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??

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
