hog island whats going on do you live right on the island. I can not believe that the bait shop is not doing the shanties anymore. Did they sell them off to the farm? I used to live on that farm years ago and the house right across the street and down the road on the other farm.....jim s

the family that owns lakewood campground bought out the shanties a few years back they have their own access area now too hogs island bait has a few shanties but mostly for their family we have probably a dozen shanties and are planning to build more for this year  last time i heard there was little ice and the shanties will probably be on right after new years if all goes well

Holiday Harbor was a decent place, I never rented shanties from him but did rent a room off him years ago.

I've been going to Holiday Harbor the past few years.  Fishing has been O.K. always managed to get at least 1 pike > 8lbs but slow at times.  Nice shacks  & if your traveling you can rent a room there, clean & with a kitchen.  Never have to go on the the road at all.  They have had decent bait but I don't know how the new regs are going to affect that.  The Owners are good people.  I would definitely recommend it

I agree with sdog.  I rented a shanty  at holiday harbor for fifty bucks for the day and it included wood for the woodstove.  We caught 5 Pike and a few perch.  Nice people to do business with.  Great experience.  I Am planning on ging back this year.  Holiday harbor is located on Grande Island.  Bait selection was a bit poor.
