Log Cabin Hideaways

12 posts in this topic

My friends and I stayed with Steve and Liz of Log Cabin Hideaways this past weekend and had a great time. Beautiful place on Birch Lake. We only saw one other boat on the whole lake in three days. That might have had something to do with intermittent downpours. We caught enough fish to keep us occupied during the non-rain times.The smallmouth were a blast. Thanks to Finnbay and anyone else for the info they provided before the trip and thanks again to Steve and Liz. I can't wait to get back up there.

I love that Birch Lake cabin! Really secluded in that little bay. If you ever get the chance, try the Sun Dew cabin. No lake but awesome winter getaway.

Sun Dew is sweet. Spent a weekend there in March. As chunky said, no lake, but there is a nice patch of open water surrounded by bog out the front window.

I believe Sun Dew has the wood fired hot-tub also. I'm already looking at February with the kids and a couple friends. It's either that or the Eelpout festival. grin.gif

Yep, that's the one. Takes awhile to get the ice melted off and the water warmed up, but it it SWEET, and right next to the deck of the house. grin.gif

Don't take your kids to the Pout.

I would agree. The Pout Festival is not a place for children. Although it can be quite a hoot for adults!

threeball,

Yeah I've done my share of "pouting" in Walker! The last year I went was about 7 or 8 yrs ago and Boogie Wonderland was playing disco music in big tent on the ice. I won't go into details but that was a pretty crazy night.

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
