Best Rentals

9 posts in this topic

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.

Hook Em- You owe it to yourself, if you want to have a great time.. stay at a great place...and catch fish!... give Paul a shot at Appledorns. I always have a blast when I stay there!

I would check out Raveling Outdoors they are going to have brand new houses and are great people to deal with.

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

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
