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.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!
