Hey guys I am planning a trip to the Minocqua area to ice fish in late Feb. early March. What I am looking for are places to stay, that are (in order) reasonable, comfortable and clean. I don't want to stay at a $100+ night hotel, but don't want to sleep in a craphole either. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Please PM me with any information . Thanks in advance!

TipDown! Cool

Fished Minocqua Sat late morning and afternoon. Tried several spots between Brewery and Schoolhouse....very slow. Managed only a couple undersized gills and small perch.

Tried deeper water 30-40 fow on Sunday AM. Same result. Marked lots of fish, could not get them to bite. My son and I left with only 10-12 keepers total. 13 inches plus of ice in the bays. Lots of trucks driving on Sunday. Good luck.

Thanks to all for the tips and pointers on fishing Minocqua. All in all, our group had a great time.

On Saturday, we targeted Stacks bay. We stayed away from the shanty village because we did not want to encroach. We nailed two nice Northern within the first 25 minutes. Then tip-up fishing died down, the rest of the group did very well on gills, no perch or eyes.

On Sunday, we targeted an area over by the Point resort. We put a bunch on northerns up, no eyes, one 3" perch which later lead to a nice northern. No eyes and no gill fishing today. Great day except when possibly the largest fish of the day got off at the hole. I'm never gonna live down not being able to tie a freaking knot.

Again, thanks for the help everyone. Good luck the rest of the season.

I was out on Stacks Bay on Saturday. We got gills and perch, but had to weed through them like usual. It's funny how one hole can be all perch and the next hole can be all gills. All the people who showed up at first light walked out, and then later in the morning people started driving out. Not enough ice for me to do that yet. Had a big dogfish swim up my hole too.

Harshawhunter - Why even post that? the chain of minocqua including tomahawk is some where around 6,500 acres. im sure you can get away from the typical stacks and school house bay crowd. Why dont you try that and maybe you will catch some fish

Just got back from minocqua. Did not see any trucks out on lake minocqua main lake basins. Trucks driving everywhere on Big Muskellunge though. Fishing terribly slow for perch on Minocqua and Buckskin. Few small walleyes on Musky.

Hello all....looking for an ice report.

Has there been any trucks driving on from the Thirsty Whale this week? Any traffic on the main lake basin East of the 51 bridge?

There were guys driving on at Stacks last weekend and we had a good 11 almost 12 inches of ice on Fri and Sat last weekend.

Thanks.
