First Time URL Fisherman, Any Advise?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Heading up to URL the first part of January and looking to rent some sleepers for a couple of days. Problem is, there are about a million different outfitters up that way to choose from. I'm kind of curious as to which one to go with. Looking to have a good time but also catch quite a few fish. There will be four adults so I want to be sure and be in a big enough house to not be over crowded. Any advice as to which ones to check out or maybe which ones to stay away from? Thanks in advance!

I've always rented from the Minnow Station, Kelly P. (and now Jon) and have never been disapointed. Give them a try.

I cannot say enough good things about Westwinds. We are staying there over the MLK holiday. First rate place compared to most I have stayed at, but they have very few cabins.

Hey thanks for the help guys! I ended up booking here a few days ago with Mort's Dock, so hopefully we won't be disappointed. I spent hours looking up different websites on different rental spots but got a tip that these guys are pretty good. Plus, they were quite a bit less expensive than everywhere else! Hopefully URL can live up to everything I've heard!

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
