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

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
