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.

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
