Questions on Staples area

3 posts in this topic

I bought a parcel a few miles north of Staples this summer; this will be my first time hunting deer in this area. A couple of questions: Where is a good place to stop for a burger and a beverage around this area? I have noticed the places in Staples but have not had a chance to stop in yet. Also, is there any resort or anyplace around this area where a guy could take a hot shower for a few dollars? I am used to hunting by Mille Lacs lake and always took showers at a resort there. Any other tips about the area? Thanks for any help. CH

Crow Hunter,

I hunt just north of Motley, about 2 miles out of Leader. In Staples, the bar called Twisted Sisters is a good place to eat and have a beer. Also, if you don't mind a 15 or so mile drive, The Bears Den in Leader is a good place to eat and check and see how the hunters are doing in the area as well. Lots of big deer killed up there last year. The picture to the left took fifth place at the Bears Den big buck contest last fall.

Good luck hunting.

Mysterio, thanks for the info. I am not that far from Leader, my place is about a mile south of Lyons state forest. That is a great buck, congratulations. CH

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?
