Best sleeper house

Recommended Posts

wallyeye

I am looking at booking a trip up to Red this Feb. and I was wondering if anyone can tell me from experience what resorts have a good history of keeping their sleeper houses on the fish. I know that staying on fish with a large house can be difficult and I'm not looking for miracles just a good track record. This will be the first time up there for me so any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Guy

Kelly P at Waskish Minnow Station will keep you on fish. I highly recommend

Hillman's, Westwind, or Waskish Minnow Station. If you are in it for the fish, they are the right choices.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations. I figured I better get a reservation made while there are plenty of openings. Anyone have any suggestions on the best time of the season to go?

First or last ice for crappies. But with Red anytime is a good time with huge pike, eater walleyes, and huge crappies.

If you want to chase crappies, bring a portable and a good drill with an extension(hopefully). Otherwise, sitting in the sack with a flasher will catch you fish.

It varies from year to year but generally the later in the winter the better. Last year the bite started in January and was good until the ice went out. I do concur with those names so far. Pat Foster also does a nice job.

I highly recommend Kelly P as well. Had an issue with Hilman's a while back, but Kelly is awesome.

I would highly reccommend Waskish Minnow Station. Kelly & Jon do their best to keep you on fish. Their houses are always clean also, which is a bonus.

I'll second Chad Benson. He got myself and a buddy (along with his other clients) into them big time late last March. His house was great and he worked very hard to find fish for us. Plus he was a good guy to fish with. Google Chad Benson and you'll find him.

Chad is now a sponsor and has a site. Chad is one of the top anglers I know. If Jon and Kelly are booked on the days you are interested I would call Chad second.

Does anyone have any experiences to share about Club Red?. What area of the lake do they normally have their houses?. Or how about Bearpaw guides?. Thanks

You won't go wrong with Club Red. He fishes out of Hillman's usually along the north shore. Pat really knows the lake well and has good houses. He is the sponsor of the URL forum... click on his link and it will take you to his web site.

Good Luck!

I have used Bearpaw guides and I liked them. They are right next to West Winds. Steve is a very nice guy and his son Tyler is out fishing all the time. Lots of good people on Red to go with. You should have a great time.

Check out Raveling Outdoors, they have a link on top of the page now I see, I stayed with Mark last year, brand new houses, very nice, good guys that took care of us the best they could when we were there (It was the coldest weekend of the year, they had to change the propane tanks out every 7-10 hours to keep them from freezing) blush.gif Wow that was cold, man

Does anyone know anything about Outdoor Authority? We have our own sleeper, but this year I am bringing up my father in law and some of his friends. I called the minow station and they were booked up for this particular weekend. I did a ton of calling and these guys seemed pretty decent with nice houses. If you have any info email me natelappi@hotmail.com , any info would be much appreciated.

I have rented from just about everyone up there and there are a lot of good ones. However, Raveling has to be the best by far. These guys are Pro and have the best houses by far. Check them out at www.RavelingOutdoors.com

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Nice way to check water temps lol ~Tripp

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
