+1 on Appeldoorn's. One of the cleanest and friendliest places on the lake!

Check out Portavilla out of Red Door on the North side. Very nice houses and at a very good price.

Ditto on clean and friendly! One thing to check is when and where they move their houses. Last time at Appledorns, the house we got had obviously been there for quite some time. 24 hours and no fish. I guess it depends on the time of the season but buyer beware. Zipple bay did that to us a few years ago on LOW. We had to use the portables to go out and catch fish. The sleeper was just that. Just sayin'

I've had good experiences out of Hunters Point. Few years back rented one of their cabins. Arrived late afternoon, caught maybe 1 that night. Called them when we woke up and they were hooking up 30 minutes later and pulled us to a new locale where we proceeded to do well immediately. I've heard good things about all previously mentioned resorts as well.

Given the current state of the fishery, business will likely (again) be slow this year. I would bet most operations will be putting their best foot forward with any customers. That being said, talk to them before you commit and inquire what their policy is regarding moving houses during your stay if the fish aren't cooperating.

Heading up to Appeldoorn's on Tuesday with my son. The house we have reserved is one of the premier houses and it looks like a living room on the ice.

Hope they are biting!!!

FYI...Portavilla is no longer running houses on Mille Lacs.

Whats everybody's take on Hunters Point? I'm headed up in Feb with my father in law for his first ice fishing experience. We will be going mid week and staying for 2 nights. I was thinking Hunters Point, or Hunter Winfields. Any advice would be great!

My wife and I stayed at Twin Pines a few years ago. Owners/staff were very friendly, let us move into a different fish house when fish were not biting. The food was good. Its not the most modern place out there, but if you just need a place to lay your head it will work just fine.

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers. 
    • tacklejunkie
      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon
    • delcecchi
      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also
    • Kettle
      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
