Storing a private fish house

7 posts in this topic

Any resorts in town offer this service? My father and I are looking to build a 10 x 16 permanent and are looking for a resort to store it at. Any info would be great.

Hillman's will store your fish house... I'm not sure if they charge, or what they charge in that case...

For wheelhouses, Hillmans doesn't charge anything as long as you use his access. Not sure what he would charge for storing a permanent. Not sure what other resorts would do for permanents.

Hillman's stores houses, along with Roger's Campground on the south shore. I've had my house at Roger's for the last 3 winters and Jerry & Joanie do a fantastic job.

I haven't been up to Red yet this winter but my parents have and there has been a freshly plowed road out to our shack each time they've been up there.

I'm sure a few other places store shacks as well but those are the two I'm familiar with.

Roger's Campground and Hillmans so far. I may have to give them a call. Any others?

We asked Hillmans if they could store ours about 3 or 4 years ago and they said they couldn't?? Right now ours is sitting at Hudecs.

Hillman's stores for a week or two during the winter. Not many in the summer as it is all campers. Up North Storage has room for fish houses. 1 mile east of Westwind.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
