Ice shacks/sleepers?

7 posts in this topic

Is there/who all rents sleeper shacks? Thinking of coming up for a night or two. If so how long do they stay on lake?

The second week in March. You think they'll still be out then?

Yep, I will still be out fishing but using perm's I doubt it... It all depends on the weather... Usually that time of the year, the sun get's high enough and we start getting honeycombed ice... I would call Break on the Lake or Cass Lake Lodge and check with them on their perm's that time of the year.

I would think that time of the year you would rather want to use portables and stay on top of the perch and panfish instead of being set in one spot. Plus with the warmer weather you most likely would be doing a lot of open ice fishing..

March is my favorite time of the year for ice fishing because I can run and gun and find various schools of crappies, bluegills, perch and tullibees... To drill 80 holes is not uncommon...

If you have any questions let me know...

Good luck,

Beef

Thanks for your help. Talked with Cass Lake Rentals. got all info we needed. We'd be coming up late afternoon is there much of a night crappie bite?

A night crappie bite on Cass? I've honestly never heard of one....ever. From what I know about Cass Lake crappies, unless you target them when they're spawning, it's pretty much like the proverbial "needle in a haystack".

Too bad. We'd only be coming up for a night that way then going a li'l further to big pond. Rather fish through the night a li'l than go to hotel.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
