I guess we aren't really sure about where we want to fish, but Gull, Round or maybe Pelican would be ok I guess. I was just more curious if there were any people around that rented sleeper houses. I usually plan a trip for the 2nd week in January for myself and 3 other guys. We have gone to Red, Mille Lacs, Cass, Lake of the Woods, etc. in the past and would like to try something different. The kind of fish isn't important to us. We like catching crappies, walleyes, Northerns, Perch, whatever. We rarely keep any fish, maybe a meal. It is just fun getting together on the ice with some old friends.

Hi walleyes, Give us call at the bait shop. A couple of our fishing guides rent out some fish houses. We can put you in contact with them. They offer a great service and I know they work hard to keep folks on top of the best bite going. Our number is 218-963-2401.

I know this is a late post, but I have been away from reading the Forum few weeks and was just reviewing posts. If you wish to catch walleyes at night, in a comfortable house, in an area that has FISH, then you can do no better than WalleyeDan. I fish in my father's house on another lake(not a sleeper) each winter for 2 weeks(every day dawn to dusk) or more on annual trip to Brainerd--just to fish. For 3 years I have always rented Dan's houses when I wanted a sleeper. His service is top notch. He has a real fan in my 11 year old Granddaughter who has a WalleyeDan patch prominently posted in her room in Carson City, Nevada.

Nope, I am not asked to write this--just telling about a good experience!

Hi Wahoo,

Hope all is well in Nevada. Thank you for the good words. We are making ice up here this a.m. (0 degrees at the moment) but the wind howled most of the night so I'm guessing that the big lakes are still fishable with a boat. That is if you can find a ramp, O.K. maybe we should just say it's ice season!

We will be "On the Ice" again this winter. We will have some houses (permanent, portable and most likely a Sno Bear or Sno Fox). Guiding will be the focus this winter and we are looking to reach out a little more and fish the entire area, not just the immediate Gull Lake/Nisswa area. Should be fun and it looks like it's going to fire up sooner than later. The BIG ice fishing show is this weekend in St. Paul, but after that things will start really happening. Hope you are coming up again, if so give us a ring.

Dan,

I'll be out on the 26th and fish a couple of weeks. I'll give you a call. What about the Vikes!! Will they ever get it together?

Sounds good. I'm not sure about the vikes. Wouldn't it be something if we got to play the Packers again? I don't even know if that is a possibility as far as the playoff road, but if we do get to play them I think we will win!

Talk to you later,

Walleyedan

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
