Where to get "stuff" on the east side?

Recommended Posts

4 of us from work have reserved one of McQuoid's "executive" houses for the 2nd weekend of January. Anyone have any suggestions on bait/snacks/booze locations near there? Also - is there anyplace that rents Aqua-Vu cameras in the area?
Thanks in advance!

If you drive to the Southwest corner I believe Lundeens Tackle Castle will rent Aqua Vu's. Right across the street from Lundeens is a holiday gas station. There is also a grocery store and liquor store in Isle. Dickies Portside may also rent camera's.

Good Luck!

I agree with D-man Lundeen seems like you are intruding when you go in his store. I asked him how they were biting and he said how the hell should he know. I haven't been back since.

Also, In Isle right before you get to Maquoids there is a small grocery store and right next to that is a bar that has on/off sale as well. There prices are pretty good and it sure is convenient having them there so I always try and support the locals but you can do as you see fit. Less to pack also.

I would rather use only artificial than buy bait from lundeen's, that guy has been nothing but rude to me. Johnson's has great bait and has really given me some huge portions, and the way they have biten the last few years you've needed every shinner!

You can get groceries in the town of Isle just south of Mcquoids. It is an IGA grocery store and there is an on/off sale liquor store close by from there two.
The rental housed from McQuoids are nice, but you don't go out on the Lake from there. You head out on Twin Bay just north of McQuiods. Another good place to eat is Cataways up by Malmo, about a 9-10 mile drive. They have the best broasted chiken I have ever ate!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
