Help on Ice House Rental Ideas

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

My mom wants to get my dad a gift certificate for one night in an ice house, and she really wants him to catch fish... mainly walleye! (I am the lucky one because I get to go along for free!) My question is where would you suggest we go where we would have some consistent action and also is within a few hours of the cities (not URL or LOTW). I kind of want to avoid Mille Lacs because it just doesn't sound to hot right now, I was thinking maybe Leech or Vermillion?

Thanks guys!

Brian-

I would try Sportland bait and tackel at Nissawa, talk to Jason or Dave.

I don't know what you are calling a "few" but Leech and Vermillion are a stretch for a "few" hours from the cities. You never know what's going to be hot around the cities.

I would check into Mille Lacs, just because it's always been a on/off walleye lake and you never know what's gonna happen. There's resorts there that will keep their houses "On Fish" to the best of their abilities. A few of them are sponsors on this site.

Look at it this way, you and your old man can spend some quality time together if your catching fish or not.

At least that's what I'd do. I'm OK catching fish or not, it's who you're fishing with and the act of fishing that does it for me.

I agree with Hoggs, it's about being with your Dad and not all about the fish. But then, getting on fish is always good as well. I would seriously check out Appledorns on Mille Lacs. Paul will hook you up for sure.

Winni (I think is a better icefishing lake than leech)

High Banks is good. So is Camp Jigglestick.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
