I would second calling Chad, stayed with him this year for the first time and he was great to work with and put us on some fish.

Are the sleeper houses mostly on one side of the lake or are they spread every where? I will probably be going up for the first time in march and just wondered where most sleepers are.

Call Chad. We fished out of his houses last week and did very well. This is the second year we have rented from him. Treats his customers very well.

His houses are very nice ice pro houses. The ones we were in had 4 bunks in them and 8 holes. I think they were 8X16. He charges $100 a day

Cool. Is it $100 for the house for 4 guys, or $100 per head? Just curious. Have only heard THE BEST things about Chad's rentals.

If you search for chad and upper red lake you will see his rates. Don't think he is a sponsor so you will not find it here. Rates very, he has them posted on his web site.....best to call him as others said.

My bad, guess I didn't know he was a sponsor. He was great when we went out, he checked on us and was moving houses and keeping us on fish. I found him by doing the google search and handn't seen his information on here before. Sorry Chad!!

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
