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

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
