g'eye pilot

non-fishing question

7 posts in this topic

Southern Mn g'eye pilot here... Does anyone know of a horse backing riding outfit in the Grand Rapids - Winni area (or nearby?) I've been surfing around the tourism sites, and not coming up with any concrete connections. Looking for a couple alternative activities for the cabin/fishing vacation next week. How about water parks, anything of that nature in the neighborhood? Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

G'eye, I don't know about horseback but go to the little park service building on 43 a few miles north of gosh dam place just past the bridge over little cutfoot they have different area attractions pamphlets. We did it last year it was pretty interesting to see the old CCC camps there was also a driving loop that had different things to see one was an old fire tower to climb up very very cool you can see a long ways. Hope this helps

Thanks HIGHBANKS, really appreciate the info... I tried the Double K outfit, but seemed to have a bum phone #. I'll have to double check the #.

I hope to get over to Winni for at least one day trip during our stay at the cabin. How much do you charge to launch a boat??? Hopefully I'll run into you.

Yeah - I tried the number myself and got some wierd BEEP! So I investigated a little further and found out that the business was sold off in May!! Maybe try the Deer River business - they are brand new in the area and offer riding services.

If you get a chance stop by the lodge and introduce yourself!! Launch is $10.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
