HI MattsGal, There are so many great places to go up North I wouldn't even know where to start. My dream vacation would be to go to Rainy Lake and rent a house boat for a week. I've never done that before and have only driven by there once many years ago.

For the last 5 years my DH and I have stuck pretty close to the Waterville area because we have a seasonal camper there and I really like that area.

Where ever you decide you want to go you can get lots of info on here. I think every area thats fishable is covered on here.

A word of advice. Most places fill up fast. Some even years a head. I'd make your decision soon and get your reservations made.

Let us know where you decide to go.
Have A Good Day <><Mary><>

I agree with Mary, I would love to do the houseboat thing on Rainy River. But other than that, because we always have to be home to feed critters we just fish locally. Someday maybe we will get to go for the big ones.

If you want to go to a nice resort up north, try Morningstar in the Cass Lake area. It is located on lake Andrusia, which is a great walleye lake and also holds muskie. You can access Cass lake, Kitchi lake, Pike Bay and Allens Bay all from Andrusia if you're willing to travel by boat. There are also several other good lakes in the area. Little wolf is a very fishable lake that sprouts about 2 weeks earlier that other area lakes and is a muskie brood lake with a 50" size restriction, but you are almost guaranteed a hook-up if you stay in 12-18ft and troll a diver. Walleyes are plentiful also in L.Wolf. You can put in at little wolf resort for $5, the public is not advisable. Tell em JJ sent ya over. That is also a nice resort if you are not looking for alot of resort based entertainment. If you want to fish the Bemidji area, I say go to Taber's bait and resort in town. it is not on the lake, but Ron and Pam are great and you can hit several area lakes like Bemidji, Julia, Pike Bay, Big Bass, Irving,Plantaganette,Big lake and Turtle. Be sure and tell Ron and Pam that I sent you. Have fun and practice C&R, let 'em live to fight again!!!

Hi Gals,

Doesn't look like we are planning any outings in the new future, but it's great to know where to go in the event we do start planning. Thanks for the info though! I appreciate your replies.

    • That's interesting. I would believe fish gorge themselves then go a day or two without eating.  They probably don't eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner like I do!
    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
    • As Leech said, I would contact Johnny P with Red Lake Remotes. He used to post a lot on this site and seemed to know the lake like the back of his hand. He started a few years ago with just portable houses in order to go "remote" but now has sleeper houses.  
    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.

    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.
