Which lake to go to

9 posts in this topic

The wife and I are looking at taking three days to come to Minnesota to fish. I would like to go to a resort that rents perms. I also would like to go on a lake that has a good reputation for perch and walleye

If you were going to take a trip from Michigan, which lake would you go to for the best chance of getting good perch and walleye fishing. We would do this in the middle of the week, as I believe the rates for the lodging and the perm rent are a better bargin.

I read a lot about lake of the woods, milelac and winnie.

Which would you pick? This will probably be a one shot deal, as the fixed income is not what it used to be.

Thank in advance

What I like about Lake of the Woods is it's a day time bite. I think your wife might like that too, go out at 8:00 AM and head in at 3:00 PM. Zipple Bay is a good spot but I prefer to go out from the river, either Sportsman's or Riverbend are good choices. I've heard good things about Arnesons and the NW Angle is very good if you don't mind the extra drive and going through a little part of Canada.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
