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

Harry

You should get a ton of action on Upper Red...I always pull a bunch of fish out of there.

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.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
