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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
