Anyone here have a permanent fish house on Mille Lacs that they use year around?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about buying or possibly building a larger skid house to use year around on Mille Lacs. I have friends who have houses at Jerry Brandt's and will start there in my search for a resort. 

 

Anyone here have a fish house that they use year around at a Mille Lacs resort? If so, what do you like and what do you dislike?

 

I understand how the ice fishing works at most of these places but I would be most interested to know what your summer experience is like? I'm used to RVing at campgrounds and I know this will probably be more "rustic" than that. Anyone have pictures of their house set up in it's summer spot?

 

I'll be up there a few times this summer looking around a bit but just wanted to get a head start if anyone has any input for me.

I guess the Red Door resort built a new campground and my Cuz does the summer winter thing with his Ice Castle which is a pretty big house. They like it but I have not been by yet to see their setup.

 

Are you sure Mamma's going to go for it? :P

 

Fish House Park

To enjoy your fish house during the summer season on Lake Mille Lacs, we offer a beautiful, quiet, wooded area just across from the resort. We have two distinctive parks consisting of 96 and 86 lots with a layout similar to the beauty of a state park with ample room for a deck, shed and parking a vehicle and boat.  Both parks have year round heated bathrooms and showers.
Electric 20 amp service is included. You also have full use of the resort.  For less than renting a monthly storage unit, you can have your summer cabin.   BEST LOCATION ON MILLE LACS as we are not only closest to the flats (1 mile),  but have over 15 spectacular pan fish lakes within 4-10 miles directly to the north of the resort.

Rates

$525 per season (May 1 through October 31st) and a $50 fee for AC.

She's more on board for this than spending $3,000 to park our camper at a resort and only being able to use it 6 months out of the year. At least that's what she told me.

Well she may not really care about being on a lake and actually keeping fish then?  To each his own. :)

Mille Lacs isn't the only lake in the area. We probably would rarely fish it during the summer, I'm not a big fan of the wind and waves out there. We would probably do more 4-wheeling and visiting during that time and fish some of the smaller area lakes.

 

We are just going to be fact finding this year so next year would be the soonest we would probably make a move and Mille Lacs has to rebound sometime. I'm hoping we can buy during the down time and be ready for the upswing in a few years.

 

Plus, you do realize there are other fish in that lake besides walleye, right? ;)

There are still some less expensive campgrounds and another one that we are looking at also is only $1800 but it seems like the majority of campgrounds are closer to $3000.

 

Leech, what are they charging up at your campground?

I think ours was $2,000 plus dock spot and power so about $2,300. Not even taxes on a cabin for the year.

    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing. 
    • Come on leech, you should know, you've been around forever. :)   Kemps Ice Cream........"It's the cows"
    • Congrats nice Bird!
