I'm looking into insurance options for an Ice House and wondering what advice or recommendations anyone has on the best type of coverage. Also, if I want to be able to rent out my ice house when I'm not using it but not as an "outfitter" or "guide" would that be something that typical coverage wouldn't cover if a profit is being made since I wouldn't have the coverage that a company running as an outfitter would have? (Such as how normal car insurance doesn't cover an Uber driver when they are logged into the app and giving someone a ride because they are consequently on the road more often and making a profit.) Any and all information or recommendations would be extremely helpful!

A few friends and I decided to try our hand at something we've never done before - targeting Channel Catfish through the ice. This definitely proved to be a bit of a challenge and took me out of my comfort zone. After getting a few bites and fish up the hole we started to figure out a method that worked for us. I don't feel like it's the most productive way to catch these fish but it worked out for us that day. At the end of the day everyone in our group caught quite a few fish, had their rods doubled over and left with smiles on our faces. These fish put up a heck of a fight on Walleye gear! I will definitely try to get back up there this season.

LOOKING FOR WALLEYES CRAPPIES N PEARCH TO KEEP. WHERE IS AH GOOD SPOT TO START FISHING. can anyone lead me somewhere goodg

Anyone know of a good ice fishing lake near vermilion? Perhaps something with a hot panfish bite.
I used to fish a small lake just north of Malmo on Milla Lacs at a town called Glen. The Lake was called Clear Lake. I have not fished it in quite some time and wondered if anyone has any information on it. (Ice conditions, whats biting, etc.)
I moved to St. Cloud a few years ago but thought it might be nice to ice fish the lake this winter. I used to catch some nice stringers of perch, crappies, and sunfish.
Can anyone tell me if they are still selling bait at the Gas Station/RestaurantStore at Malmo?
Any info would be appreciated.

Got on a small lake in the Bemidji area to chase after some BIG panfish. Snowstorm came through and made them finicky but managed to pull couple topside for a pic. 5mm Tungsten jig tipped with a Trigger X mustache worm did the trick! Probably my favorite fish to catch in the winter!

Went and checked the first ice lakes and found .5 inches to almost 2 inches. If you go out please bring a buddy and dry clothes.

Voyageur Park Lodge on Lake Kabetogama recently purchased brand new Ice Trek brand fish houses to rent on Lake Kabetogama. The houses themselves are all aluminum with spray foam insulation, clean, warm and comfortable! If your looking for something different from the usual LOW, Red experience check us out. These are day use houses only and we will offer lodging at Voyageur Park Lodge. We will only have one lodging unit open in the winter, so fishing parties will be the only guests at the resort, so lots of privacy and no other parties around. Fish houses will be private out on the ice also!
We are excited to be the only angling houses on Lake Kabetogama! If your looking for something different let us know!

By Wanderer · PostedThanks for the feedback. We have the time from hookset to release pretty short I think. I read earlier this spring the average fight these days lasts 90 seconds or less. I’ll admit I was amazed to hear that but after a half dozen muskies that have come to net this year, that’s no bull. We usually have em netted on the first pass by the boat. My 48 inch net allows one to do all the handling in the water while the other gets the bump board laid out and phone ready for a pic. A quick measure and quick pics and back in the water they go. Thats about as much as we can do. 70 degrees is lower than I expected to hear. We were seeing those temps on opening weekend in Ontario. We didn’t like seeing 80 last Friday on Leech.
By guideman · PostedTypically temps over 70 degrees are considered dangerous for handling Muskies. The length of the fight and the time you take handling the fish will make a difference. That is one of the reasons we use heavy line and big rods, you don't want to battle the fish to the death. Skip photos on smaller fish and remove the hooks with the fish in the net, in the water, not on the bottom of the boat. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
By Wanderer · PostedI was able to get back out on Leech last Friday the 13th. Had to take a day off work to get some fishin’ in! This time was strictly for muskies but bass and pike showed themselves anyway. 🙂 The morning waves were still rolling from either the night or Thursday and the lake was rougher than expected at 6 am. The forecast said 0-5 and eventually the wind did calm from the northwest, switch, and then proceed from the southwest. The effect for us was basically almost a 180 degree switch while we were out there and we didn’t see any fish of any size after that. I think the switch was complete by roughly 1 pm. The other thing that raised our eyebrows was the surface water temps. We started seeing high 76’s right away on the main lake but climbed pretty quickly to 78-79 mid day and was topping out at 81 by the afternoon/evening. This made us really want to focus on deeper weeds but weren’t having much luck locating them. We just weren’t in the right part of the lake. But that’s how you learn - by doing. Total muskie count for the day = 2; 1 follow (mid 40 class) and one boated (41.5). The day went SUPER fast for 10 hours of fishing. Black bucktails raised the two for us. I had the follow, my partner caught the fish. The temps had us concerned about the fish but my monster 48 inch net enables us to keep the fish completely in the water until it’s time for a quick measure and pic. Still trying to come to grips on what’s too warm for fishing muskies. This one was on the line for no more than 2 minutes, including the net time before the hooks were out. Maybe another minute to get the phone and board out and glove on for grabbing it up. Less than 1 minute to measure and photo, then back in the drink for an easy resuscitation.
By Jeff Thill · PostedLooking for walleye and bass fishing mostly. I did hear good things about Clearwater Lake. My wife has been looking at houses and her focus landed on West Sylvia. She could care less about the fishing. Have any of you heard good or bad things about Sylvia Lake?
By FishinCT · PostedI looked up the Mille lacs hooking mortality study on walleyes and it started to dramatically increase around 65 degrees. About 5% mortality at 65 degrees but about 25% at 75 degrees. I have to imagine the numbers are higher for muskies given an extended fight with a large fish, having to take more care to not get cut up or hooked yourself while unhooking the fish, temptation to take lots of pictures, etc. Here's the study if you're interested http://mnmuskie.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Reeves-and-Bruesewitz-2007_factors-influencing-hooking-mortality-of-walleyes-Mille-Lacs.pdf
By DLD24 · PostedWent out the last couple days on Mille lacs, we had no problem finding fish, but the big fish eluded us... We got all sorts of year classes from 11" eyes on up to 24", which is a good sign... That big storm they got must have dirtied the water up, all the fish we found were on the top edge of the flats no matter how bright it was... Rigging leeches and crawlers were the best until we got some waves then the jigging rap was taking all the fish. The fish were stacked up on points of flats and narrow ridges on the flats... We tried pulling lead for a little while, but I've never done it so I had zero confidence in it haha.
