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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
