Garrison Sports sleepers

I am looking to stay there this winter. Has anyone stayed there? Their website doesn't have any pictures on it. Are their 6 separate beds in the 10x20 6 man houses or do they want you and your buddies to share 3 beds? Also how did you like your stay there?

I've stayed in them. There are two single bunks and two double bunks. If you go during his Sunday-Thurday special, you can't beat the price.

They aren't fancy, but they aren't ratty either. The mattresses were in good condition and the house was easy to keep warm, so that's what's important to me (well that and finding fish, eh?).

The one thing to be aware of is they don't have cook stoves in them. You can bring a camping stove if you want. We usually eat sandwich/chips/fruit for lunch, then go into Garrison or Twin Pines for supper (after the sundown bite subsides).

Last but certainly not least, Kerry is a GREAT GUY; it's a pleasure doing business with him.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.
