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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
