Cabin Rental for Spring

Recommended Posts

perchking

I might be jumping the gun a bit but if I dont get this done now or my wife will kill me. For the past 5 years we have fished Mille Lacs (South end) around the Isle area Memorial Day Weekend. We usually tent a Father Henninepen State park and have a great time and AWALYS catch quality eyes. Well next memorial day will be a bit differend being I have a 8 week old daughter. My wife told me she will not come this year unless we get a cabin. I really enjoy our tradition of doing this so I am on the hunt for a cabin. Oh one other note I have 2 fishing partners a Chocolate and a Golden that are attached to my hip. They are great dogs that are 5.5 years old and very well trained. So what I am asking for is if anyone know of anybody who rents cabins preferabaly on the south end but I will take one anywhere. I guess I am looking in to a 1-2 bedroom that allows pets.

I HAVE MY CREDIT CARD READY if anyone know of a place.

Thanks in advance.

Does it have to be on Memorial Day weekend? And many days are you looking for. I have a cabin on Big Point (Right on the point You can sit on the deck and watch the boats stack up right out front) that I might be willing to rent. I use it over Memorial weekend because my boys get that day off of school. If I told them they wern't going fishing because I rented out they would have my hide.

Holy Mack,

Yeah it has been a tradition for us for the past 5 years, we leave Friday about 10am get to the Big Pond about 2pm, the wife starts drinking Hot Choco, I grab a 12 pack of Bud grab the dogs and hit the lake until dark. I do that until Sunday Monring we head home and I start the garden. Thanks for the offer but if you know of anybody else post their info and I will contact them ASAP.

Thanks again,

Greg

Holy Mack,

Plans just changed and we are coming up the weekend BEFORE Memorial Day, I was just wondering if you rented out your cabin yet? I will be coming up May 18th around 5pm and would be leaveing the 20th which is a Sunday Mid Morning...

If any body else knows of a rental it would be great appreciated if you could pass on some info. I really want a place that is on the lake and somewhere on the South Side...

Thanks,

I HAVE MY CC READY...

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
