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.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
