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.

Great location on the lake and great people, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
