Gene "Walter" Davis

4 posts in this topic

Hiya -

For those of you who have stayed, or just stopped in, at Maple Beach Resort, Gene Davis, whom many knew as Walter, passes away on Tuesday at the age of 54.

Walter was a local legend, and a wonderful guy. He'll be missed by many.

Services are at 2 PM saturday at Zion Lutheran

That is sad news. I didn't know him but I have seen him there. That place is one of the best to grab a burger after a day of fishing. I'm sure he will be missed by many.

I heard that the resort there was closing after this year. Does anyone know if there is any truth to that.

My grandma owns the farm right up the hill behind the resort and my great grandma owns the little house on the corner there of 108 and cross point road so we are very close with the davis's and phil who runs the grill. huntnfish- i do believe this was going to be his last year running the place. he was such a great guy and will be missed a lot.

Its a sad time for those of us that either knew Gene or often saw him around the lake/resort frown.gif. My parents told me of his passing while I was back on Lida over the 4th. The lake didnt seem complete without seeing him around. He was a loving person who often took the time to tell my wife and I where the fish were biting or what bait was the hot ticket. Maple Beach is one of the last great little MN treats....I would suggest visiting the grill before they close for good. frown.gif

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
