entered the MTT tourney, this weekend. I thought it would be fun to compete again after a 2-year break from it. Well Let me tell you a great story from the weekend. It all started off just fine when I saw for the first time in my life, an albino deer rite away on Saturday morning.

I did make sure to post it for ya. I thought that it was going to be a great Omen for the day. That was not to be, at least for us. We took off from the launch site at Hunters Point and started to head 8 miles out into the lake and do some mud fishing, seeing how we were never going to make the 12-mile run down to our rocks on the south end, that was not going to happen in that wind.

Anyone who has fished this lake for very long knows, when the winds blow, to the rock we will go. As we went further and further, the wind waves made my life hell for the next 8 hrs. Don’t get me wrong, I love to fish in just about any conditions, but when Mother Nature unleashes her fury, it is going to be a long ruff day in the boat for me. It was just that, I must give huge coo does to my partner and pilot Jordy, for doing an awesome job in his new Lund, trying to keep us on fish all day long. I hated when I could hear the waves coming and every 7th wave was truly over 6 ft. So, I would just brace myself for the roaring thunder of water that was going to hit the boat.

It was also raining sideways all day and then we had over and hour of sleet and freezing rain. So, it wasn’t enough that you were trying to do your best to feel the bottom, you had to stay aware at all times, for the rouge 7f waves that would sneak in on ya. There have only been a few times in my life when I had any fear of the water, this was one of them. It would usually take us 15 minutes from just about anywhere on the lake. Not to be on Saturday, we left an hour early to make sure we would make it back in time for the weigh-in. It took us over 50 minutes and just 8 miles to get to Hunters point.

That was when I feared the water the most, it is one thing to go with the wind and waves, but totally another, when you are going against 35 mph winds and 4 to 6 ft. waves, for 8 miles. As we would try to tac back and forth just to gain some ground, the wind and waves wanted to tip from side to side, not to mention the thrust of 4 to 6 ft. waves that wanted to sink you. We did sink the back of the boat and over the engine cowling a couple times coming off some of those huge waves., we did make it in safely though. We did weigh in 27.65 on Saturday for 16th place, which wasn’t enough to win, it took 35 lbs. to win this one. There were 2 local boys that put on a true clinic out there, with a 7lb average on their 35lb weight.

There were 7 teams that weighed over 30 lb. in one day, that is unheard of on Mille Lacs Lake. I can remember years in these tourneys that it took 2 days just to weigh 21 lbs., so what the hell does that tell ya. That the DNR are so far off on the population of walleye that we have and it just going to get worse when we run out of feed for all of those big fish. Sunday was a much better day but there was still rain and 15 to 20 mph winds, which I can handle, we weighed 21.75 for 27th place on Sunday, but the team that won day 1 were able to almost duplicate there Saturday weight with 34.24. that is just crazy weight for one day on Mille Lacs. And there were 6 teams that had 30 lbs. or more, outstanding Man! That’s ok, we are still working towards the championship in the fall and have a couple more shots at winning a couple of these things this year.

With all that being said, business has sucked for the past 2 weekends with no cabin or R.V. rentals, and no people up in the area. We did a lot of upgrades to the mobile home and the cabins this year, you will have to come and check it out, we worked hard on them this spring and can’t wait to see how you all like it. We will be doing our thing here at The Rock, so have no fear, we will always be here. This weekend will be our opener I guess, it is no surprise nor has it been for the past 3 openers, we will just do what we do and wait for things to loosen up this summer. To wrap this up, the bite is really good whether you like the mud flats or the rocks, there are fish everywhere. Have no fear that you will miss out on the bite, it is just starting to heat up, so you get up and catch some of them yourselves.

Rockman’s Report
5/15/17
It was a less than a Steller weekend at the Rock for the 2017 Walleye opener. Traffic was at a minimum and the boats on the water was very minimal also. We knew that it would be like this when they came out with the new regs, but that did not stop us from celebrating our 27th opener on Mille Lacs. We did as we have always done and greeted everyone who showed up and were able to sit and shoot the sh*t with everyone for once. From what I have heard from around the lake on how the bite was, is that the morning bite was pretty good, the afternoon bite was tougher, but there were fish out on the mud flats already. The shallow water from 11 to 17 ft. The night bite was a whole different story, I went out for 1 hr. with my grandson Treven, and we boated 17 fish, most of which were over 24 inches and we went through all 3 dozen leeches by 10:30 and had to come in. So, I would have to say that the bite is good in the mornings and off the hook at dark. I will be out on the water from Wed to Friday pre fishing for an MTT Tournament on Saturday and Sunday, so I will have a better idea on where everything is at by then. I know that the Smallies were biting really good of the reefs during the day, there were 3 bass guys on it most of the day. That is about it for now at Rock Central. I will keep you updated on the fishing throughout the week.
Be safe
We will see ya
When we see ya
