need help finding a good lake to rent a sleeper

Recommended Posts

Peter Griffin

Hi, I have a question on renting a sleeper house. For the past 5 years me and a few friends have been going up to Red Lake for a weekend each winter. Since the crappie bite is pretty much dead up there, we are looking for another lake to rent a house and spend a weekend, does anyone have any suggestions on where we could get a good sleeper house and catch some nice fish besides lake of the Woods and Mille Lacs? Thanks for any replies.

Hey Peter - I love your work on "The Family Guy." Hilarious!

Anyway. The bite on Winnie has been pretty good. You could call up Highbanks and see what they have available. I haven't been out on Cass much this winter, but I know that there are some options like Cass Lake Lodge for sleeper houses there as well.

Let me know what you decide and I'll come fish with you smile

Leech is starting to turn around for eyes and even when we didnt get any eyes we did good with big perch and tullibies. Cass would be good too. Don't forget about Winnie, its seems to be overlooked lately. I have really been meaning to make it out there. Maybe check Vermillion, I have always nailed them there too. I'm not sure about sleeper houses out there, but there is plenty of lodging around the lake if you find a regular rental.

We have one on Minnewaska if you are interested. Brand new and really nice. If interested, just let me know. Happy to have you out. Panfish bite is good or can set it up on a walleye spot if you would rather fish eyes.

Fish On!

Welcome to FM Peter. I have heard good things about Leech, Winnie and LOW. Not sure how far you wanna go. You could also look at Mille Lacs.

Thanks for all of the replies. I am thinking about reserving a house with Cass Lake Lodge, has anyone on here stayed with them before? And does anyone know how the fishing has been up there? Thanks

I'm not sure what kind of drive you're wanting to make, but you can catch some serious Walleyes all day long on the Missouri River in Pollack, SD. It's a 5.5 Hr. drive from the twin cities.

The resorts are right on the river and their houses are on the fish at all times. You can self-guide with your portables and rent a cabin if you want more comfort and the $$$ is right.

I saw something on a post somewhere about a resort on norway lake.Not sure where it is but sounds like fun. If I remember right they were they were saying something about no slots.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
