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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
