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.

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!

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
