In the summer, yes I do. We have a cabin on the southwest side and I try to make it up any weekend I do not have work related conflicts. I am a junior at SMSU in Marshall, so it is hard to get up often in the winter. I have been up once this winter, and am planning another trip in march. IMO it is the greatest get-away lake in the state. It is so peaceful up there, and the fish bite year-round.

winniewalleye-

Can I ask what resort you go out of? We are thinking about moving our skid house down from Red. We stopped at Denny's and they seemed like they had a pretty well run operation. Just wondering what else there is.

Amen to that winniewalleye. We stay at 4 seasons every year and there is nothing better than being the first one on that lake in the morning in the summer.

We actually did stop by Highbanks, on the advice of the river rat bait shop. But they said that they are unable to store houses during the off season. But they looked like they ran a very good operation.

Not to bump off this thread but........Can I ask winniewalleye why didn't you just go to Bemidji State rather than Southwest? Cuz then your only an hour from your cabin, and your in God's country 9 months out of the year. As you can tell I went to BSU and loved it, but the only downer part is trying to find a full time job here if you want to stay. Once you live here you dont want to leave and its hard to swallow the fact that you might have to go back down south (St. Cloud area, cities, southern minny), even if the money is better. My motto is the farther away from the cities I am the better.

Our cabin is actually on the Four Seasons resort. It is a great location, but in the winter they do not do much for ice fishermen. Their cabins are open with groomed snowmobile trails to the door and to the lake, but no sleeper houses or anything. In response to the college question, I absolutely love it down here in marshall. It is a very different atmosphere than the St. Cloud area, plus there are roosters everywhere! I chose SMSU for their education program and the proximity to all of the hunting land that I have access to. Our Mustangs stuck it to your Beavers a few weeks back on the hard court if I do recall correctly grin.gif

In the summer, Four Seasons is the best place to go. But in the winter (as has been mentioned) they don't have a lot going on there. Highbanks provides great service for ice fisherpeoples, and is closer to the good hardwater fishing anyway.

I'll be out on Winnie this weekend - good luck to me all of you fishing in the tropical weather this weekend!

I'd say 4 years ago? Judd's was a great place to stay and "old man Judd" as we called him was good for putting us on fish and keeping us laughing!

Thats ok, the bball program there is still rebuilding cuz they were doing pretty good when I went to college there but the program has gone through as many coaches as the Timberwolves so you can't blame the program for going down hill last year. Plus I never really worried about the sport scene at BSU, which was odd cuz my major was sports management...but I was more worried about what lake to fish or what track of state lake I should put up a bow stand or the suckers were running and getting the spears ready! I guess there is some really good bird hunting down there, and even around st. cloud but Im not much of a bird hunter, maybe would go for some partridge (grouse) a few times a year and scout for deer sign while I did that, but I do miss the fishing!

      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.

      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!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
    • ANYFISH2
      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
