Upper Red Lake Ice house rental
Some general observations I had were, had to pay a $10/day road pass to get out there. Roads were in great shape and I had no problem taking my car out there. Wish we would've had a generator. If you don't plan on bringing a generator you should bring a deep cycle battery and a backup flasher battery. Fish cleaning station at West Wind is decent and their bait prices were OK. Didn't eat but the bar food at West Wind looked good. If you don't like having a cold butt you should bring a little heater for the shared crapper.
Have fun and good luck! Hopefully I get back out to MN for a trip like that again next year.
have only stayed with porta villa, just remember that the houses are not always on fish and they typically only move all houses at 1 time. bring portables and drills along to move and find fish if need be. if you can prove you have a good spot they will most likely move your sleeper to that spot. plus at sundown into dark you can get on some very nice fish in close if the sleepers are out in deeper water. chris at porta villa will do all he can to make sure you have a great trip. i have also head tyler at bear paw is a very class act and is usually the first soul on the ice every year. and also does all he can to make sure you have a great trip on red. danny at outdoor authority is also a class act. have talked to him at rodgers refilling the minnow bucket and having a beer or two. good luck red is an awesome walleye factory always have a great week up there even if fishing is slow. some very very big northerns in this lake as well.
