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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
