Fishin' Shacks of Minnesota - Grand Rapids
We Are A Professional Operation With Customer Service That Makes You Feel Like You Are The Only Group On The Lake.
Family Friendly, Clean, Neat, Safe, and Warm!
Fishin' Shacks of MN offers sleeper shacks and "hot spot" day shacks in the famed fishing waters of Minnesota's Itasca County. Itasca County has over 1000 lakes and because of the amount of fishing opportunities surrounding us, we can have you fishing multiple species, multiple lakes, and truly customize your fishing experience.
We are centered around Grand Rapids, MN, 3 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul. That means no more long drives, but just far enough to get away. Grand Rapids not only offers amazing fishing opportunities, but some of the best snowmobiling trails and routes in the entire state! We also have great restaurants and other activities to suit everyone in the group/family.
We can accommodate any group size, with Shacks that fit 2 people (6 holes, 8'x12'), 4 people (10 holes, 8'x18'), or 6 people (12 holes, 8'x24'). If your group is larger than 6 people, no problem, we will group up shacks to sleep everyone. All of our Sleeper Shacks include: Rattle reels (bring your favorite lure), bunk beds with mattresses, Heat, Chairs, BAIT, plowed ice roads, an in-house bathroom area, stove, Carbon Monoxide detectors, and pre-drilled holes. We have moved out of the stone-age and have only electric lights (Shacks are ready for your Generator with 110v lights and outlets as well as LED lights with deep cycle batteries (provided), no more gas lights as a safety precaution. As you see from our interior pictures, all shacks are done right, with comfortable bunks, and full-sized, double pane, gas filled windows to let the light in and keep the frost out!
What Sets Us Apart:
We can customize your trip with a variety of options to best suit your needs. We offer sleeper shacks on lakes for Walleyes, Crappies, Bluegills, Northerns, and Lake Trout. Many of our Shacks will catch multiple species out of the same holes. We also offer day trips when you rent our Sleeper Shacks to any of the above species, along with fishing for Trophy Bluegills, Rainbow Trout (along with various other trout species), and Darkhouse Spearing Northern Pike. For example, come fish a Sleeper Shack of ours for Walleyes (we specialize in evening/night/morning bites), and take a drive over to another spot or another lake to target crappies during the day (or rent a darkhouse and spear northerns all day!).
We are constantly moving our Shacks between different lakes and spots as the fishing picks up or slows down. We fish all week before clients arrive so that we know exactly what they are biting on, the correct presentation, and that our Shacks are in the right spots.
Most of our lakes have NO SLOT LIMIT and you can KEEP A FULL MINNESOTA LIMIT OF EACH SPECIES.
We have an ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING POLICY inside the shacks. NO EXCEPTIONS.
We have specifically designated Shacks for groups that want to bring pets, along with Shacks that we do not allow pets into (in case of future guest allergies).
We clean the shacks with a bleach solution after every group, and let it drop below freezing to verify sanitary conditions prior to your arrival (with the Shacks back to 70 degrees at that time).
We keep the number of Shacks we run low so that we can maintain GREAT customer service. Over half of our bookings each season are from returning past guests.
