Best place for a ice fishing get away?

Recommended Posts

Walleye #1

Hey all--
I was wondering what resorts you reccomend best for January ice fishing. Which ones put you on some fish, have nice fishing huts, and accomodations?? We are trying to get a trip planned. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

keep those rods bending

I guess it depends on what you're looking for and what your budget is?

Is it hard core fishing unlimited budget?
Fishing and dining mid-range budget.
Mainly a fun party trip with fishing mixed in, etc.

Can you give us a little more info.

Hey Rick,
We are looking at a low budget 3 day weekend out on the ice. We have found a couple places on Mille Lacs. That run at a decent rate for a fishing hut that you can stay in for the weekend. It is mostly just a few guys looking to have a good time hanging out and catching some walleyes and perch.

Thanks
Jason

IMHO you can't beat McQuoids. They know what they are doing and will do what they can to put you on fish. No one knows the lake like they do. 1-800-862-3535

Rick,
I know McQuiods is well known on Mille Lacs but what about Dickies? Are these resorts know for putting customers on good locations? We are looking to have a good time but also catch some fish. Whats your opinion? Also how is the fishing in January?

thanks
Jason

Thanks Rick and the rest of you!
I think we have settled on a place. Now lets talk some fishing. What is the fishing like during January during a normal year?? Presentations, etc.?

Thanks
Can't wait for the ice!!!

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
