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.

      What a difference a couple of warmer days make.  I had great snowmobile travel conditions on Burntside on Tuesday.
    • JerkinLips
      I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile.  Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice.  The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon.  The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while.  If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated.  If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.

      Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.   How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?   Fishing reports please?

      I have not seen any, but I am not out in the country much yet. I need the snow to drop quite aways before I can get back to most of my spots.

      Spring is no slouch for activities though! Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:   Sapping Shooting - rifle range Shed hunting  Still enough ice to fish through Some open water to cast to Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes  Scout for turkeys Snow goose season is open too   It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:   Helping move someone Taxes Annual files cleaning HVAC maintenance  Some catching up at work Snow plow repair/maintenance   At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!

      I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style

      March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight.  They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.   There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet.  Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.

      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?
