Sleepers on Upper Red

9 posts in this topic

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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
