Dude, check out Highbanks on Winnie. No kiddin, it's a great place.

I'd recommend Life Of Riley Resort on Lake Vermilion.

Lots of good family times. The resort is located on a 2-1/2 mile long bay, and boat traffic is usually not an issue.

Nice beach, kids activities, boat rentals, dock service and fish cleaning included, pet friendly (I always bring my retrievers), great Lake Vermilion fishing (Walleyes, Sunnies, LM Bass, Smallies, Northerns, Muskies), there's also a weekly fishing seminar.

We've been travelling there from the St. Louis, MO. area since 1988. We'll be back up the first week of June.

Rock and Lee are great hosts, and want you to have a good time. They have a dining hall for meal plans or the occasional meal when you don't want to cook!

Check with them to see if they have a cabin to fit your needs in your time frame. If you get in touch tell them that Chris and Cindy Fox sent you along and that we say Hi!

Just run a search on the resort name, it'll pop up. If you want to know more e-mail me at the address in my signature.

Good luck, hope you find the place that's right for you!

I'd also reccomend Winnibigoshish... But I'd go with either Williams Narrows, Bowen Lodge, or the Eagles Nest out of Cut Foot Sioux... That way if the weather gets rough, and Big Winnie turns into a nightmar of 5 foot rollers, you've got your home base back in the safe 2000 acres of Cut Foot Sioux to fish.

I have links but I don't know if they fly with site policy.

Go to the sportsman show in Minneapolis. Not sure when it is, but it will be soon. A few places have show specials if you book on the spot.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
