Perch Express

Recommended Posts

A friend was telling me of a train that goes to Devils Lake. He said it was called the Perch Express. Anyone heard of this? Sounds like fun. We live in Minneapolis.
Thanks.
Good Luck...

Perch Express is Amtrak. You can get on the train in Minneapolis and get to Devils Lake. Most of the guides there will pick you up and take you out. Perch Patrol is a good one. They are at the Sportsmens show this weekend if you want to set it up.
Good Luck!!

A ticket is close to $100 round trip for one person from Minneapolis. As previously mentioned it is AAMTRAK and not a special train.

Dano, I don't know if the train goes through FM. I don't think it does. It must run up through GF.

My opinion guys but... Drive here. Most folksm who book the train are shot when they get here. They can get through the first day OK but the second is a chore.

According to my schedule from last year... you would leave Minneapolis at 10:25 PM, hit St Cloud at 12:40 and get here at 6:25 AM. That is 8 hours on the train. You can drive here in 6 from the Twin Cities.

On the return you leave here at 11:32 PM hit St Cloud at 5:11 AM and Minneapolis at 8:00 AM. It will cost $81.50 from Minneapolis.

Split the gas. Leave home at noon and get here around six.

Kevin, now that is some good information.
I don't think I would care for the
"MIDNIGHT EXPRESS". 20 years ago. no problem.
Thanks for the advise. I'll remember your name if we get your way.
Good Luck...

Thanks Kevin, will have to look you up when I am ready for some jumbo perch, and maybe a nice northern, haven't ever got in to perch very big like the ones I have seen from DL.

When the walleye is done here at the end of Feb. I may have to do that.

I saw a tv show on the perch express last night on the outdoor channel. I can't remember the name but it's like Ron Schara's outdoor adventure or something like that. I believe it is mostly a minnesota outdoor show but none the less they put together a pretty good piece on the whole package.

    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip?
