June Trip to Crane Lake

4 posts in this topic

I am planning a trip the end of June to Pine Point Lodge on Crane Lake. Wondering if anyone has stayed her before and what your experience was like? Also interested in how good the fishing is close by.

You do know their aren't any roads to PP. It's about a mile by boat. I like this alot. Really peaceful. Cathy & Jeff are wonderful. They will do all they can, along with their energetic staff, to do whatever it takes to make your stay a good one. Their cabins are just adequate, in my opinion, but we don't spend much time in them anyway. They are clean. If you are an average fisherman you can catch plenty of fish in Crane. Pike, walleyes, smallies, crappies & rarely a musky. The Vermilion River Gorge is a great place to fish & is literally five minutes away. Very scenic as well. You'll enjoy your stay there. Trust me. We've been going to Crane (PP various owners) since the '70s & haven't found a reason not to go there yet.

Have stayed at Pine Point twice, and I can confirm the previous post . . . .Kathy and Jeff are great, and are constantly upgrading the resort. Fishing Crane can be very good, and offer all the species and quantities your ability will allow you to catch. Be sure to get a McKenzie or Fisher map of Crane/Sand Point, as it will be of great help. Ask Jeff to mark the reefs, not so much for the fishing, but to keep your boat off of them . . . not all have markers! I'll be up that way the very first of June, and again later in the summer camping somewhere on Namakan, but I've always enjoyed my time at Pine Point.

Thanks for the info. June can't come fast enough. Can't wait to get out and explore the area.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
