The night bite is pretty much non existent. I have stayed out in sleepers on Devils a couple times and will leave a lines in all night nothing has happened for me until morning. We always bring our portables along to stay mobile. We try to stay on the bite and move frequently from just before sun up until sun down. A buddy of mine who has family in the area has stayed on the lake at night alone a few times and only caught one nice sized pike. He was asleep and awoke from the sound of his rod falling to the floor of the shack. He jumped up grabbed the rod and battled the fish. So, it is possible but I wouldn't stay up for it. Some of the rentable sleepers up there have the rattle reels on the walls. If the sleeper you rent is equipped with those it wouldn't hurt to rig those up... While your up there hope for overcast conditions. Sometimes the walleye will bite through out most of the day with conditions like that.

We just came back a month ago and while there I had a rattle wheel go off twice in an hour,(around 2:00 in morn). Just enuff to wake me twice. Missed it both times. Felt like a small eye??? But I was up there for 4 nights.It seemed to me the bite didn't really begin til about 9:00 A.M. and ended around 5:30 P.M.. Caught 1 17 inch around 7 P.M. on the last night that got a hold of all our lines. It wouldn't hurt to leave a rattle wheel ready but don't expect too much. Good Luck!

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
