Walleye Wacker

Jan 2- 5 and I can't wait

13 posts in this topic

We are coming up on 1/2-1/5 staying at Schuster's for the 1st time. We always have gone with Sportsman's in the past but have not had much luck through the ice the last few trips with them.

Anyone have any luck with them in the past?

For sure! We went out of Shusters 2 years ago, and we would get a mixed bad , Saugets Eyes, Pout and Tulibees. We limited out each day we were there, adding a few monster perch to the mix. Mostly using horizontal red and green glow on the dead stick, and buckshot and AE on the Jig stick.

Have FUN!!

Walleye Wacker,

We are going to be going out of Sportsmen's this year for the first time. Have gone with another outfit the last couple years but couldn't get in with them this year because they were full. We will be staying in a sleeper in early January. Did you stay in a sleeper or day shack and cabin? Please let me know what you thought of the accomodations and fishing. How many people did you have in your group? I know you can't or shouldn't give any bad reports but just wondering what you thought and how you did fishing. From what I've heard in the past they are really good and when talking to them on the phone they sound really knowledgable and willing to help keep you on fish.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Plev,

We usually go w/ 4 guys and in the past had great luck with Sportsman's. The last couple of trips we didn't do so well and thought we would give another resort a try. Sportsman's guides and accomodations were alway great. Food was good too!

This is my first post but i have been an avid reader on this site. This year will be the 5 year my buddies and I have come up to LOTW. We have stayed at Schusters 4 out of the 5 years and have had very good experiences there. We tried out Wigwam one year and when it came down to it Schusters was a much better experience all around. We have always caught a decent amount of fish. This year there are 8 of us coming up on the 5th through the 9th. Good luck!

Walleye Wacker I am also staying with the same group as rafter and we he been going to Schusters on this same trip for 8 years. Even if the fishing isn't great the people at Schusters always make it enjoyable and try to find the fish for you. Also watch out for Rafter he likes to disappear when it's his turn to buy a round at the lodge.

Poupy,

I thought that might be you when I saw your name and checked your profile. You're just jealous because I can shake dice better than you! grin.gif I probably just jinxed myself and will be buying all nite. I'll give SP 139 the message that you & Doug will be leaving early - I think he was planning on meeting you in Mankato. How early are you leaving? Maybe I'll go with. Later.

Hey Rafter... or should I say CircleJ? You should come with us to Red on Monday. Poupy staying on my couch Sunday Night. We'll wait until 8 or so if you can make it.

Poupy is a little slow today. Too many B Lemons last night. Anyway... second Poupy's comments regarding Schuster's. Always first class...

CU Guys on Monday @ Schuster's w/Bucket O' Crappies!

Walleye Wacker,

It was nice to meet you. Our group (15) ended up with enough fish for two meals and we brought some home so we can't complain. Largest walleye was 18". Caught some perch, quite a few pout, and some tulibees.

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?

      Public water is the Surface of the Water, not the land beneath it.  So even if you can access the river through an easement the actual land that youre standing on could be private property. Everything on the DNR Website says "Surface of Water" in the trespassing section.  I agree this is unfortunate,  but as usual, the 3 drunk morons that don't care ruin it for the 1000 that do..... standard procedure these days.  1 idiot doesn't clean his boat, and wrecks a lake for thousands of people.
