Seasonal Resort - Aitkin Area

Recommended Posts

NoviceFishingDad

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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
