Looking for advice for wheelhouse

6 posts in this topic

Be my first trip with my new wheelhouse and would like some advice on which resort has the best roads. Don't want to cross anything dangerous first time out. I'm looking to set up for home base and pop around with the sled. Would like to catch some eyes at night in the house though. Don't need specific spots just general ice conditions and maybe parking on a good break close to shore.

Thats what I'll do. It doesn't look like a guy would have to go out to far for some action there. Thanks Bruce.

Another option is Nodak Lodge, we've been staying there and fishing out of there for years. They also have great roads and will give you maps and good advice. They are on the south side of the lake, near Bena, and have roads going to several bars and the humps. Good luck and have a great trip with your new house!

Sounds like you've got a good strategy - staying mobile throughout the day for the perch and then settle in for the late afternoon through the evening in the sleeper for the walleyes. Feel free to stop by or give us a call at 800-365-2560 for the latest reports on ice/fishing and we can also give you a map on our current road system.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
