Seasonal Resort - Aitkin Area

7 posts in this topic

My family and I currently have a park model on a resort on Osakis and am looking to move it to the Aitkin area. Anyone know of any good resorts in the area? I have two young boys so something family friendly would be best.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Crappie Keith

My name is Eric Anderson and I have a cabin up on Big Sandy Lake, and since there are no bass on Big Sandy, I was wondering if you could tell me of any lakes near (Big Sandy and McGregor Area) that hold some nice sunfish and largemouth bass. P.S. i did not care for all those people rippin on you on some of those older posts! thanks for any advice/info

Eric

That's not entirely true.

Up in Aitkin lake ther are some monster bucket mouths.Big gills too.

Rat lake has some big bass in it. Try the backside or north end of the lake.

Minnewawa has a bunch of bass & nice gills.

Work those cabbage patches this time of year.

Wilkins,French,Gun& Fleming have decent bass & gill action.

I am normally doing eyes right now ,but as it gets warmer I like to toss some buzzers or casting spooks looking for that top water explosion.

Get up with me & we can go to some spots I know.

I could run a guy ragged in a days time.

Thanks CK. I will check them out. We were up in the area all day on Saturday looking at cabins. We looked into Hickory lake, but I think the lake is just a little small. Looked at the 3 lakes up north (near Palisade) that you seem to frequent but did not find the right fit yet.

We are not sure if we should do the cabin or stay on at a seasonal so we are looking at everything.

Thanks again!

Hickory is a small busy lake.

There are better choices.

Call Ruby's resort on Farm Island to see it is still operating.They might have a spot for a seasonal set up.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
