Help with next years Icefishing outing?

4 posts in this topic

Had a pretty unfavorable experience this year with my corporate icefishing trip to Mille Lacs, so I'm looking for suggestions on which resort to move it to? We have a group of between 35-55 people and would like to stay out on the ice for the weekend. Service is probably the most important factor, but quality of the houses would be a close second. Location on the lake does not really matter, but the southeast corner is more convenient for most of us. Thanks for your help!

Triton, I've worked with a couple different resorts up there, and so far I would have to suggest Paul at Appeldoorns. He is constantly moving his houses trying to keep his clients on fish. He's a great guy, this year we jsut came up for the day and Paul still shared his wisdom as to where to go to get on fish. This year has been extremely tough for a consistant bite. When Paul is not taking care of his customers, he's out scouting for a new place to move his houses to, to keep on fish. You can check him out on his link at the top of the page ;\)

Hunters Point does real well with large groups. Just be sure to book early.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
