Tumbleweed,

I grew up going to a place called Beacon Shores Resort on Lower Whitefish. It is a wonderful place to stay. Plenty of different size cabins to accomodate the size of your family. I have not been back as a guest for a number of years but have stopped in to visit a few times in the last year. Everything was still as I remembered. I have been trying to convince the wife that we need to vacation there as I had so much fun in years past.

I met a guy on Crosslake while up there ice fishing. He has two cabins on the lake that he rents privately. I can get you the phone number if you would like. I think the big cabin (lake home, not cabin) is about $1500 per week, and the small one (more rustic) is $500 per week. Has dock on nice part of the lake. Nice swimming and fishing right there. The big cabin VERY NICE. Not sure of the availablity, but thought I would mention it. I don't know him, just got the info for family members, as I have cabin up there, but not on chain. Let me know and if interested your email, and I can send you the number.

Beacon Shores is one, another is Driftwood Resort on the NW side of the big lake.

Also, try for something on Hay Lake, it might be cheaper.

If you don't mind camping,(tent or trailer) try the Crosslake Corp. of Eng. camp ground in Crosslake...nice camp ground with elctric showers, everything.

I think there is another resort on Big Trout lake in Manhatten Beach.

Good Luck!

The Crosslake Campground is A1 in my book. Stayed there tons. Only problem is getting a reservation. Most sites will be booked by now for that date. But definitely worth a try if camping is an option.

I have stayed at Tip Top resort on Clamshell lake for years and I highly recommend that resort. They also have a nice sand beach if you are bringing the kids. I have always thought there rates were very reasonable also.

I was at the Cross campground last year, June.

Thought that I heard some talk about shutting it down, along with some other corp. campgrounds due to funding.

Has anyone heard any word on if that is true?

Believe they even had something posted at the gate.?

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
