Walleye Retreat.......

5 posts in this topic

Any experience with this "Walleye Retreat" resort? We are planning a trip in January, and really want some to get into some fish & still have a decent cabin. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

My in-laws have stayed with them twice in the past 3 years and both times were very pleased with the service and accomodations. They did pretty well on the fish, enough for a couple meals and a few to bring home. And if i remember their rates were very reasonable.

In my limited experience on the south shore (have mainly fished out of the Angle in years past) I would strongly condsider bringing a portable for moving around during the day. We once hole-hopped from Long Point all the way to Starrens shoal south of Garden in a day, and it seemed that each time we stopped and popped new holes we'd pick up a handful of fish and then it would slow up. Move, drill, fish, move, drill, fish. Was a really fun day as was warm enough to fish off the sleds most the day.

Pete and Teri run a good fishing camp. The cabins are right on the water--make that ice--and it's a short hop out to the lake at the Morris Point gap. Pete moves his houses often and does a good job of staying on the fish. I think the cabins are booked up regularly for weekends but maybe the gas thing will have fewer people driving to LOW.

Good luck.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
