Ice Trip

5 posts in this topic

Never iced Mille Lacs before and I would like to know any recamendations or thoughts on the best sleeper shacks on the lake along with the best service. I will be bringing my 2 nephews and brother for their first ice trip on a large body of water. I am guessing I will be up there in late Jan or early Feb to chase Perch and a few Eye's. You can also shot me a line at maccj@mchsi.com if you would like. Thanks for any info you can give.

I strongly recommend Appledorns. I used their access all year last year and rented sleepers twice and always had the BEST service and info around. Will be my spot again this year with no second guesses. cool.gif

I agree. Appeldoorn's is the way to go. I've used them the past couple of years and have been treated to top notch service.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
