East Grand Forks Lodging

6 posts in this topic

Let’s say a couple of guys might be in the area for a local contest in the early part of August. ;\)

Please recommend some decent hotels in the area. Preferably within walking distance of some food and adult beverages with ample parking for boat trailer.

Thanks

dtro,

It's funny- I grew up 8 miles from there, but I've never stayed at a hotel/motel in Grand Forks or East Grand Forks in my life. So... I've never paid much attention to that. Hopefully somebody will chime in with suggestions. If not, I'll make a call and get a suggestion or two.

You'll probably be needing one that has a turbo shower to remove any catfish slime that you accumulate over your stay, huh?

That's a pretty safe assumption grin.gif

EGF doesn't have much for hotels. They do have the big new campground right off the river that is pretty popular if you are interested in that sort of thing. There's a best western in downtown GF that would only be a few blocks from the catfish tournament HQ as well as many bars but I wouldn't say it has 'ample' parking although I can't imagine you'd have much trouble. Other than that there are pretty much the usual chains - days inn, holiday, ramada, holiday inn express. There is also the big new Canad Inn that is attached to the Alerus Center that has a big water park that I hear is pretty nice if you are bringing kids or whatever. It also has a bar or two and a couple restaurants in it.

Thanks UMC

Looks like there is a Motel right near Cabelas that might work for us. I think it's called the Plaza or something like that.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
