North of Balsam

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, my bro has a place 10 miles north of Balsam on scenic 7 and was suppose to make it up there this weekend for some deer hunting. with the storm coming opted for next week. Any spearing lakes in that area to make a good combo trip? I only spear 2-4 lbs for pickling. There are alot of lakes in this area, but some/most are boggy/cloudy. Any help? Thanks, Joe

Jig, hey thanks for the info, drive by it and always wonder? Brother has had the place for about 7 years, he's retired now lives there permantly. I'm 300 miles away and so jealous, but I get free stays. We have fished a bunch of lakes in that area, trying to get to know them but most are stained. This will give us a starting point. Thanks.

That can be good, but it's pretty dirty and hard to see. I'd try wabana. Crystal clear and there's some monsters in there, along w/ plenty of 2-10lbers

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
