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!

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
