A Big Thank You to Jerry from Battle River Lodge

10 posts in this topic

I just wanted to post a HUGE thank you to Jerry at Battle River Lodge for the excellent accommodations that he provided for us during our stay for Slabfest. There's nothing like staying out in the middle of nowhere with all of the amenities of home, yet in a rustic, and beautiful setting. It is the perfect solution for 8 - 10 guys looking to do a little fishing and relaxing.

Thanks again Jerry we will be back again for sure smile.gif

I highly encourage anyone that's looking for a really nice and comfortable place to stay near Upper Red to check them out. You can also feel free to e-mail me and I can answer any questions that you may have laugh.gif

I would agree with the Lodge. It was a fantastic place to stay at out in the country. One could not beat it.

Also very nice that he had us plowed out so early in the morning.

A+++ service. cool.gif As far as I am concerned we could book it already for next year.

I would like to echo what Paul posted, it was nice to get away and relax with a good group of guys, along with nice accomadations. The large kitchen made it easy to throw a meal together and left plenty of room to eat and BS.

Thanks for the clean and neat accomadations Jerry and may we see you next year!

Yes, thanks Jerry. Huge 3 level rustic log cabin yet clean and modern with all the comforts of home. Battle River Lodge is just the ticket for large groups but comfy enough for a couple. Jerry owns the store and lives nearby for those items you run out of and I believe he rents ice houses too.

Awesome stay. And, I believe it's right next to a snowmobile trail also.

It was very cool to be plowed out before the sun came up.

We rented a 4-man sleeper a few weeks ago from Battle River Lodge. Matt and Jerry Smischney took very good care of us and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Slabby,

They are located a few miles west of Kelliher. They run the general store in Suam. The lodge is located 2 blocks from the store. If you look at there site it will show you a general area map. On the map where it says Suam is exactly where they are located.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
