ICE SHACK RENTAL

7 posts in this topic

looking for a ice shack rental for a weekend or two this winter. A little research and I have found many resorts which provide sleepers, but price has varied quite a bit for a weekend rate. Doesn't need to be fancy. Anyone have a particular favorite? How often will they move the shacks dependent on fish? looking for eye's and perch.

thanks

Try Lybacks between Isle and Wahkon. They consistently move their rentals to keep you on fish. Walleyes, Perch, Northerns, Muskies. Good People!

We rented from Scenic Bay last year, he had a lot of empty houses that weekend so he let us move around to which everone we wanted (which was really cool of him), and the prices were resonable. However, I noticed that all of his shacks had unvented heaters. While I am sure this is very common for homemade shacks that doesnt make it right.

How did you guys do at Lybacks and Scenic Bay? I'd like to make a trip up there this winter.

I have a permanent house out of Lybacks. Walleye fishing was real good through mid January and then tapered off. Best weekend two guys 18 Walleyes, biggest 27 ½”. Mix in 12 to 15 jumbo Perch each weekend with many more under 12”.

Not good, only ell pout and a few perch, but we had to go in mid Feb because of scheduling, I would suggest going earlier in the year.

My best recommendation would be McQuoid's. I went out of there last year and they have by far the nicest house, and get their houses out to hennipen island and on rock transitions. We had good luck, and are going back.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
