Ice fishing

I am sure this has been asked a hundred time before, so here is the 101st time. We have been going to Mille Lacs for the last few years, renting a sleeper for two nights. Looking at trying something different this year, LOW came up in our conversations. Any advice as to rentals, sleepers, etc.

thanks

I've stayed at Schuster's (site sponsor) and Ballard's and would recommend both places. Heading up December 31st and can't wait!

Ive had good luck out of Morris Point in past years, we went out of there for 5 years in a row however the last time they rented our rooms for the following year before we could re-up them. Needless to say we were not pleased so we have been out of Cyrus last 2 years and really have enjoyed there accomodations a lot. The only thing about a sleeper is and someone please correct me if im wrong but we have tried fishing past dark with very limited success. Could be a long night in the house with just pout biting after dark.

Consider Riverbend as well a very nice place.

I will second Iffwalleyes and his recommendation for RiverBend. They built new houses in the past couple of years and they are pretty nice. You won't deal with better people than Charlie, Judy and the gang at Riverbend. Bill

Don't forget Borderview. Maybe hard to get into early in the year. We have re-upped our reservations for the second or third weekend in December since around 1991. Nice people.

Since we're traveling down the river here, I would recommend trying Wigwam resort, they provide excellent dining, fish cleaning, transportation to and from the houses, live entertainment every weekend in the winter, and some of the most knowlegable staff on the lake, Tom and the crew do a great job on the ice!

If you want to get away a little bit more than by the river, try Arnesen's. I would say they are second to none. Good or bad - you get to fish more structure in that area too.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
