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.

High Banks is good. So is Camp Jigglestick.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
