First time with wheeled house

3 posts in this topic

I am looking for some advice or comments about bringing my wheeled house to some of the Northern Resorts listed on the website for Mille Lacs. I have an old camper I have converted and this is the fist season to test it out.

Some of my questions are.

When you pay an access fee to a resort, does anyone know of a resort that would have side roads plowed to set up on?

If you tell them you are coming for the weekend, will they plow a spot for you?

Will the resort let you venture off of their road?

Any other suggestions on how to get off the main road?

I don’t have a plow on my truck, so my only other options appear to be bringing a snow blower or a good ole shovel.

I know these are very general questions and may change resort to resort but I am hoping some of you have good info regarding the resorts listed on this site. Last year with no snow I saw houses being pulled all over the lake but with the early snow, that may not be possible this year.

Thank you

just bring a shovel you can go anywhere you want after your on the lake last year we drive acrost the lake. some places will plow lanes off the road. some places will plow for $ to where you want to go.

I would check with some of the resorts like appeldorns most all will get u out there safe. U can buy a season road pass at most all resorts that cater to ice fishing nice plowed roads and bridges over cracks and heaves. Good luck finding the right one for You.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
