Ice Fishing Bachelor Party

Recommended Posts

Big Brown

I have been given the opportunity to throw my baby brother a bachelor party sometime after new year's and given the fact that he is an avid ice fisherman (as are the majority of the people who will be attending) I thought that a weekend on the ice would be a good time.

Here is the catch....

There will be somewhere around 30 guys (and a couple of entertainer's at least one night) that will need to be accomodated.

Are there any resorts that would be able to accomplish this with sleeper houses? Would they want to? I was thinking about something like one very large house for central gathering/entertaining and a bunch of other houses for serious fishing, sleeping and the future father in-law.

I really want to throw a party that he will enjoy and he has already gave this as his top pick. Not to mention that he has to throw my bachelor party next summer!

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Flagship on Big Point has a couple of party houses they have been setting up. They are made up with 10' x 16' houses put together on the ice. The longest I saw was 64'. Plenty of room for a large group.

I recommend McQuoid's or Dickies. They both have huge houses and both will most likely make sure you are very well taken care of.

Classier and a bit more.

Party houses should be no problem - Even uses mobile homes on the ice.

I had my bachelor party on Mille Lacs last winter. It was a blast. We only the 8 guys in the wedding along so it was a much smaller crowd. Caught lots of fish. And it doesnt hurt that one of the best bars in the state is right in Garrison.

When fishing gets slow, go into Brainard and visit the Iron Rail. Good time. Put it this way, your dollar goes far there...

Dickies is great. They have huge 22 hole fish houses. They are also very nice people. Our group of 8-10 guys have been going through them for a few years for are "annual" fishing trip. I know its like $600 for the 22 holer for 48 hours. Not bad for Mille Lacs.

He he he...
This is my party and it sounds as though it will be exactly what I am looking for. Thanks for all of the feedback, it is greatly appreciated by Big Brown and myself.

I second the big "Thank You" from Heavy D. It looks like we are going to be going out of Dickie's the weekend of Feb 21 & 22. I realize that this is the weekend after walleye closes but if we went over Valentine's day I think that it really wouldn't be considered a bachelor party because there wouldn't be a wedding!

      Lonny or if someone else can answer do you charge more in Sept to make the special trips or is it the standard rate.  Also on a side note took my two citified nieces up there over the 4th for the day and we absolutely killed the Small mouth and even got a bonus trout, they have both asked when the next time we are going up there.  10 and 7.   Tumy  Also depends on what you are looking for, the bass fishing will be fantastic find island cast around said island catch 25 bass. HAH  The bluegills might be a little deeper that time of the year.  Walleyes I have two spots I would try that time of year but have never had much success in July and August, that also might be I do it for an hour and 5 pound small mouth start dancing through my head.

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.
