Dickies Port Side Resort

We got a free weekend at one of Dickies sleeper houses and I was just curious if anyone has ever had any experience through them, good or bad. Either way we will bring beer and cards but I was just checking to see. Thanks for the input.

Will

bring a bucket in case you get the middle of the night "urge". they don't have an outhouse as promised. i would also bring a back-up heat source. their stuff is really old and not well taken care of. if you have problems in the middle of the night, you won't be able to get a hold of anyone. they are running this outfit 11 miles away. with a little warning and planning, you can make it enjoyable. it's tough to beat 'free'.

We stayed in a Dickies on Mille Lacs 12-man house last weekend(out of Liberty Beach). It had 12 bunks....all the same size (3 high). It had two heater and we never had any problems keeping the place warm (had to keep it on 65* so we didn't roast....even in the -20* weather). The heaters worked great. There was a bathroom which consisted of a chair/bucket, and it served it's purpose.

Check in was not until around 4pm I think.....my buddy got there at 10:00am Friday and they took him right out to the house. Holes were all drilled, heat was on and lights were lit.

Regular rattle reels every few holes (probably 8 total)....only one was missing...all had line on them. They came out Saturday morning to grab the trash.

The houses were not brand new.....but the one we stayed in was just fine for what we wanted and it served it's purpose well.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
