Rentals that work as good base camps

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm wondering if some of the resort rentals are in a better location to get to more lucrative and secluded ice. What are your thoughts?

We've had luck out of Mac's but was wondering how much different it would be out of Fisherman's Wharf or McQuiods (sp?).

I have fished out of hunters point did really well out of them.Stayed with appledoorn's a few times did really well there also.Not really secluded but put you on fish or do there best.All depends where and what you want to fish rock,mud or any other location.Myself i like to stay on the west side of the lake and go from there.Just remember to be mobile and on the move if your not getting or seeing anything on the cam of flasher. Just my 2 cents. cool.gif

i have worked for both hunters last year and now the wharf this year and they both have there basic houses and deluxe houses that cant be beat. Like walleyechaser says it all depends what stucture you want to fish. mac's houses are are great to but i would look north for fish

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
