Our Overnight Program – 2017 Schedule

Kids Overnight ProgramParticipants under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult for the overnight program.

What to Expect

Once you arrive to either Red Lake or Lake Mille Lacs, one of the Big Fish and Fry staff will take you out to your house. After unpacking all your gear, our staff will give you the rundown on how everything in the house works. We will also provide you with all the bait and gear needed to catch fish. While our staff will not be staying in the same house as you, we will be in a different house nearby and will check in frequently to make sure everything is going well. Fishing out of these ice houses is like fishing in your living room. It doesn’t get any better!

Some of the things you will experience while living on the ice for 3 days…

  • Catching fish on rattle reels. There is nothing like a “fish on” alarm clock!
  • Catching fish on poles
  • Catching fish on tips ups
  • Fish Fry on the ice
  • Beautiful Scenery

Ice Fishing Day ProgramWhat to Bring

Our overnight program is kind of like going to camp. You will want to pack enough items for 2 nights/ 3 days. While the ice houses are warm enough to sit in shorts and a tee shirt, you will want to bring warm clothes for exploring outside of the houses. We will supply all of the gear and bait needed for catching fish, but don’t forget the following items:

  • Sleeping Bag/Pillow
  • Toothbrush
  • Clothes for 3 days
  • Jacket
  • Snow Pants
  • Boots
  • Board Games/ Cards
  • Food/Drinks
  • Camera

Red Lake

ChazThe overnight program on Red Lake will be run through a guide by the name of Chaz Dobias. Chaz has been a professional angler since 2010 and really knows how to fish! Take a look at his website for proof of that: firstcityguide.com

Chaz recently bought 4 brand new Ice Castle fish houses, which means our participants will be fishing and sleeping in style!

Catching walleye on Red Lake is almost a certainty, and Chaz will provide a fish fry dinner for each group on one of the nights. Yum!

Each house can sleep 3-5 people
