Icy Fishing in a Warm Shanty!

Due to vandalism of the ice house, the Meetup had to be resheduled. I hope you all can make it for the new date! ....

It's time to get on the ice and do some jigging! I've rented an ice house on Lake Minnetonka, for a 12 Hour rental on Sunday, Jan. 6th. We'll have it from 9:00am - 9:00pm, and can start fishing for those panfish 1st thing in the morning. We'll fish and hang for a while, have some lunch and get back to it for the late afternoon/evening bite.

 This is the same price we normally pay for 1/2 day (6 hrs) on the ice so doesn't matter if you just want to come for morning or afternoon/evening ... You may come or leave whenever you like up until 9:00pm!

Bring along some snacks, coffee, beverage and your ice fishing gear. (If you don't have any - you can rent it from this outfit, just let me know beforehand....)

Ice houses are pre heated, and holes are drilled prior to your arrival. Gasoline for the generator, and propane for the heater is provided in all rentals. Poles, bait, and tackle boxes available for an additional charge.

payment must be made here online by 1/2013 in order to hold your RSVP!

Info about the ice house:

1. Heated
2. Fully electrical
3. Surround sound speaker system
4. Include 6 fishing holes inside, can drill outside holes for tip ups
6. New (most built within the past 2 years) and were custom built for us
7. Have everything you need to stay warm, have fun, and catch fish!

We will meet at the BP Station in Spring Park @8:45am, where you can grab some bait (and license if you need to), and head to the landing just minutes down the road.
