metro area day house rentals?

8 posts in this topic

I took my daughter to Waconia last year, and she had an absolute blast catching stunted pannies out of a rental house. However, the drive from Coon Rapids to Waconia it just too long for me. Are there any other places, preferably closer to the NW metro, where I can rent a house for a day? She's still too young (in my opinion) to go out in the portable yet (she's only 5), but has been begging me to take her out again.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

I think Waconia is probably your only choice unfortunately. I think the guys who used to run "Pike Dreams" at the old Minnetonka Outdoors had daily rentals. But I haven't heard much about them since the place closed down.

If I were you, I'd look at a little farther drive for a 12-hour during the week rental at the big pond ol' Mille Lacs. It's been slow there for me this year but you could still tie into a jumbo or two.

Coon Rapids. Think Chisago chain. Post question on the East Central Forum.

The South shore of Mille Lacs is probably a quicker trip for you than Waconia.. There may not be as much action though. No sunnies..

I can rent you mine on Centerville lake.

I will take a case of bottled beer for the rent or $20.00.(Don't worry I'm 46 yrs old)

If you want me to supply the propane and heater(All you need is a sunflower to heat it) it would be an additional $10.00 for the cost of the propane. Or you can buy the propane yourself.

It's 8ft by 10ft. Ventilated, 6 holes.

Sunfish and crappie spot. Occasional northern.

PM me if interested.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
