Where can I rent an ice-fishing house?Where can I rent a fish house? - Wendy, New Prague, Minn.
It depends on where you want to fish. The best selection in fish houses — some are quite posh, with kitchenettes and multiple bunks — are on the big lakes: Mille Lacs, Leech, Lake of the Woods, Winnibigoshish.
Check local tourism web sites for resorts and marinas that rent fish houses. Mille Lacs lists six. Leech Lake lists three. In such fishing meccas as Lake of the Woods, which calls itself the Walleye Capital of the World, and Winnibigoshish, nearly every lodge and resort will help get you set up in winter.
But resorts or marinas on smaller lakes may be able to set you up, too — just use a search engine to find one.
If you have a date in mind, it's a good idea to reserve your fish house now.
