Where are you staying? We stayed at Manotak and had a blast. My advice: listen to the resort owner when he tells you how to fish. If that fails, which it didn't for us, then try your way. We got a guide the first day there, then we were set for the rest of the week.

Bobberboy: We were at Manotak 2 years ago on Perrault, Grassy bay is a good place for northerns, its not that deep and seems to hold alot. I cant remember the name of the bay, but you get to whale rock and go south, there is some beautiful spots there, my brother in law caught a 48" muskie there while northern fishing, its very cool back there. Jackfish bay was really good for the smallies, I think they should rename that bay. If you do stay at manotak, ask about Fluke lake, its a portage lake thats exclusively for muskies, that was the most muskies I have ever caught (or seen) in my life. Its a 30 mile drive but WELL worth the trip. I'm leaving for Lac des Mille lac on Friday, ( We like to try different lakes) But Perralut still ranks number one for me. Hope this helps and good luck- Let me know when you get back how it went, I love that lake and would like to hear if you can beat that 48 incher. GOOD LUCK!!

I was up on Perrault for Canada's opener -- my buddy owns a cabin right on the lake (in the French Connection as it's called)...temps were cold -- Manotak was spending it's days thawing frozen pipes in the cabins as temps dipped well below freezing every night -- not to menetion I had to shovel snow out of the boat opening morning...

Anyway --- as mentioned, Grassy island is great for smallies...Jackfish bay for evening fishing...Ord Creek and Church Lake are great options as well.

Have a great trip -- post a report when you get back!

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
