Well it has been quiet a few years since I have stayed there. Nice quaint cabins kept clean. Lodge is nice and Kris is a great host (I believe she still runs it, hear she may have moved south). I was usually up in spring for the river so business was slow and not alot of people. The only complaint that I have had is, I was not happy with the Ice house rental we had about 5 years ago, But it's been a long time and We where the first people in thier house that winter so thing are probably better now. My in-laws rented a charter thru them 3 summers ago and had a blast the captian was great they said.

I would not hesitate going back in future.

Awesome place. I found them through Fishing Minnesota and booked three days with them in January and caught real nice fish. This was the first time I have ever been to lake of the woods and I am addicted. I am scheduled to go next Sunday through Tuesday by my self and cant explain how excited I am. There cabins are first rate and the people including the guides are fantastic. I would recommend fishing during the day and staying at the resort at night. LOW is not a very good night bite lake.

Hey Ralph aren't you staying at Riverbend not Riverview? They aren't the same just letting you know.

euorlarva: I too was sure that you were at Riverbend, not Riverview in January. I do know that you're headed to Riverbend next week. Bill

We stayed at riverview for 4 days 3 nights in december and had a great time. Great cabins, awesome bar with great food and stiff drinks, and a handfull of guides that had us on top of fish the entire time we were there. Between 8 guys we caught around 70-80 fish in one weekend including a 25", 27" walter, and a ton of good eaters. I would definetly recommend riverview resort for a good time.

Man when you get old you go blind. Either that or something else caused the blindness. You are correct I am staying at Riverbend not riverview. Sorry for the confusion.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
