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.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
