Day house

Recommended Posts

jramsber

Hi everyone. I am looking for a place to rent a day house for one day. There will be two of us. I know there are many resorts that offer that but I was hoping for some recommendations. Thanks much!

JR- rather than being one of the 179 people viewing and not responding, I'll weigh in with my limited experience. A few buddies and I did the same last year and we ended up grabbing a shack from Twin Pines on the west side. I will note that availability made the decision for us, moreso than us seeking out Twin Pines. It was a saturday, we didnt decide to head up from the cities until the day before and most other resorts were more or less full.

I've had great overnight trips to the red door. I was disappointed with Twin Pines as they said they'd be ready for us at 8am. We showed up around 8am and they didn't get it ready until after 9am... nor did they offer us a bloody while we waited.

Good luck.

Appledorns for sure. Great place to stay and put you on fish.

Lybeks. Kept on fish last year. Best part is you do not get as much traffic as other places from peoepl running to the bar.

I have never had much success renting houses on the west side of the lake. I would try one on the north. All the ones recommended so far are great ones. I love fishing the west side of the lake but none of the resorts have ever put me on fish where the ones on the north side always have

Have you considered doing a 24hr rental? Just an idea, but 90% of the time I catch all my fish between around an 1 hr before sunset and about 9 AM. Unless you are really willing to work for them- hole hoping and staying on the move during the day- the day time is pretty slow in that clear water. Just my opinion......

I don't live in Minnesota anymore and miss the ice fishing. I was up there last year and used a day house from Lybacks and caught lots of eyes with the biggest being 26 inches. Caught a few decent perch and plenty of smaller ones. When I did live there I tried quite a few diff places on Mille Lacs and Lybacks was always the most consistent fishing

      So great to read this , how so very caring and thoughtful you truly are . thank you for posting this ray guy ! Your fishing buddies are so lucky to have you as their friend and fishing partner .

      The city of Duluth is only allowing locals to go go smelting in the rivers . Non local cannot participate due to the Covid19 restrictions , and while smelting all must maintain at least a 6 ft distance .
    • Bigfatbert
      With Covid19 restrictions this holds  true for non family members .   With a 12-17 ft boat no more than 2 people can legally fish from it    With a 18 -23 ft boat no more than 3 people can legally fish from it .   With a 24-30 ft boat no more than 4 people can legally fish from it .   must always maintain at least a 6’ distance  at landings , landing parking lots , docks , while in he boat fishing or moving around  , using a landing net ,..

      I know where your coming from always on the water well before sunrise and usally of by 10 or so.  My  buddies always say we know your off the lake and the boats loded as soon as we see the first jet ski or water skier. 😀 Problem so many are so inconsiderate now a days. They see I'm walleye fishing and its like a game to go right by me when they have the whole open part of the lake to tear up. 😡

      Poachers caught and more poachers caught by Tom Chapin. Alot of them happened within 60-70 miles of our cabin.

      I hear ya on fishing locally. I only like big water, not for the fish but because I get tired of going round & round like a NASCAR. Also have a very low tolerance for jet ski's, water skiers, speed boats.   Fishing is just something I do while on the water, not the reason I go.
    • IceHawk
      You should know you did it in a few threads yourself 😂 In fact we all have maybe a time or two.  Had to throw that one at you 😉 All in good fun!

      I hit Mill Lacs once a summer but it's not a real big deal to miss it. More than likely wont even go this year. Wish I could but may not even have that option with this stuff going on now.   I have lakes near my area that always produce good results if you put in the time to figure them out. Ill fish locally as I almost always  do through the summer just way easier with my hectic work schedule. Many people would be surprised how good of fishing they have close to them if they would only put in the effort and time to learn the lakes near them. Agree with all these bad years with the regulations and now this sad but true some of the mom pop resorts just wont make it to much longer.
