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.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
