      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Whitefish Restaurants on the water

Recommended Posts

Jason1

My wife and I are going to be staying on Clamshell in a couple weeks and I was wondering if there are any restaurants where you could dock your boat near Clamshell. In past years we have gone to the Warf, which is great but since I have a small boat I was looking for something a little closer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think it is Towering Pines on Upper Whitefish, and also the Brothers on Trout, but that would be long trip depending upon wind. I think there is another on the opposite side of Whitefish from you, but I can't think of the name, or maybe I am turned around smile.gif wouldn't be the first time!

Have a fun trip!

Driftwood resort has a liquor license and good food. Not many people know that it is more than a resort so try it out. It is just Northwest of the entrance to Hay.

However the best spot will always be Moonlight Bay to me.

Heading up for the Lions Fishing Tournament on 6/9/07. Multi-species tournament that is a great time if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the info I really appreciate it. My wife and I always enjoy taking a break from fishing and getting a bite to eat on the water. I forgot to mention this trip is over our wedding anniversary and she loves going up north fishing as much as I do. I am one luck man.

Boy o boy, some may call you super lucky. I'm jealous.

How many years of tight lines do you have?

Driftwood has some good food and just got a new chef. They have a good menu. Plus they have a sheltered harbor.

K Dawg, we have been married for 9 years but been together 15 years. With her enjoying fishing it makes it really nice and easy to buy fishing gear, no begging or convincing needed. In fact sometimes I have to convince her to not buy fishing gear, Like this year when I bought a Lowrance 522IGPS. She wanted the LCX27 which is a little more than I wanted to spend. grin.gif

I worked at the Warf back when I was in HS in 1999. It was an awesome summer, so I always like the warf, but it has changed some in the past few years. To me, Moonlite Bay is my favorite bar in the world. For people my age, it is a meat market every weekend! Had a great time this past weekend, thats for sure.

As far as food and the setting, it is great.

From what I'm hearing, Manhattan Beach lodge is going to be hottest place on the chain now. I guess it has a new owner and he's got deep pockets. The best bands, drinks and food are on the menu now. He's planning on making it a great night club like it used to be. Last weekend it was packed! If your looking for good food I sure wouldnt suggest Moonlight Bay. The wharf has awesome food.

Packed if you want to see a bunch of 50 somes! wink.gifNothing against you oldies, but my self being 24, will stick to Moonlite. Nothing will ever beat it for being a night club. Manhattan can try all it wants, but bringing Christy Love in isn't going to bring young people. You want packed, you go to Moonlite on the weekend. There will be a thousand there at one time during the 4th weekend. They have the best bartenders, the best looking girls, the best DJ (DJ JP) and the best patio!

What has changed with the wharf? As long as it is not the bisque I will be ok... grin.gif

Zorbaz is another place on cross lake you might want to try... A little over priced(imo) but good otherwise...

When I worked there, we had a different owner. Brian owns it now and is a great guy. The only thing is, I thought the food went downhill a little. I think it has improved recently, but the steak sandwich is smaller, and smaller, and smaller.

Zorbaz is great also. It has great pizza, and on Wed night a lot of locals go because it is dollar bottle night.

I've decided to stay away from the Log Jam. Since Cheap-o DJ Paul took over the place, it has stunk. Ten dollar cover in freaking crosslake?!?! PAAALEEEAAASE!! Moonlite will always be my place.

Well I found out what has changed at the Wharf... The Wharf has lost there cook and he took his bisque recipe with him... Found out the hard way this past Sat, sounds like his last day was a week or so ago... Food was sub par and it took forever to get it... Sounds like he is heading up to Manhattan Beach... I guess I will have to make a little bit longer of a trip for my bisque now...

Bassaddict,

Thanks I just got back from the chain and my wife and I had a great time and as we were boating around Upper whitefish I noticed that place. One day we went to Driftwood to eat and that was a nice place as well.

Well, if you are looking for a place with burgers for less than $10, the Wharf is NOT the place to go - its pretty spendy, and the food is average at best.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
