Where to travel to

5 posts in this topic

A friend and I are planning a 4-5 day vacation in early June to go fishing on some lakes that we have not been on before. Sadly, the ladies are coming with and one of them is pregnant so will need to rent a cabin or hotel for the days we are traveling.

I am wondering if anybody has an suggestions on any lakes or areas within 2-3 hours of Saint Cloud that are fun to hang out around that time of year and have some decent fisheries.

Thanks for any information.

I have stayed at Towering Pines resort on the white fish chain. They have cabins and trailers to rent. It is located on clamshell lake. There number and address are located in the resort finder, under Brainard area. Friendly owners and a lot of water to fish.

I really like the Cass Lake chain. It's a 3 hour trip and worth every mile especially that time of year. I'll be up there a couple of weeks later. Check the sponser link in my signature for resorts.

I would second Borch's claim for Cass Lake.It is a nine lake chain so you can always get out of the wind.Lots to do in the area also.We stayed at Break on the Lake resort and enjoyed it.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
