Resort for families and ice fishing

2 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I'm looking for a resort in the area to visit this winter with a few other families.

The wish list:

- outdoor or indoor activities with the kids

- a bar/grill on site (so the parents can coax the grandparents into babysitting while we enjoy a few libations)

- good ice fishing - we'll bring our portables if no houses for rent

Thanks for any help!

-Dominic

WE actually don't have many resorts that operate during the winter months. The ones that do really don't offer any programming for families or kids because it's a down time. We won't have anyone who rents fish houses, but there's still hope. I would suggest contacting In-We-Go resort on 8th crow wing. They have a motel connected to the resort that they operate year-round. There are a few local taverns in Nevis and Dorset that should entertain you for the evening when the sitter's around. As for ice house rentals, sorry, there aren't any in Nevis or Park Rapids, but Walker is about 20 minutes and you could rent a house on Leech. Otherwise, you can always take a portable out on 8th, it's a good lake. There are a ton of fishing opportunities in the area and you can always get in touch with me regarding some ideas/ pointers or guiding.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
