Ice Fishing Rentals in Alexandria Minnesota
I'm Interested in Your Rentals
Ice fishing rentals in Minnesota are everywhere.
Minnesota has over 10,000 lakes, 11,842 at last official count, and these lakes provide a great opportunity for ice fishing. For 4 to 5 months out of the year, these lakes are ice covered. And therefore, require gear and equipment and accommodations. Ice fishing rentals in Minnesota are a good way to experience the winter season and the frozen Minnesota lakes. We can help.
Are you new to ice fishing? If you’re just looking for a few hours, or a day, to give it a try, we can provide you with all you need to achieve that. All of the ice fishing gear can be daunting but we’ll help take the mystery out of it. Rods, reels, bait, techniques and even some good ice fishing games you can play while you’re waiting for the fish to bite – we can help with all of that.
If you live in the Alexandria area, are visiting, or just looking for somewhere different to go fishing for walleyes – let us help you. We’ll do our best to get you setup and to meet your expectations.
With over 10,000 lakes in Minnesota, you’d expect lots of options, and choices, about where to go ice fishing. And granted, there’s three or four key areas that get persistent attention:
Mille Lacs Lake
Mille Lacs is Minnesota’s second-largest inland lake, at just over 132 thousand acres. It gets a lot of attention and significant interest for winter fishing. Ice fishing rentals on Mille Lacs are available through many resorts – as they continue to work to overcome tight restrictions and a declining walleye fishery. Population levels remain at the lowest point in 40 years.
Upper Red Lake
Upper Red Lake is 120 thousand acres, 48 thousand of which are Minnesota jurisdiction and fishable. Ice fishing rentals on Red Lake are also available through many resorts and tend to see lots of interest in the early part of the winter fishing season.

Lake of the Woods
Lake of the Woods occupies parts of Ontario, Manitoba and Minnesota. It’s large, clocking in with 65 thousand miles of shoreline and would be the the 6th largest freshwater lake in the U.S. if it were entirely located within the border. Ice fishing rentals on Lake of the Woods are handled by many large resorts located at the mouth of the Rainy River near Baudette.
These three lakes are the epitome of “Looking for the big fish in the big pond.” Most rental ice fishing shelters are handled by large resorts.
