first time at Dickies

Recommended Posts

Red

7 of my buddies and I head to Mille Lacs every winter for a couple long weekends away from the women and ice fishing (boozing). This year we decided to try out Dickies for house rentals. Has anyone had any luck there recently? Last year we only caught some pout at Scenic Bay. We wanna get some eye's and perch this year. Any advice would be appreciated. Or stop by the ice house (I have no idea which one) for cocktail hour which starts when we arrive and ends when we leave.

Fished all weekend off of road B out of Dickies. Only got two 6" 'eyes and one 7" perch. Marking little perch constantly. Fished Sloppy Joes Saturday evening...nothing in 28'. Gonna have to move the shack out deeper I think. I saw a few slot eyes come off of Hennipen though.

My bros and some friends will be at Dickies this weekend. We've been there a couple of times before and always had a great time. We've tried other resorts, but Dickies is the best. Never caught much fish, but we party like rock stars!! We'll be in shack #35. Stop by and have a beer with us. Hope some of you guys. ROCK ON!!

Alright some fellow members heading up on the 31st.(HURRAY MY BIRTHDAY!!!)Best present ever would be a 32in. wally-gator. But anyways me and 11 other, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,individuals will be out there to, sound like we will be neighbors. Im sorry, but take no responsibility. I'm in for some serious fishin though, I'm bringing my portable and gear so stop by, have a gallon or two of beer and we can venture out. I have a grey F1-50 with a toolbox on it.


Let hook up, and get shook up.

      No change from the weekend. We've barely been able to drop down to 20 for overnight lows this week. Not losing but definitely not gaining. 9-11 inches with a few spots still with a little less. We'll lose a fair amount of the 3 inches of lake snow over the next 2 days.

      This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

      That sounds like me. All week I’ve been slowly dragging along, felling terrible. But I go fishing no matter how I feel.

      Had a plan to get out today with a good partner but he came down sick.  Still keeping the day off from work and catching up on gear maintenance and get a couple new set ups going.  Will get out this afternoon to check one of two lakes that were on my hit list last year I never made it to.  Tomorrow I might connect with a buddy in the Aitkin area.   Good luck All. 🙂

      Any update on ice thickness?
    • BobT
      The ice around here is extremely unpredictable; 12" here and 6" just a short distance away and even open water. I've seen vehicles out but unless you've checked the ice yourself along the entire path you plan to take, I wouldn't do it. 
    • CJH
      I think there is a new Meatstick out for about $40.  I haven't seen them in person yet, so I can't tell you how good they are.

      I’m loading up the wheeler in the morning. I’ll throw the otter in the truck and planning on slaying the perch, gills, crappies and maybe pike. Should be a good day to test out the new auger mounts for the ATV. Planning to stay Mobil for a few hours then setup the hub and be comfortable. I’ve fished the lake I’m going to a few times this year already and have done well. Last time out there we had abou 7-1/4” ice so last I hear there was 10-11”. So should be plenty good for atv traffic as there’s zero snow on most lakes anymore.

      Awesome! Good luck! We saw some light portables being brought out by ATV last Friday on the N and W sides.

      Was out Thursday drilling holes on Lake 1. The whole northern half of the lake I found 9 to 10 inches. Very consistent. Drilled about 20 holes.😁😂
