Ice Fishing Information

Recommended Posts

bassNspear

i bought my new ice castle this spring, and im just curious on some information for the up coming season

Where do most of you go out on?

Where can a guy hit up a shower?

I have always stayed in a house that was rented from a resort, so just curious now that i have my own house!

Thanks all

We went out of JR's and Mort's Dock last year and definately would go back! Roger's seems to have more ammentity's than others, but I know the farther west we went last year for us the better fishing we had. Alot of that could be due to the weather though! I know I can't wait for this year! One trip had us talking about another and after the second trip we were hooked!

I always go out of Hillmans now. Great fishing, super wide safe road(as safe as ice roads go), and if the ice allows they cover a ton of the North shore. West Winds has clean private shower rooms a 1/4 mile up the Hwy. They also have good food and plenty of drinks if that is your thing. West winds also has a road, so you could get it all out of one place if you want. I have just had a lot of luck going out of Hillmans wink

I am surprised for the money spent some wheelhouses don't have portable showers. Thousands of dollars spent and a shower is always the hitch.

chuckle....snort.....B n S, keep in mind how many people were around that house you rented. Yes, you were out of the pizza delivery area; no, there were not any igloo bars thumping out dance music on the way out, but for sure you did not see the meandering ice castle caravan either. Personally, would first see how the lake sets up, and then see what your options are as far reputable/safe road systems vs the amenities you desire.

$5 token you buy at the bar or the bait shop at west winds. The shower is timed, I think it is 5 minutes. 5 minutes is plenty for me, I usually shut it off before it runs out. On the days I know I am going to shower, I usually wait until the 2nd cup of coffee is about to kick in and hop in the truck and go. Nice to use a flushable toilet after a few days on the ice sick

Not sure what the other resorts charge.

The showers at Rogers resort are 5 dollars with soap and towel. They are cleaned daily and have to be one of the friendliest resorts on the lake. Good luck fishing.

hmmm....5 bucks a shower? I might just have to start a little side business! Long as I'm paying to keep the water on at the cabin I might as well get my road fees covered!

course I'm not all that friendly...

Pushbutton makes a valid point about just where the lake is easily accessible, and don't have a 30' crack that isn't easily crossed! Taking a shower in an RV edition is possible...just don't want to freeze it in when emptying the grey water...lol heck, a washcloth and some strong deodorant would be fine...Oh wait, skip the deodorant and maybe the crowds will stay away from your crappie hole laugh

I will have to find showers for my wife and myself, as i hate not to take a shower

looks like from the research that i have done, westwind and rodgers are the only ones that have showers, and there 5 bucks to shower. IMO its worth that for a 3-4 day stink bomb!! Plus, when i bring my wife along, shes gonna wanta do that anyways.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
