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!

      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!
    • Wakemup
      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.
