Walleye #1

Suggestion??

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up to URL the weekend of Feb. 9th. Any suggestions for resorts that we can head out onto the lake from, get some quality fishing info and reports, bait, directions, etc.??

Also how is the travel once you get off of the main roads of the lake?

I'd go out of Hillmans. Buddy always has the latest and greatest report and they will let you know what is/isnt working.

We were out of West Wind Resort last weekend and did about the same on Walleye numbers but there were only 3 of us so about 15 a piece over 2 1/2 days. We stayed in the highway cabin overnights and had a very nice, very clean house, but they provided no support. We asked for the holes to be cleaned out on Sunday as the edges were sharp after freezing over at night. The guy looked at them and said they were fine, but again we asked and he declined. We normally would have left them a $50.00 tip especially with how clean the house was but the attitude left them zero. Otherwise very impressed with West Winds. We already made our reservation there for next years. MLK weekend. Even though we were 8 1/2 miles straight out we still were only in 10 FOW. All walleyes were between 15 1/2 to 20 inches. No small ones and no large ones. We also caught no perch, no crappie and no northerns. They have a bait/tackle store on-site and one of the nicest heated fishing cleaning rooms I have found.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
