Some friends and I are planning on coming up there and renting a sleeper shack from one of the resorts. This is our first time ice fishing on Mille Lacs.

Anyone have any advice on which has the the best fishing and which has the best shacks?

We have been looking at: Dickies, Twin Pines, and Fishermans Wharf.

Yea Appledorns looks like a nice place but we are going to have 8 people and dont want to have to get 2 cabins. From the website it looked like the biggest shack they have is for 6.

Has anyone stayed with dickies or twin pines? What were your expeiriences?

Yeah I am going with a group of 7 which started with 9. Its hard finding places that have houses for that many. It seems like all the nice places have 4 bunks. I think I looked at them all. We went with Brandts don't know anything about them but its the first time for us so worth a try. Good luck.

If I were you Id go with 2cabins for 8 people.Youll probably have alot better time and be a whole lot more comfortable.Appledorns would be my choice,topnotch icehouses.Use 1 for cards and sippin beverages and 1 for serious fishin and sippin beverages grin.gif

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
