I would like to know the same thing. Just booked with them for the 18th and 19th. My buddy has some friends who have a private house with them and thought it would be cool to be in the same area. Never used them before...

Fished out of one of their houses last February. Was my first and only ML ice fishing adventure. They were reasonably priced plenty warm and we caught a few fish. We had weather move through which made for one good feeding window for the weekend and that was about it.

Their shacks weren't anything fancy but they seemed fine to me.

I was up there January 06 and there houses are ok, we caught zero fish and when we got there it looked like the house had never been moved like they do at other resorts to keep on the fish. Luckily we had portables with and found fish ourselves, would have been cheaper to just stay at a hotel and I havent booked with them since, going to Appledorns this month and next can't wait! crazy.gif

We were out on New Years Eve and New Years Day. We ended up with a 26" eye at 4 in the morning. The houses were ok and it was reasonably priced.

Good stuff guys, KK we will be up there this week end, I will give you a report when we get back.

DO you drive your own vehicles out to the houses? It could be close to 35 or 40 degrees out. That may help our bite a little. It will be my first time out in a rented sleeper. Going up with a bunch of buddies, any fish will just be a bonus. But I really dont want to get skunked.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
