Any opinions on Ships Wheel resort?

6 posts in this topic

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!

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
