Sleepers on Upper Red

Recommended Posts

ctuma

Does anyone know of a good place to rent sleeper houses from. I'm looking at a trip the first week in Jan. and have never been up there before. Looking for place that will put us on fish and move us if were are not catching them. Also does anyone know if Hudec's is still in business. I called their number and it was disconnected.

I just made a reservation at Hillman's for a 6-person sleeper. They said every weekend in Jan. still had availability for that size house. Not sure about the smaller houses though. It's our first trip up there too, so don't know what to expect.

Expect walleyes, and a lot of them, with the occasional crappie, perch, and monster nothern. Every time I have ever been to Red I go out of Hillmans road. I have yet to have a "bad" day of fishing.

Last year I stayed with Raveling outdoors 3 times and had a great time. Just short of limits of crappies all 3 times (3 guys)and many walters. I already have a triped booked for the first weekend in January and I'm taking the girlfriend up. They have nice houses and are clean and they will take care of you. They are a sponsor. and the link is at the top of the page.

We've gone out of Hillman's for several years now and have had pretty good success. A couple of years ago you couldn't keep a crappie off of your line, and then we've switched to catching a bunch of nice 'eyes. Then you throw in a monster northern just to keep you on your toes. Check with Buddy at Hillman's and he will set you up and keep you moving if things are not going well. We've fished out of his sleepers, but have never spent the night in them. They are pretty good as far as that goes. Good luck!!!

Try Chad Benson also, just google "Chads Guide Service". I have fished out of his sleepers in the past and he will work to find you fish. He's also a sponsor of the site.

I would strongly reccommend Waskish Minnow Station. Kelly, Jon and Patsy will do their best to put you on fish and make sure you enjoy your trip. They also have nice clean and comfortable houses.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.
