resorts with decent houses?

12 posts in this topic

planning on going up the last Thursday of the month and was wondering if anyone knows a decent resort that has sleeper houses. Finally convinced my wife to go up. Are there any rentals out on 8-mile flat? Any info would be greatly appreciated as she is always happier when she's catching fish (who isn't?) wink.gif

Since your wife is going and I'd suspect you'd want a nice cozy house, I'd go with McQuoids or Macs Twin Bay. Ask for their 2 for 1 deal too.

I'll also give a thumbs up to McQuoids. They have very clean houses and take good care of you while you're out there. My wife and I went up there with some other friends and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of the housese. You may end up paying a little more but it's all worth it.

I'll Ditto the vote on McQuoids. Very nice houses. Used to rent from them all the time. We now have our perm out of Macs Twin Bay, they are great people. They also have indoor facilities (pottie rooms) this keeps the ladies happy especially at -20 to-30 degrees. grin.gif Good luck, Bill

I like your avatar Chevy. Personally I like what Randy did in that picture. After all the packer fans didn't let up at all after last weeks ordeal.

that goes double for me! Thanks for all the ideas everyone, at least now I have some places to call. The wife is starting to get cold feet on the trip so I will have to convince her that the house will be nice!

Use the "Resort Locator" up on the top of this page. Find McQuoid's link and take a look. And, she'll be convinced pretty easily. Also, the place will be warm and ready for your arrival.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
