      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

First time with wheeled house

Recommended Posts


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

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.

      The GPS ideas are great. Garmin Huntview for Minnesota is $79.99 and OnX has 7 day free trial. The plan is to have the property surveyed. I believe Cliff makes a good point, do it right from the start. More time for fishing less time messing around looking for markers and  buying equipment just to possibly end up having the survey done in the end. Thank you for your responses they have been very helpful!

      I decided to skip Mille Lacs today. With the poor fishing reports and even poorer travel options out there, I’m hoping next week might be better. So bring on the sun for the next 7 days!

      Got out to west rush early this morning. No slush issues while I was there, but that could be different by days end. The landing was quickly degrading in just the few hours I was there...landing on east lake is worse. Only caught 5 crappies. Schools were scattered and on the move, and fish weren’t very active. Ice was about 32 inches, which made hole hopping very difficult with an ion auger. Caught a nice sun burn on my face

      Pike good luck!  Grew up fishing down there as a kid. Every so often I go back down there to relive some good memories  When I was 12 yrs old I use to fish down there with a couple old boys at midnight on opening night. Those old boys treated me as there own Kid!  And  I always thanked them for that  they taught me a lot. Caught a pretty good amount of eyes throwing jointed rapalas back then.  Its been a few years since then the old boys are gone fishing in the big sky above. But boy I still see there faces and smiles in my memory when every I stop down there

      Get out there with this amazing weather!! The fish are on the munch was fishing a point near deep water. You all know what I was using for bait if not ask.

      Was out on Shoe, Cedar Island, and mud today.    needed an extension on all three.   I would guess there is 36-40" on all of the lakes.   Horseshoe acces is getting beat up.   Cedar island 22 access is better.   Travel is easy on all of the lakes.   Don

      What brand?   Neighbors got a couple of floe sections at an auction last summer.

      I've been wondering for a while about the side scan thing.   I hope it will work for you , and am looking forward to hearing your reports, even from the east end...
