Silverlake I sure do not remember anything like that happening? What house were you in? I have on occasion had to re drill a hole or two but you make it sound like I was no where to be found and you could not fish?

I was up with cookie earlier this before christmas. All i can say he is a great guy. He checked up on us periodocally though out hte day, and definetly had us on the fish. The house was awesome, it was cold and windy out but we were warm and well taken care of. Silver lake what do you mean the holes froze over? Were you fishing or just watching the ice form on them? I would rate cookie as a A+ he even hung out in the evening and chatted with us and had a pepsi. Nooner

Maybe you're supposed to have ESP and know he needed his holes re-drilled, I guess.

We fished out of a 8x16 brown wheeled house. The holes froze shut within three hours of drilling them and could not just use on ice dipper to clean them out. I was not bashing cookie, just letting you know the experience we had, being someone wanted the honest truth. In Cookies defense, I believe the house was not one of his regular houses.

Cookie is a top notch person, I have stayed with him before and he made my first trip to Red Lake a memory I will not forget. He had a beer in the fridge for you and the house was warm and cozy. He checked on us all the time and made sure we were on fish. We are headed up there again to stay in one of his big houses. I can't wait to get up and catch some walleyes because I know Cookie will put us on them.

I was up for xmas with the family and watched cookie run like crazy getting things ready for his customers. From plowing the road to getting houses out and heated! The kids and I used one of cookies older houses and even that was pretty nice! About 3 hrs of fishing we got 5 legal eyes! Overall he goes out of his way for his customers! smile.gif

I'm another satisfied customer, a friend and I stayed at his cabin a few weeks ago, we had a great time. We had portables but he let us use a hard house one night, (we basically played cribbage) but woke up twice by the rattle reels, 2 very nice slot fish.

Thanks Cookie!

I now remember that house and it was a borrowed house that turned into a nightmare? Never install a heater with a blower with out away to charge the battiers.Plus banking the house was another nightmare you could not get snow behind the tires. I did finaly start blocking them off with some plywood then snow. Glad I do not have that house again this year

I personally have never stayed in one of Cookies sleepers, but have heard nothing but really good things from people who have. I did get a chance to meet him this summer at hillmans and he was kind enough to give us some great tips for some monster pike and some walleye spots. I am positive you cannot go wrong with him.

Cookie, this is Ku-Ku, I dont know if you remember me, but all I gotta say is COOKIE is a top notch guy. I rented a house from him last year and even though the high temps that weekend average -15-20 and night temps in the -30's he still came and check up on us all the time to see if we were okay. He knows how to run his operation. Cookie I am going to email you soon about renting sometime in March soon. You wont be disappointed going with Cookie. wink.gif

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
