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

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
