Check out the sponsor's of this forum. You will find their links at the top of the page. Also, check out Hunters Point.

I would try to make the reservation quickly...resorts that can accommodate that big of a number usually fill up fast.

Hope this helps.

Myself i have stayed at many different resorts around the lake in sleepers and will be again January 14-17 allso have caught fish at all places i have stayed. Just be moible if your not seeing or catching in one area move to another.To find one that holds you all maybe hard to find but i could be wrong.You may need to rent a couple houses. I would call around see who has what to offer you and your group.Some resorts will even throw in a few drinks on the house with big groups.Just my 2 cents hope it helps. The reports have been looking good thanks guys for sharing your outings with us fellow members. cool.gif

how does someone who is renting a sleeper stay mobile. seems to defeat the purpose. call dickies portside, good people and good fishing. tell them you want a house that is on the deep side of the break. better for all day sits than fishing the top. when i rent a sleeper w/freinds we often put 1 tip-up out per person in day,and i like both my lines in the shallower water at night so i put out 2 tip-ups. i use a pager to alarm me that my tip-up goes up. this is always a blast. good luck.

I couldn't disagree more. I rent a sleeper for a base camp. It allows you to sleep on the lake and catch fish at the same time. I bring my portable up and use that to hunt around during the day and hopefully set up for the sundown bite. I think its a great one-two punch for catching fish.

What he said.

That is if ya want to put in some serious fishing .

If ya want to party or just kick back and relax (with the chance of catching some fish), then by all means stay in the hardside shack all day.

Either way is OK, it just depends on what ya want and what ya expect.

Powerstroke has the same idea as i and that would be how to do it - now you know LoL cool.gif.

walleye chaser, we like to rent top of the line houses one weekend a year. 3 of us split the bill, $350-400 each. we tend to hunker down and r&r. the tip-ups make us semi-mobile. normal weekends are spent hunting walleyes with the portable eqpt. you play your way and i'll play mine. tongue.gif

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍
