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.

    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
    • To bad your not up here in Minnesota.  There are Ice houses on lots for sale all over this state.  You could stop in with a tape and get the dimensions you need.  
    • My thought was building an axle similar to this.   Then instead of using cranks I was going to use some 5000lb Square Bullydog jacks.   Then making a handle I could put my impact on to lift and lower the Ice House.    With having the camper, I already have the axle, electric brakes and springs.  Its just the matter of welding it up and making it work.  This is an example of the Clipper Ice, which Im trying to duplicate, just trying to find the dimensions.

I assume that they make them bigger... sorry that I don't have an answer for you. What sort of jack system are you putting in... electric or hand winch?
    • Good for you guys!  It's been an uphill battle for us so far!  Hopefully something stumbles into our baits soon.
    • I'm hunting no quota, have 3 for sure different bears maybe 4 on my bait. One is a giant boar. Headed back north tonight, will rebait an and set my stand in the morning. Only took 2 days for them to start hitting, my guess they were already in the area because of the mass quantity of acorns fall by the bait site.
