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??

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
