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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
