They've been in business for many years. You can't do that without providing good service.

Yes the have connections to Basswood as they operate the truck portage into Basswood.

There are other resorts on Basswood too.

Is there any particular question you have as to resorts on Moose lake.

My family has been staying at La Tourell's on Moose Lake for the last 20 yrs.

Clean modern cabins with air conditioning added last year. Basswood permits available with advance notice. Don't want to turn this thread into a commercial but, I've had good experiences there.

the goal is to rent a boat, motor and cabin, and fish Basswood and other lakes that may connect if that's possible. Looking for a place that fits the bill. Thanks for the help!

Although jeep can be a bit salty at times.....Latourells is a great establishment. I worked the portages for a couple of years before they brought the jeep's(bronco's) back onto the portages. Love those guys (and gal's) up there. Great people and great resort.

Latourells, has everything your looking for.

Portage cost is 20 bucks round trip. You drive on the trailer and drive off.

I have used them for a couple canoe trips and they are very good. As Surface has said you got no worries with them. If you want to rent boats and etc make your reservation long before you go. motorized permits are harder to get.

I want to thank everyone who put their 2 cents in...I appreciate the advice....I still dont know for sure what the boys will want to do, but I'm more familiar now with routine and costs, etc....how's the fishing between Moose and Basswood, namely Sucker and New Found??

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
