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

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
