Our experience was ok, it was a cold weekend, but we had a great time, even though the holes within the house froze shut and they was no one there to redrill them for us. crazy.gif

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

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
