Mille Lacs Motel?

7 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone has stay at this motel? Me and my cousin are trying to get up to Mille Lacs the last weekend. Really wanted to hit the big pond more this year but I just didn't have the money to. But I am just trying to find a cheap motel to stay at for 2 nights so that we can fish Mille Lacs. Its going to suck if I can't get up their to fish this winter!! If anyone else knows of any cheap but decent motels let me know. Thanks!

I'm talking like $50 or cheaper a night! I would love to come up there and rent a sleeper house but with all this cold that we have had the past couple of weeks has really put a damper on work for me. We are basicaly looking for somewhere to sleep. We planned on just fishing with the portables over the weekend!

Delta,

I would call Fishermans Wharf, Red Door, Twin Pines, Fishers Resort, and I know that Garrison has a motel behind the Blue Goose. I do not know all their rates though. I hope that this will help you out?

Fish On!!!

i stay at Scenic bay motel alot, very nice people and around 50$ a night, but renting a shack for 12 hours from 8 to 8 for sleeping can even be cheaper, i usually do that at the red door, got some nice bonus eyes last time i was up. and cost was 40$. grin.gif

I agree with TRZ. If you can consolidate fishing and lodging you could have the best of both worlds. If you're mobil and using portables you could headquarter at the shack, sleep and cook there plus explore. Hope your trip works out. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
