I have a sleeper booked this weekend with hillmans and was wondering if anybody had any recent fishing reports from there?

Thanks MM

Read jonny's report from 2-14 it general but he is out there every day and knows the lake better than most! Hillmans has there houses in good areas and you will do just fine!

Hey muskratman, we (myself and three others) will be out of Hillman's this weekend also. From the posts on here, I have learned to first try the sleeper and then go mobile from there if nothing happening. Hopefully Hillman's will have us on fish or be willing to guide us to an area to try with the portables. Weather looks decent for the weekend so that should not be a problem like lately. Red and blue glow seem to be the color of choice. Me, I'm gonna try the Salmo Chubby Darter (size 4) in a glow color to see how it works. Something new to play with. Our overall choice of liquid refreshment is Bicardi Gold with a splash of Pepsi. And, oh yeah, bring an extension! smile.gif

I and three others will also be going out of Hillman's this weekend. Plan on fishing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Have a 4 man sleeper rented. Plan on trying that first and then going with portables. As everyone has said, being mobile and staying away from the crowds will be my game plan. And drink of choice, Crown Royal Reserve with a splash of 7-up. Good luck this weekend.

I like your choice of drinks but I can only afford VO.

When I was up there a couple weeks ago we did alright. I think we could have done alot better but when we dropped the aqua view down the whole there was alot of trash down the holes. We identified pop cans, beer cans, water bottles, broken coffe cups, and some other things that we couldnt identify. It looked like the house wasnt move for a while and people who stayed before threw it down the hole

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
