Wanted - 30-40 person Corporate Ice Fishing Setup

9 posts in this topic

I want to give some of my VIP customers & vendors a very unique experience the day before our annual tradeshow now being held at the Civic Center in St.Cloud, MN (Indoor Tanning in the business).

I've reviewed alot of websites and the largest ice fishing rentals I could find are 10-12 person..but I have to believe their is a solution for a group of 30-40. The date would be January 8th, 2010 and would need to be somewhere within 90 minutes of St.Cloud. We would bus them to the location, fish, have a "on the lake dinner" and bus them back to the hotel. Everything on the lake would be presetup as most will "virgin" ice fishers. That's the idea anyways.

Any suggestions? Anyone done or know someone who did something similar?

mille lacs is borderline 90 minutes depending on what side of the lake you go, but i would think thats your best bet finding a resort or service that could accomodate that amount of people.

Is Mille Lacs within 90 minutes of St. Cloud? If it is, your best best would be to get a hold of a resort...one of the sponsors of this forum would work, and explain your situation...they might be able to help you out, or at least give you and idea of what to expect. Give Jason a call at Hunters Point. They have always catered to larger groups very well.

I think you'd have to set up a wall temt - find a rental place that would set it up for you. Then maybe you could lay out some carpet and fire up the nipcos

Sounds like you've gotten some good advice. I like the wall tent idea! Please post some pics of your outing this winter. It sounds like it's going to be a great experience for your clients.

Get a hold of Paul W. @Appledorns on the east side of Mille Lacs. they have a huge house but would be willing to work with you no doubt. With that many people, you might want to consider hiring a couple guides to work with all those people making sure they have bait, etc.....

Check the Mille Lacs Page he is a moderator on that forum

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
