Planning a ice fishing trip

6 posts in this topic

I am planning an ice fishing trip for early January. I am looking to rent a sleeper that can hold 2 or 3 people. LOTW is a little too far away from the cities, so i'm looking a little closer.... maybe vermillion, winnie, or even Mille Lacs(if there is good ice).

Can anyone recommend any good places to rent from? Thanks.

Chris

WyoChris check out Highbanks on Winne. I know he has some nice wheelhouses that he keeps moving around so you stay on top of the fish.

If you're going to Mille Lacs I would get a hold of Appledornes or Hunter Winfields. I've fish with Paul at Appledornes and he's a great guy. Fished out of Winfields and they are great as well. I haven't used either's houses, but judging by their service, they are both top notch to deal with.

I have also went out of Hunter Winfields resort, very nice to work with, I didn't stay in one of their houses but he plowed me a spot for my house near some of his, he has some very nice units and all the ones I saw were also running nice quiet honda generators. I will definetly use his road again this winter.

Another vote for Hunter Winfields. I've stayed in their houses 2 times and couldn't have asked for better service or house placement.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
