overnight ice house rentals

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking of taking my dad somewhere for a 2 night ice fishing trip and was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions for a sleeping shack rental with great fishing.Whether it's walleye,pike,crappie or whatever.Just looking to give him a good Christmas present.Thanks for any help.

It would be quite a drive and I'm sure others will give you MN locations, but I would suggest Devils Lake, ND. If you can't get the walleyes or perch to cooperate you can always find action on the pike with tip ups. You could ask over on the North Dakota forum about ideas. Last year I stayed at Woodland Resort. It wasn't a guided trip, but I know they have packages available.

I might suggest Upper Red Lake always walleye to be had, also great Northerns and then there are the slab crappies... I know a nice cheap place just a few minutes off the lake if you are looking for that otherwise check out the URL forum and look for kelly or jonny p

I'm like a broken record on this but, Upper Red is the way to go. Great fishing, great lake.I keep a sleeper up there and my friends used Portavilla last year.Very nice shacks with good prices. Google them and you should find the info you need.Otherwise try Rogers CG and check thier rental link.Good luck.

I would like to third URL, I have fished up there every year for the past 6 or so years with the exception of last year. A couple of the years we went twice. I have stayed with different resorts with different results, so I really won't give any reccomendations, but there are plenty to choose from.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
