Upcoming trip

5 posts in this topic

So I've got 4 days off work next week that happen to line up with my dads off days as well, were thinking of taking a trip up north some place, it would be from Sun-Wed.

I'm stuck on where to head to though, of concern is that we will be using a 16' Lund Rebel with a 40 hp, wind and waves don't bother me, but I don't want to get pounded all week either. It would be nice to have a big lake to fish if the weather is decent but also have small lakes near by to hit if it really blows hard. We will most likely be staying in a hotel and trailering to the lake daily, any recommendations for lakes or areas to head too?

Leech!!! Fishing is pretty hot right now. There are plenty of close hotels in the area. The lake has plenty of areas to get out the wind a little bit. For the most part, the fish have been biting the whole lake. Check out the Leech Lake forum and you will see positive reports from the whole lake.

URL would be a good option, especially if the Tamarac River is open to fishing.

Crane-Sandpoint-Little Vermilion-Namakan-Kab chain if you dont mind the extra drive plus there are smaller lakes like Echo that produce pretty good. If you put in on Crane there are lots of good spots close to the landing.

Come stay in Bemidji, you've got a ton of hot lakes to choose from, and if the wind is blowing you've got a ton of smaller hot lakes to choose from. Win-win-win.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
