Hey Doop,

Barry is a pretty good guy, I see him at the sports shows once in awhile. I fished over there a few times when I was younger before I bought my own resorts. If you need any info on laker fishing just let me know.

Dont be afraid to go with Barry on your ice fishing trip. Hes a straight shooter on what to expect, so if you like what he has to offer, you'll have a good time. Myself and my family has known him for many years dealing with him both on buissness and personal items, great guy.

thanks guys...I appreciate it...I know both of you have great operations. I really have no idea which one to look further in to. lol I have finally convinced my dad to tag along on an ice fishing trip. It's been over 20 years since I've ice fished with him. (i'm very excited!) Needless to say I'm hopeful that we'll get into some big pike wherever we go. If you want....feel free to e-mail me with what you have to offer. jensenmd@hotmail.com

Thanks for the replies!

We have been going up there the past few years over pres day weekend. We've always had at least one day of our trip at -20 degrees but the fishing has been pretty good. We do lots of running with sleds but have had very good walleyes and trout. It a very fun trip. Browns do a good job to help their customers any way they can it seems.

There is so much water to fish out of Brown's resort..lakers in clearwater, greytrout and white otter, walleyes nearby, and if you do go make sure you ask about the splake and brookie lakes nearby. We always take a part day and hit them. Lots of diversity. Does seem like both times I was there it never got above zero tho and the last morning there a couple years ago was -31, brrrrrrr grin

Ive only been up there during soft water season but Barry and Carol do whatever they can to help you out. The fishing has been excelent but its been years since i caught a laker...but thats because i havnt targeted them for years wink. it is a great opperation and you should not have a problem with them at all

some of the lakers that have been taken through the ice there are easily over 40lbs

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
