north shore accomodations?

6 posts in this topic

Hi fellow fm'ers,

I am planning a family trip to the north shore for mid june. My wife knows some folks in silver bay that we will be visiting while we are there so I was thinking something between two harbors and grand marias would be ideal. I am also hoping to get a day on superior going after some lakers. I have a 17' alumacraft w/ a 50hp and i am thinking that might be a bit undersized for superior, so I guess I am looking for a good charter service, as well as good lodging reccomendations.

Plus If you can think of anything else in the area that is a must see or must do please reply.

Thanks,

Kyle Kreisler

Kyle, there are a lot of nice resorts along the North Shore and some decent campgrounds as well. Not a lot of them can be mentioned on here, but search for the Two Harbors Chamber to get more info. As far as your boat goes, they put a small craft harbor in on scenic 61, it is called McQuade. I plan on putting my boat in there and it is a 14ft. with a 25 horse. Of course it will have to be REALLY calm, but I think it should be ok. Good luck!

The only lodging I know of north of two harbors is Grand Superior Lodge. It is a top notch facility with the best food in the state. I'm not sure if that's the type of place you are looking for or just the standard motel. If you are interested in a charter you've come to the right place. Being in the business and knowing the quality of the trips offered leads me to recomend Bill's Great Lakes Charters, Hard Times, and Skipper's Kid (Charter operated by Tom, AKA Skipper's Kid on this website). If you're interested you might be able to get a better deal with your lodging in duluth if you have a charter booked with the charters I mentioned. Check out their websites and if you want more information or have any questions feel free to send me an e-mail and I'll help in finding you a great charter. I'm sure Skipper's Kid will chime in and be a good deal of help to you as well.

Kyle,

Try Sve's Resort, about 20 miles out of Two Harbors, It's about half way between Two Harbors and Silver Bay. They have nice cabins right on Lake Superior, reasonable prices also. They have a boat launch right there or there is a new one about 2 miles back towards Two Harbors. I launch my 16' lund with 40hp, you just have to pick your days, lake usually quiets down toward evening. If it's a nice night you can boat up to Splitrock Lighthouse, great view from the water.

There's a motel in Silver Bay on 61. It's an Americinn or days inn, one of those.

Is that the new giant hotel they just built like a year ago in the huge open area?

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
