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.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
