fishing trip


Recommended Posts

Some buudies and I are looking to make our first ice fishing trip and was looking for some recomendations on resorts or places to stay with ice house rentals. We are thinking of going somewhere on mille lac's, but am open to other lakes as well but not looking to travel too much further north. Mainly want to try for walleye northern.Also any comments on tackle(pole,bait-lures) needed to land these bad boys is really appreciated. Thanks for the help smile.gif


Have an Ice day :)

Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs has been bad lately. That can change at the drop of a hat, though, and if you're looking for big ice for walleye other than M.L., you're talking Winnie or Lake of the Woods, and those are quite a hop further.

As for tackle and techniques, most experienced ice anglers could write a small book on that, and your question is very general, so it's hard to spend the long time it would take to answer that in any detail, because, well, where does one start . . . ? grin.gif

However, when you settle on a resort/rental place, pump them for information on what to bring. Because then you are a paying customer, and their livelihood depends on giving you the information to have a successful outing.

Also, the basics are covered in any number of ice fishing books available at local bookstores, and you can get a GIANT TON of info on this site by paging through old posts.

Good luck.

    • yea that place is awesome!!!   been years since I was there...  maybe a road trip and stop at Bongards too!!!  
    • We actually hardly buy any of the candy, but they have so much other good stuff like the Pies, apple bread, canned and jar pickled stuff, hot sauces etc. 😋
    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
    • Which one?  I've been trying them all around the cloud.  Just had Elk burgers from McDonald's Clear lake last week and Bison tonight.  
    • Burgers from a new butcher shop.👍 good flavor 
    • The big pogo stick front shocks took a little getting used too.
