Resorts with outdated photos

5 posts in this topic

This forum is a great place to ask about resort recommendations. Have you ever seen pictures in a brochure than drive up there and fined out the pics must have been taken 60 years ago when the place was new? I hate when that happens!

We take pictures to help hold onto memories.

Could be a picture of grandpa that they weren't ready to throw away just yet. smirk.gif

I had to stop work on the boat and come back to this topic.

Crazy I know.

I like old pictures. I can't help imagining what life was like at that time and the story they tell..

Imagine a picture with a man in a flannel shirt and old aluminum boat in the backround. This guy pioneered the area and built the log lodge with nothing but an ax and sweat. The lodge still stands today, over the years the logs show their age. How many guests have come and gone over that time. Young kids then now still return to the lodge with their young.

An other picture with a guy dressed in the finest Cabela wear. Theres a new Lund boat with all the latest electronics in the backround. This guy works in a major city as a computer programmer. Hes on vacation from the Rat Race and drove through heavy traffic to get into Gods Country for the weekend. As he poses for the picture the thought of having to go home haunts him.

I think he meant that the place looked new when the pictures were taken (way back when) and now the resort/cabins are old and run down. I have been there.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
