I guess we aren't really sure about where we want to fish, but Gull, Round or maybe Pelican would be ok I guess. I was just more curious if there were any people around that rented sleeper houses. I usually plan a trip for the 2nd week in January for myself and 3 other guys. We have gone to Red, Mille Lacs, Cass, Lake of the Woods, etc. in the past and would like to try something different. The kind of fish isn't important to us. We like catching crappies, walleyes, Northerns, Perch, whatever. We rarely keep any fish, maybe a meal. It is just fun getting together on the ice with some old friends.

Hi walleyes, Give us call at the bait shop. A couple of our fishing guides rent out some fish houses. We can put you in contact with them. They offer a great service and I know they work hard to keep folks on top of the best bite going. Our number is 218-963-2401.

I know this is a late post, but I have been away from reading the Forum few weeks and was just reviewing posts. If you wish to catch walleyes at night, in a comfortable house, in an area that has FISH, then you can do no better than WalleyeDan. I fish in my father's house on another lake(not a sleeper) each winter for 2 weeks(every day dawn to dusk) or more on annual trip to Brainerd--just to fish. For 3 years I have always rented Dan's houses when I wanted a sleeper. His service is top notch. He has a real fan in my 11 year old Granddaughter who has a WalleyeDan patch prominently posted in her room in Carson City, Nevada.

Nope, I am not asked to write this--just telling about a good experience!

Hi Wahoo,

Hope all is well in Nevada. Thank you for the good words. We are making ice up here this a.m. (0 degrees at the moment) but the wind howled most of the night so I'm guessing that the big lakes are still fishable with a boat. That is if you can find a ramp, O.K. maybe we should just say it's ice season!

We will be "On the Ice" again this winter. We will have some houses (permanent, portable and most likely a Sno Bear or Sno Fox). Guiding will be the focus this winter and we are looking to reach out a little more and fish the entire area, not just the immediate Gull Lake/Nisswa area. Should be fun and it looks like it's going to fire up sooner than later. The BIG ice fishing show is this weekend in St. Paul, but after that things will start really happening. Hope you are coming up again, if so give us a ring.

Dan,

I'll be out on the 26th and fish a couple of weeks. I'll give you a call. What about the Vikes!! Will they ever get it together?

Sounds good. I'm not sure about the vikes. Wouldn't it be something if we got to play the Packers again? I don't even know if that is a possibility as far as the playoff road, but if we do get to play them I think we will win!

Talk to you later,

Walleyedan

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
