Going out with a truck camper overnight

2 posts in this topic

I'm heading out to the lake next weekend. Planning on sleeping out there in my eight foot truck camper and fishing out of a portable. Anybody have any opinions as to whether this is a good idea or not. Will have plenty of propane for heat i'm more worried about falling through or being able to get to the spots. Never ice fished mille lacs before have a 04 dodge ram 4x4 camper is an extra 1500#-1800#. Thanks for any advice. Also, do people use generators out there, if so any unwritten rules, don't want to scare fish away from anybody.

I am no expert on campers on the lake. But here is my two sense. If you are going to run a generator, set up away from everyone else. Especially if you are only doing that for where you are sleeping and not fishing. As for the Ice condition. I don't think you have to worry about it with the current ice depths, but at the same time, check with the resorts just to make sure they are advising those weights for ice travel. I don't know if I answered any of your questions, but have fun and use common sense.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
