buzzin for bass

Take a look at "North Star Lake Resort", should be able to find their website no problem if you type the name into a search engine. They are located on...you guessed it...North Star Lake near Marcell. Kid/family friendly is what they are all about. Great people and lots of activities for the little ones.

I'll second North Star Resort. We stayed there 6 years in a row when my kid's were young, 3 to 10 years old. Now they are 11 and 14 and they want to go back. The lake has good crappie and decent sunfish at least what I caught. Both kinds of bass are there plus northerns and muskie. The walleye stocking has made it a better walleye fishery than when we were there.

Moose Lake Resort is another great option, excellent walleye and muskie lake, great beach and nice people. They have a website if you google them.

Try Gus' Place on Ball Club too. Reasonable prices, good fishing for pike, walleye and panfish. Gus and Susan will take good care of you and help you out with the fishing.

While all of the resorts listed are great resorts I am a little partial to Lakewood Lodge as well. We are a kid friendly resort on a quiet bay of a great lake. We have a nice sand beach that we do treat for swimmers itch. As a matter of fact we just put an 8" sand blanket on top of the ice that will eventually fall to the bottom to help improve our beach area. We have lots of water toys and a new, big playground. We do offer kids activities throughout the week (prime summer season only) All our cabins also have cable tv in case there are periods where playing outdoors isn't possible. Ok, enough of the sales pitch. All of the resorts listed ARE good family resorts. You should visit all their websites including lakewoodlodge.com and find the resort that best offers what you are looking for, and has availability. If we do not have what you need but would like some assistance in finding a resort that does meet your needs feel free to call us and we will try to help.

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
