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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
