Outdoor Authority Houses

Going to be taking my first trip up to Upper Red Lake in a couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone can tell me about Outdoor Authority and their service? Friends have used them but this will be my first trip. Curious if anyone else has used them this year and if they are catching any walleyes? Thank and good luck fishing boys!!

My father in law and some of his freinds are going to be up with me and some freinds the weekend of the 10-13 and they are staying in one of theirs also. I would also appreciate the info. They seem great over the phone!! I also heard from another guy that they had a great time with them. I guess they stay out on the ice in their own house. Could come in handy.

I stayed in their log cabin house last year, it's a great house, except for the fact they told me it could house 7 guys, and it does not,although they did let us rent another house cheap to make up for it. Also there is no stove or oven in it.

You have to pay a road fee at rogers to get out, that is not included in thier price nor do they tell you about ahead of time. Not a big deal I just thought it was a weird way of doing buisness.

They're both really nice guys but one is at home running the books and one is out on the ice running the rentals and I am not sure how much they communicate.

Those were the issues we had, none of it was a big deal and we had a good trip. Would caught a lot of walleyes but not a crappie in sight. I would rent from them again, mostly because of the guy that runs the rentals out on the lake (I forgot his name), he does a good job.

I think it was 3 years ago when we tried them. It sounds like they have that problem of telling you a house can sleep a certain number and then not delivering because it happened to us as well. They had a camper converted to a house they said could sleep 6, and was more like 4 1/2. (Don't ask about the 1/2) Luckily, we brought up our own ice castle and a cot as well, which saved us. We caught fish, but since I have been going with Raveling outdoors.

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
