Sleepers on Upper Red

Recommended Posts

ctuma

Does anyone know of a good place to rent sleeper houses from. I'm looking at a trip the first week in Jan. and have never been up there before. Looking for place that will put us on fish and move us if were are not catching them. Also does anyone know if Hudec's is still in business. I called their number and it was disconnected.

I just made a reservation at Hillman's for a 6-person sleeper. They said every weekend in Jan. still had availability for that size house. Not sure about the smaller houses though. It's our first trip up there too, so don't know what to expect.

Expect walleyes, and a lot of them, with the occasional crappie, perch, and monster nothern. Every time I have ever been to Red I go out of Hillmans road. I have yet to have a "bad" day of fishing.

Last year I stayed with Raveling outdoors 3 times and had a great time. Just short of limits of crappies all 3 times (3 guys)and many walters. I already have a triped booked for the first weekend in January and I'm taking the girlfriend up. They have nice houses and are clean and they will take care of you. They are a sponsor. and the link is at the top of the page.

We've gone out of Hillman's for several years now and have had pretty good success. A couple of years ago you couldn't keep a crappie off of your line, and then we've switched to catching a bunch of nice 'eyes. Then you throw in a monster northern just to keep you on your toes. Check with Buddy at Hillman's and he will set you up and keep you moving if things are not going well. We've fished out of his sleepers, but have never spent the night in them. They are pretty good as far as that goes. Good luck!!!

Try Chad Benson also, just google "Chads Guide Service". I have fished out of his sleepers in the past and he will work to find you fish. He's also a sponsor of the site.

I would strongly reccommend Waskish Minnow Station. Kelly, Jon and Patsy will do their best to put you on fish and make sure you enjoy your trip. They also have nice clean and comfortable houses.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
