Ice Fishing Lodge Recommendations

11 posts in this topic

After doing LOW for 10 years, we figured its' time to try something new. Can anyone give me their suggestions on Lodges that provide Accomodations and fish house rental on URL? Looking to go in early January. Thanks in advance for the information.

Get a hold of Kelly P. He runs fish houses, and does a bang up job! He is the moderator on this forum. His business name is Waskish Minnow Station. Click on his website below his signature to contact him, or call the number and talk to Patsy.

Good Luck!

Kelly-P is the way to go if you are looking for just a fish house.

I would like to some day rent an ice house from Kelly P. The last two seasons, my son and I have hired Bear Claw.

Have fun!

For some reason the ice fishing fever has hit hard today. I wish it was 4 1/2 months from now...I bet Kelly doesnt because of lack of sleep from looking for all those crappies. grin.gif

I would rent a sleeper, I'm sure you could pay for a shower somewhere. Crappie will bite at night alot so you might miss the best bites. And it is kind of peacefull when the herd moves off at night.

Westwind has showers. I "think" it is $5.00 but am not sure.

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
