      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

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??

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
