Looking for advice for wheelhouse

6 posts in this topic

Be my first trip with my new wheelhouse and would like some advice on which resort has the best roads. Don't want to cross anything dangerous first time out. I'm looking to set up for home base and pop around with the sled. Would like to catch some eyes at night in the house though. Don't need specific spots just general ice conditions and maybe parking on a good break close to shore.

Thats what I'll do. It doesn't look like a guy would have to go out to far for some action there. Thanks Bruce.

Great location on the lake and great people, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Another option is Nodak Lodge, we've been staying there and fishing out of there for years. They also have great roads and will give you maps and good advice. They are on the south side of the lake, near Bena, and have roads going to several bars and the humps. Good luck and have a great trip with your new house!

Sounds like you've got a good strategy - staying mobile throughout the day for the perch and then settle in for the late afternoon through the evening in the sleeper for the walleyes. Feel free to stop by or give us a call at 800-365-2560 for the latest reports on ice/fishing and we can also give you a map on our current road system.

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.
