You cant go wrong renting from The Waskish Minnow Station. Contact Kelly-P or Jonny-P and they will hook you up. Let us know how you do. Good luck.

Hamre my dad (mike) and I were fortunate to hunt your property (pheasant hunting about 5 years ago) "I would not mind paying it forward" this winter on Red Lake. Chris Johnson Let me know at kabekonadockyard@yahoo.com

I'd recommend Club Red or Agassiz. We've been up there every Jan. & March for the last 6 years and have stayed at a lot of different places. Outta my experience those two I'd recommend. Rates and quality/location of shacks were satisfactory. Never stayed outta JP either but have heard that's really good one too.

With Carrigan and Totz?

************

Can't go wrong with either Mille Lacs or Red. Red's a more exotic location for most, if your closer to the MN river then ML can be a day trip some other weekend. Do URL.

I'd suggest Chad Benson or Agassiz Fishhouse rentals. Been going up there for years and haven't been wronged by either. Good luck

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
