I think Jonny-P would make it memorable for you two!

The problem is they fill so fast that getting reservations can be an issue now.

All you have to do is read some of the other posts in this forum about Kelly-P and Jonny-P and you'll find they have many happy clients. Or I could probably shut my mouth and let them recommend them to you as well.

You guys will love URL, one of my favorite places in the winter!

One could also check out Raveling Outdoors, one of the sponsors of this forum. Their ad and link is listed at the top of the page. I have heard many good things about them.

One could also call Club Red or Outdoors with Jonny P. These are a couple of great operations and they book fast.

Well.. In saying resort, do you want to find a sleeper fish house? Or do you just want to get out on the lake, and rent a cabin?

I agree with the posters and Westwind is also a good place --Kelly fills fast--and don't forget the web sites for the URL area--

      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.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
