Silverlake I sure do not remember anything like that happening? What house were you in? I have on occasion had to re drill a hole or two but you make it sound like I was no where to be found and you could not fish?

I was up with cookie earlier this before christmas. All i can say he is a great guy. He checked up on us periodocally though out hte day, and definetly had us on the fish. The house was awesome, it was cold and windy out but we were warm and well taken care of. Silver lake what do you mean the holes froze over? Were you fishing or just watching the ice form on them? I would rate cookie as a A+ he even hung out in the evening and chatted with us and had a pepsi. Nooner

Maybe you're supposed to have ESP and know he needed his holes re-drilled, I guess.

We fished out of a 8x16 brown wheeled house. The holes froze shut within three hours of drilling them and could not just use on ice dipper to clean them out. I was not bashing cookie, just letting you know the experience we had, being someone wanted the honest truth. In Cookies defense, I believe the house was not one of his regular houses.

Cookie is a top notch person, I have stayed with him before and he made my first trip to Red Lake a memory I will not forget. He had a beer in the fridge for you and the house was warm and cozy. He checked on us all the time and made sure we were on fish. We are headed up there again to stay in one of his big houses. I can't wait to get up and catch some walleyes because I know Cookie will put us on them.

I was up for xmas with the family and watched cookie run like crazy getting things ready for his customers. From plowing the road to getting houses out and heated! The kids and I used one of cookies older houses and even that was pretty nice! About 3 hrs of fishing we got 5 legal eyes! Overall he goes out of his way for his customers! smile.gif

I'm another satisfied customer, a friend and I stayed at his cabin a few weeks ago, we had a great time. We had portables but he let us use a hard house one night, (we basically played cribbage) but woke up twice by the rattle reels, 2 very nice slot fish.

Thanks Cookie!

I now remember that house and it was a borrowed house that turned into a nightmare? Never install a heater with a blower with out away to charge the battiers.Plus banking the house was another nightmare you could not get snow behind the tires. I did finaly start blocking them off with some plywood then snow. Glad I do not have that house again this year

I personally have never stayed in one of Cookies sleepers, but have heard nothing but really good things from people who have. I did get a chance to meet him this summer at hillmans and he was kind enough to give us some great tips for some monster pike and some walleye spots. I am positive you cannot go wrong with him.

Cookie, this is Ku-Ku, I dont know if you remember me, but all I gotta say is COOKIE is a top notch guy. I rented a house from him last year and even though the high temps that weekend average -15-20 and night temps in the -30's he still came and check up on us all the time to see if we were okay. He knows how to run his operation. Cookie I am going to email you soon about renting sometime in March soon. You wont be disappointed going with Cookie. wink.gif

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
