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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
