Looking for a Mille lacs Fish house on Skid

Recommended Posts

Chumba

Back to the drawing board after another weekend of searching. Ive seen all the Craug list houses.

If anyone has any info on a Skid house around 8X14 - 10x16 in the $1500-2000 range let me know. jmbirke3m at hotmail dot com

(Figured i would start another thread on this)

Chumba, Just trying to be helpful, so please accept this with that in mind....As for searching, have you called resorts directly and asked what they have for sale? (This time of year they can be hard to reach...but they also might know of clients looking to sell now that season is done.) Also, from my view, I think you will be very lucky to find a quality house at this size for the price range you list. However, some sellers also can be very eager to deal this time of year because they don't want to sit with the house until late summer/fall - the prime time to buy. In short, if you see a more expensive house listed, check it out and make an offer. All they can say is "no." Good luck!

Thanks. I have done some of that. I have not called all of them. I got out this weekend and drove through some lots on the lake, checked out a bunch for sale, and not for sale just to get a idea of what I am looking at. I know the price range is low, but if i find the right person looking to sell... I am fully aware it would need work. I just want sound foundation.

As an example there is one on Craug list at the red door with metal skids 8X12, open on the inside, only $500. Im tempted, but really want something bigger.

Imho,I would go with a 10 foot minimum width.The extra room is nice for four or more in a larger house.Some of the resorts don't like medal skids..........they seem to tear up and move bridges from time to time.c63

Nothing wrong with having a 8 x 12. It just all depends on how you lay it out. That's what I have been fishing out of for the past 20 years. The resorts love smaller houses also. I only was charged 1/2 the going rate for having my house moved to different spots cause it was so easy for them to pull mine. I also got on the ice a week or 2 earlier than the bigger houses. full-38115-18341-oldoffcaitlinsphone1103 Here is my house out on 8" of ice. When I was at Twin Pines they would pull it out on 6" with a wheeler.

If you go less than 10ft wide you will regret it!!! There are plenty of 10x16 houses out there in that price range. Rememeber you may spend several DAYS at a time in this house. Nothing worse than a small dank house. depressing.....Big windows are also a big plus.

      On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.

      Well, gave Boulder a try today. Went out from the dam access. Some open water behind dam. Couple trucks drove out 😬 I did not! Foot travel, and not knowing anything about this lake made for great day to enjoy the weather. Only caught 1 perch and 1 walleye.   
    • Cret Jigs
      Wow ... the back held up today!!   Always forget to take pics UGH ... wish i had taken some, just a great day on the ice.  met some very nice people ... and enjoyed the great weather.  brought home 7 Sunnies, 2 crappies, and a large mouth.  Missed a bunch and caught numerous border line pannies.   Great great time.

      Just got back from fishing a lake close to home fished in 9fow managed to get 5 crappies around 10 1/4" used a 1/8th oz  orange glow pinhead minnow tipped with a minnow head, also got some perch and two slimers, just picked up a ifishpro and a 36" TUCR with a okuma bait feeder reel I like the ifishpro much easier and better than usein a regular tip up, Anyone have a good recipe for pickled  fish the wife wants me to try and pickle one of the slimers I got.

      Met up with my cousin and his kids today to teach them how catch gills and crappies. The oldest who is 10 caught on quick and out fished his dad by an easy 6 to 1. He caught his personal best gill at 8.5 inches and his personal best crappie that went 12 and 1/16. He called me just now and said he wants me to take him fishing again tomorrow and next weekend. It’s easy fishing when it’s nice and the fish are on the munch.   We fished 10-12 feet of water and we used 3 mm jigs in white, gold, and metallic blue. They used wax worms and I used plastics. Spring bobbers were key for letting the kids see the bites. We kept enough fish for good fish fry for their family and grandparents. This is what it is about getting kids hooked on fishing.

      Thanks to 3 guys that were out there to help me land the fish and also take a few pics.

      A really good day out. Nice weather and the fish were active. Started out suspended btwn 4-10 ft off the bottom. Then later they were on the bottom. At dark they were back to 8ft off. Left the lake with the depth finder still showing fish.
