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

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
