Dickies Port Side Resort

5 posts in this topic

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.

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.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
