before anyone commits, there is the link to the guy I use. the prices and pics of the ice shacks are included. I know nobody likes surprises.

twinislandsleepers.com

it's nothing fancy, but the fishing is usually pretty good throughout the day. plus, i'm pretty sure you won't lose weight. I normally plan on one night to eat out and get back to 'civilization'. there's a nice lodge not far away(arnesons resort)

thoughts?

Yari - are you thinking one of the 3-day/2 night packages?  Are people fishing right through the floor of the shack?  (yeah, some of us country folk don't get out much, sorry for the dumb questions)   Dang, that's within spittin' distance of Canada, you sure we wouldn't get trampled by all those liberals who are running for the border since Trump got elected?

mad- I was thinking 3 day. even for me, it's too far for just 2 days. if you are interested, extra days over 3 are $25 each.

yes, you fish through the floor. eat, fish, sleep... all in the same general space. it's kinda fun/different but you don't get cold. take a nap whenever you want. fish and cook at the same time. eat and fish. and of course, bs and fish all the time @--0--0105. it's definitely a guy thing. my wife doesn't get it @--0--0117 @--0--0117

the trip to the lodge for dinner is just to get out of the 4 walls and stretch your legs

not really. i think it would cost more for duluth as it's a small airport. mpls would be best

i get the cost and time thing for you guys. it's a heck of a long trip for a couple days and it's not cheap. i think it will be something you would remember forever. good or bad  @--0--0105 i don't know many people that can say they slept 3 days on the ice. i have to believe that number is near zero for you southern folks ^^&&$%GT

I'm still interested.  Wife's B-day is March 3 and daughter is home for spring break March 16, so would a slot in the middle somewhere be an option for any of you guys?

HM - you could drive up to Peoria, hop in with me & I'll haul us to Minneapolis area to meet up w/Yari & then ride together up to the arctic circle with him??

i'm open on dates. we could do a mid-week if that works better for you guys. less folks mid week

the temps shouldn't be bad in March. I don't think we will be below zero. definitely not -20 like in January anyway

$250 per person fee for the house
money for night out dinner
Food or food money?
Adult beverages?
regular beverages?
Someone better have a way to make coffee !!!
Fishing gear? I probably do not have any ice fishing gear...

Yari, you are in charge of making the "Bring this with you" list for each of us...
