Any opinions on Ships Wheel resort?

Recommended Posts

J Thunder

Heading up to LOW in a couple weeks and am considering a couple of resorts, anyone have an opinion on Ships Wheel? Cabins OK, in a good location for Spring fishing, etc?

Thank you!

I know the people at Ships Wheel and they seem like they are

hard working people who have learned the lake real well. I have

stayed there a couple of times and the cabins seem fine.

They are on the river upstream a ways. Remember everyone gets

on and off the lake in the same area. You have a bit of a ride

to get to the lake but nothing off putting.

You will have a good time.

Curt,

Thanks very much, we've stayed at Zipple before and did enjoy that. I think we will try "Ships" for the sake of trying something different.

i stayed there this winter for the first time and enjoyed my stay very much. very nice people and the cabins are nice for as cheap as they are. If you bring up a group of 6 or more people you can stay in the big cabins which looked very nice and are next to brand new.

Deerslayer! I did book with them for a stay in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it!! Is it a long drive to their houses? I notice they are down the river a bit.

Thanks very much for your input!

they go out of morris so its about 5 miles to the lake and then whatever distance out on the lake they are right now. Have a blast and let me know how you did when you get back.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
