  1. Was? Are you no longer staying there?
  2. Mille Lacs isn't the only lake in the area. We probably would rarely fish it during the summer, I'm not a big fan of the wind and waves out there. We would probably do more 4-wheeling and visiting during that time and fish some of the smaller area lakes. We are just going to be fact finding this year so next year would be the soonest we would probably make a move and Mille Lacs has to rebound sometime. I'm hoping we can buy during the down time and be ready for the upswing in a few years. Plus, you do realize there are other fish in that lake besides walleye, right? There are still some less expensive campgrounds and another one that we are looking at also is only $1800 but it seems like the majority of campgrounds are closer to $3000. Leech, what are they charging up at your campground?
  3. She's more on board for this than spending $3,000 to park our camper at a resort and only being able to use it 6 months out of the year. At least that's what she told me.
  4. I'm thinking about buying or possibly building a larger skid house to use year around on Mille Lacs. I have friends who have houses at Jerry Brandt's and will start there in my search for a resort. Anyone here have a fish house that they use year around at a Mille Lacs resort? If so, what do you like and what do you dislike? I understand how the ice fishing works at most of these places but I would be most interested to know what your summer experience is like? I'm used to RVing at campgrounds and I know this will probably be more "rustic" than that. Anyone have pictures of their house set up in it's summer spot? I'll be up there a few times this summer looking around a bit but just wanted to get a head start if anyone has any input for me.

    Ice off predictions

    Weatherman on the news last night predicted that it will be record late ice out for most of the state or really close.
  7. Good luck finding any today......

    Norway Maple tree damage, need opinions

    If it doesn't blow down today, it's probably all good.

    The way the weather is going, you should have plenty of time to decide....

    Looks good to me!
  11. Maybe just a simple box call might be best for a novice. Whatever you get I would listen to calls on the internet and practice imitating them.

    Exactly why we are not likely to see deer populations as high as some here would like.

    That's going to be a back saver!

    I think it was a holder for some sort of ice fishing electronics. All I remember is it looked like you used a beaver to cut the handle hole.....

    Looks much better than your last woodworking project......
