Does anyone have any experiences with this resort? Is it comparable to Ballards or Schuster's? We are heading up this winter and have yet to decide on a resort. Thanks.

I have not been to the other 2 but for the past few years I have been staying at Border View with no complaints.

Smaller operation???????? You must be thinking of a different place. Border View is average or bigger compared to the rest of the resorts size wise; plus they own a nearby pheasant hunting preserve. I stayed there about a month and half ago when the Rainy was still open, and was very impressed with the service. We had a couple meals there too, and the food was really good and reasonably proced. I'm sure you'll be happy with your stay there. Good luck, we'll look for a report.

Nice place, been there twice in 5 years time. Why? They are cordial have a clean lodge, the rooms are affordable and the service has been great! I found them before I ever found this site. Now I am hovering and looking at the other posts and looking into some of the site sponsors because I feel I need to support the businesses that help put this site on the net and keep it running. Bottom line, nicely run place but I have nothing else to compare it to in the area. Good luck and good fishing!

Thanks for the info guys! We have narrowed it down to Ballards and Border View. Two top notch resorts from the sounds of it. We are not going until early February so hopefully the fishing is still going strong.

This January will be our second year where I take my 81 year old father. The vehicles they use to get you out on the ice all float (important given other resorts have gone through the ice - (I think(?) it was last year that they lost a few people) and the guides are funny and great! They check on you all the time to make sure you are catching fish. Last year when it was slow they moved us around to keep us on fish. Also, with the meal package you order anything you want off of the menu -- my dad was partial to the ribeye's. Good food, great service, great accommodations. These guys are A++

I've stayed a Borderview a couple of times and found the resort to be on par with just about everyone else. They have a pretty good resturant that serves everything from full course meals to hamburgers and pizza. I wouldn't hesitate about staying there again.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
