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.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
