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??

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...
