Dickies Portside 1st timer

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am heading up to stay at Dickies in a 4 bunk 8 hole shack on Feb 7-9. Can you tell me if there is a reason that they are the cheapest rentals on the lake. Is it worth it to spent more and go to another resort?? I will have my wife and another couple along and want to be comfortable and hopefully catch some fish. What can you tell me about Dickies??? Good and bad. Thanks Solid Ice

Yes, you could find a little more luxurious shack to stay in but, Dickies customer service is hard to beat! The shacks will have 4" foam for bunks so if your bringing the women along you'd better bring the sheets.

SI...Dickie's is average or slightly below average in my opinion. I rented from them last year and the year before and thought they're rental's were sub-par (low ceilings, heater didn't work one time, house was in too shallow of water, etc...I just rented from the Red Door last week (4 bunk, 8 hole) and the house was much better than Dickie's. The house was situated on the edge of a mud flat which is usually a good spot, however, no luck this time. Just my opinion, but I'd check around and see what else is available first.

Dickies is pretty bare-bones. I was just in one of their 8-bunk houses this weekend. Fine for 8 smelly guys, but might be a little too rustic for the ladies.

If you're bringing the wives and want them to go again, I'd go to McQuoids. VERY nice Super8 houses. Plenty of room for four people. Plush, carpeting, warmer than you ever need, vaulted ceiling for space in upper bunks, CLEAN, seperate bathroom, regular matteress for the beds. First class if you ask me. And, no, I have no relationship to McQuoids. Just think it was a first class experience.

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
