Outdoor Authority Houses

5 posts in this topic

Going to be taking my first trip up to Upper Red Lake in a couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone can tell me about Outdoor Authority and their service? Friends have used them but this will be my first trip. Curious if anyone else has used them this year and if they are catching any walleyes? Thank and good luck fishing boys!!

My father in law and some of his freinds are going to be up with me and some freinds the weekend of the 10-13 and they are staying in one of theirs also. I would also appreciate the info. They seem great over the phone!! I also heard from another guy that they had a great time with them. I guess they stay out on the ice in their own house. Could come in handy.

I stayed in their log cabin house last year, it's a great house, except for the fact they told me it could house 7 guys, and it does not,although they did let us rent another house cheap to make up for it. Also there is no stove or oven in it.

You have to pay a road fee at rogers to get out, that is not included in thier price nor do they tell you about ahead of time. Not a big deal I just thought it was a weird way of doing buisness.

They're both really nice guys but one is at home running the books and one is out on the ice running the rentals and I am not sure how much they communicate.

Those were the issues we had, none of it was a big deal and we had a good trip. Would caught a lot of walleyes but not a crappie in sight. I would rent from them again, mostly because of the guy that runs the rentals out on the lake (I forgot his name), he does a good job.

I think it was 3 years ago when we tried them. It sounds like they have that problem of telling you a house can sleep a certain number and then not delivering because it happened to us as well. They had a camper converted to a house they said could sleep 6, and was more like 4 1/2. (Don't ask about the 1/2) Luckily, we brought up our own ice castle and a cot as well, which saved us. We caught fish, but since I have been going with Raveling outdoors.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
