good lake to rent a sleeper for Perch fishing?

Recommended Posts

We are looking to rent a sleeper later this month and would like to go after some Perch. There will be 4 of us. Does anyone have any recommendations on a resort or lake we should target? Prefer up north in MN, but we would have no issue traveling to ND or SD to find a weekend of good fishing. Thanks for any advice!

Devils lake. Than if you cant go till first part of march, MN season closes for walleye, you can go after other fish than just perch

I would second Big Stone on the MN S Dakota border. They have been having a good perch bite most of the season.

We stayed in one of Arties shacks on big stone and did pretty good. nice houses and at 160 a night i think its hard to beat that.

I looked into arties on big stone, but he must have jacked up the prices. Its 300 a night for a 4 man sleeper. Looked like a nice house but that is a high price, most other places I have looked into are right around 200 a night for same size house. Was that this year you stayed there at that price?

I would third, Highbanks. We caught alot of the fish pictured on Highbanks facebook site. The first 2 days some of us fished out of their Sleeper shack #10 and did really well on perch. The third day we ventured about 5 miles out of one of their new roads and caught a load of perch, walleyes, and northerns between 10am and 4pm.

I would suggest ND or SD We fish stump lake that is connected to Devil's every year and are never disappointed in size or numbers of perch and walleyes. We don't get guided but there are plenty of quality guides in the area, just make sure to do your homework there are a lot of guides on devil's don't just pick the cheapest. Also some friends were on Big Stone and did well as of lately too.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
