Check out the sponsor's of this forum. You will find their links at the top of the page. Also, check out Hunters Point.

I would try to make the reservation quickly...resorts that can accommodate that big of a number usually fill up fast.

Hope this helps.

Myself i have stayed at many different resorts around the lake in sleepers and will be again January 14-17 allso have caught fish at all places i have stayed. Just be moible if your not seeing or catching in one area move to another.To find one that holds you all maybe hard to find but i could be wrong.You may need to rent a couple houses. I would call around see who has what to offer you and your group.Some resorts will even throw in a few drinks on the house with big groups.Just my 2 cents hope it helps. The reports have been looking good thanks guys for sharing your outings with us fellow members. cool.gif

how does someone who is renting a sleeper stay mobile. seems to defeat the purpose. call dickies portside, good people and good fishing. tell them you want a house that is on the deep side of the break. better for all day sits than fishing the top. when i rent a sleeper w/freinds we often put 1 tip-up out per person in day,and i like both my lines in the shallower water at night so i put out 2 tip-ups. i use a pager to alarm me that my tip-up goes up. this is always a blast. good luck.

I couldn't disagree more. I rent a sleeper for a base camp. It allows you to sleep on the lake and catch fish at the same time. I bring my portable up and use that to hunt around during the day and hopefully set up for the sundown bite. I think its a great one-two punch for catching fish.

What he said.

That is if ya want to put in some serious fishing .

If ya want to party or just kick back and relax (with the chance of catching some fish), then by all means stay in the hardside shack all day.

Either way is OK, it just depends on what ya want and what ya expect.

Powerstroke has the same idea as i and that would be how to do it - now you know LoL cool.gif.

walleye chaser, we like to rent top of the line houses one weekend a year. 3 of us split the bill, $350-400 each. we tend to hunker down and r&r. the tip-ups make us semi-mobile. normal weekends are spent hunting walleyes with the portable eqpt. you play your way and i'll play mine. tongue.gif

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
