Monday I'm takin my little lady for a little two day fishing getaway. Any suggestions on a good lake within a few hours of Duluth. We plan on staying at a little dive motel for a few bucks or puttin up a tent. Any help with some hungry fish and a place to stay would great. Thanks!

DuluthMedic,

I can't tell you where to fish on this lake but if you need lake to choose from let me start out by suggesting Winnie. You should be able to find a place to stay between Deer River and Winnie itself.

I'm sure others may have a little more info. Hope you have good time on your trip.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

Hey thanks alot. I fished Winnie in the winter for the first last year, saw some really big eyes threw the spear hole. Maybe we will go there. Thanks!

If you want to pitch a tent I'd recommend Kabetogama. Island campsites all over and the fishing should be improving and moving toward a strong fall bite. Lots hiking trails. If you want to stay on shore Harmony Beach Resort on the east end has a nice campground. The owners are nice people and very helpful with the fishing information. There are several other resorts in the area as well

Bring your tent along and go inland (North) of the Cascade River. Fourmile, Wilson, Whitefish, Section 18, Toohey, Harriet all have eyes and most camping. Theres a few trout lakes in the area too.

If your up for camping check out Savannah Portage State Park near McGregor. There are a couple of lakes in the park. We caught largemouth and pike in one of the them (Shumway?) and there are trout in another (Loon?). I believe the lakes are electric motors only.

I just did the exact thing. Stayed at the Rambler Inn in I-Falls and fished Rainy Lake. Beautiful lake and a lot of nice fish. I didnt catch a bunch but I watched Fishmeister and his guys put on a clinic. If ya want more info e-mail me.

I agree with Surface Tension.

Hit the Sawbill trail.

Lots of nice lakes with few people.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
