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.

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
