Alternative resorts/ guides maintained ice roads

Recommended Posts

brrrr

My friend and neighbor asked me the other day for alternative (NOT Red, LOW,  or Mille Lacs)  places to bring his wheel house. He likes having a plowed maintained road and usually a resort with bar/restaurant type of amenities nearby .  Other than Leech and Winnie I really didn't have much for suggestions.  

Ideas?

I think your friend should invest in a plow and some chains because there are very few lakes that have plowed roads that could handle a wheel house other than the ones you listed. If a resort has plowed roads they don't want a wheel house on them. Might be able to get the resort to plow out a spot  for a couple of bucks. I know Fish lake north of Duluth has plowed roads and the resort owner would help if paid.

There used to be a guy in the Pelican Rapids area that would plow a trail out to fishhouses late in the year. It may be worth it for him to call around to some guys who plow or even small landscaping companies. I would bet he could find someone to make a path out to his fishhouse for some extra cash. The downside to having a plowed road to his house would be all the extra traffic and fishhouses that path would bring.

Cass Lake or Lake Bemidji, possibly Bowstring. Rainy or Vermillion might be about the only other options.

Thanks for the info guys.   He decided on leech .   I did find some guides on Kab and Bemidji that were willing to help him out as well.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
