Hey Jon, thanks for the advice the other day on when to make a trip up there. Unfortuanatly we wont be able to make it up there this year, but want to make it a trip for next year. We want to rent a house from the Minnow Station, do you have any idea as to how soon a person should get their reservation in? I know from previous posts you said they fill up fast. Would like to make it up the last week in Jan. or first week in Feb. cool.gif Looking forward to it already, maybe get a chance to meet you in person shocked.gif

I'll chime in for jonny......if you are planning on renting from them anytime this ice season you need to call and make a reservation, now. They fill up fast for a reason.

Those reservations aren't taken until next year. They take reservations only for the year of.

I believe Alex1's question is: At what time next year (for winter 08-09) will they start taking reservations? He already knows that you cant make those reservations now and he knows that this year is filling up fast. Its a good question and I'm looking forward to the response. Is mid summer too early or do you have to wait until fall. Since they are already booked this winter for weekends until March, I assume they started taking reservations some time ago for this winter (07-08).

They generally start taking reservations for the next ice season around October 1st.

Hey guys thanks for the responses. Yes I was looking for what time of year they start taking reservations. Thanks for the answer Borch. This will be my 3rd time to U.R. and my sons, and dads first time ever to U.R.

I emailed Kelly and John early this fall and they said they dont usually take reservations until Oct. 1st. So, right before Oct. 1st I emailed kelly and he set us up for Dec 26-29. I cant flippin wait! I must read through the site about 10 times a day. This year I plan on C & R a 20 lb gator.

Jon's in the middle of moving so he'll be unhooked from the net for a few days.

We start taking reservations Oct 1 for that winter. We used to start earlier in the year but jobs change, divorice's happen, fights happen, death happen's until about 1/2 of the people would change their reservations before freezeup. It seems that everyone is a little more set in Oct.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
