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 agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
