3 Days & 2 Nights....

12 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a place to go with my wife for our one year anniversary. It would be July 20-22, Fri-Sun. I was thinking the Walker area would be a nice place to go for an extended weekend. I would prefer something on the lake with a A/C room and a hot-tub. I'm sure the casino has nice rooms, but I would like something more private, if you get my drift ooo.gif. Room rates need to be reasonable, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker if the place was worth it.

Anybody have some suggestions for me?

I stopped by and checked out Trappers landing while on Leech over the 4th. Seemed to be a real nice place. They were working on some new condo's on the west end, but the cabins appeared to be in real nice shape. Didn't go inside.

The food was great at Beachfire grill. We only had burgers, but I heard everything else was great too. Service was the best we had up there.

We also stopped in Trappers Landing and had just the opposite experience. We had the worst service we have ever had at any establishment. The bartender wasn't to be found. When she would come around, it was like pulling teeth to get her to pour us a beer. She told us she didn't want to be there and that since she lived onsite, she always had to work. She left to shower and left the bar unattended. At times it took about 30 minutes to get a beer and we were the only group in the bar/restaurant. I had to go upstairs to ask another lady, who was actually pretty nice, to serve us. We asked for a couple pickles and she reluctantly gave us some, but said not to ask for anymore. Anyway, I doubt I will ever step foot in the place. I just can't justify spending over $100 again in a place where you don't feel like you or your business is welcome.

Northlander,

Looks like I won't be able to give you a report. I had to push our trip back until August 24th - 26th. I'd appreciate if you could post a report on your trip though.

Northlander, he has taken care of this in a very professional manner. I retract all the comments I made regarding Trapper's Landing and the experience we encountered. Maybe we just were in there on a bad day? Either way, I would like to thank Tom Linderholm and Robin Bucholz for their "over the top generousity". We ate at Trapper's Landing last Thursday and I can honestly say it was the best food we ever had. I would highly recommend visiting their restaurant if anyone is in the Leech Lake area. Robin personally waited on us and the service was second to none. Once again, thank you Tom and Robin, we will definitely be back soon!

I know Tom and his crew aim to run a very customer friendly place to stay and eat. I can honestly say every place I have eaten at that Tom over sees has had very good food and great service. Tom doesnt accept average thats for sure.

Im glad Tom took care of this in a timely/ professional manner for you. I knew he would.

Well here is my Leech Lake Report for 13-16th of Aug. PERCH PERCH and more PERCH. It was nice to have action but no matter what I tried and how deep I was I only caught perch. Did manage a few small eyes but just couldnt hit a keeper to save my rear. I fished crawlers, leeches, cranks of every sort and even tossed some plastics.

Later I talked to a couple guides and they said the ever change in winds these past fews days has made it tuff.

One thing I can say from talking to many fisherman from the area is get out early and late and hit anyplace from 6' to 12' with a lindy and crawler combo and either drift it or slow troll it. Wind was tuff most of the time I was there and had my magnum sock out to kep on the spots long enough to hit a few fish.

Oh well it was great experience and the food at Trappers Landing more than made up for my lack of walleye catching ability.

BIG Lake and beautiful. Tons of reefs to fish. I probably only saw 1/20th of the lake in 3 days. Ill be back next year for my walleye revenge. tongue.gif

Those who live close have a real Gem.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe

      Buddy was checking a few lakes yesterday and found 4.5" on a small lake on "White" ice and when he went to the "Clear" ice it was 2.5-3.5"  He's hoping around today to see what he can find but he's not expecting too much.  Few shallow protected lakes were covered so it'll only be time.

      I know a lot can change, but what are the odds with this upcoming weather that we will be making our scheduled ice fishing trip that would start on Wed (14th) using 4 mile bay to get out to the lake?
