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.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
