Talk to Dave at Fishermans Village on Deer Lake. Lots of Northerns, Great Bass fishing and lots of pan fish. Cabin are nice and Dave and Bev are great people.

They have a web sight if you like to check it out. It is the same as the name but with the . com.

Tell them Mike recomended grin.gif

South Turtle Lake Resort on South Turtle would fit your request. If you go in September, it could be pretty good for you with the big crowds gone.

I'll second the South Turtle Lake Resort, we stayed there with ALL the inlaws over memorial weekend this summer (though NOT with the intention of fishing, just for the youngest sibling's HS graduation) so I only got 1 good afternoon/evening of fishing in.

I did pretty well though (with no map/sonar) catching half dozen eat'n pannies, a couple small bass, a 18" slimer, the requisite perch and then a few more pannies.

I was just throwing a jig with a spinning propeller tipped with a worm or minnow.

Oh yeah the owner was nice and accommodating too!

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.

      The lakes on the road going into SJU are mostly open.  A very small amount of skim ice on the downwind side...I expect it'll be gone with the wind and rain and warmer temps tomorrow.   If you see someone out canoeing this weekend, it'll be me.
