it is not a resort on the lake like hunters point is. fishhouses are stored about a 1/4 mile down the highway, there is no bar/resturant. you drive on the lake at a public access point. roads are kept up really well. i don't have a house there, i just live here on cove bay and see jay out there daily working his butt off

Moved my house there from Hunters 2 years ago. Was sick of the HP zoo of drunks, stuff getting stolen and close to $2000 a year fees.

WW does not have showers yet but only porta jons. Fish shack is nice. The place is very quiet and prices are great. It is not a place of entertainment but all folks are friendly and respectful. If you want some peace and quiet with not unneeded frills then I highly recommend WW.

Like tom said, there are limited amenities, no showers, no bathrooms (porta potties are for their rentals). Price is right and jay and amber are good to deal with and work hard to keep everything running smoothly. I don't think there is a time day or night when you don't see one of their trucks out there working.

I have a wheelhouse that I usually take way up north. I made the decision this year to keep it closer to home and fish Mille Lacs. I am trying to figure out where I am going to keep it for the winter. I like the good reviews about Wilderness. My question is this... For a guy new to ice fishing Mille Lacs, does their road get to good structure? I plan on keeping the wheelhouse out on the lake and use it as a base while I roam around and find fishing spots.

Thanks!

I got out of the fish house thing qite a few years ago but I believe Red door has a yearly fish house park that is cheaper than some of the others.

Thanks Walleyhooker. I have done all the research and found a bunch of them that will support my needs for a fee. What I am more curious about is the fishable structure on all the roads. WW is a great option for me cause it is a close drive. But how is the area for fishing?? anyone?

Thanks!

Lots of flats to fish out in front of RD and good for walleye and perch. One thing I like about the RD is its a very clean place. They just added a resturant and no bar so not as many obnochus(sp) drunks.lol Their FH park is across the road and they have pictures and rates on their website.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
