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

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk
      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun 
    • Rick
      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.
    • IceHawk
      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
