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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
