Resorts with air

Recommended Posts

borchawk1

Ok, this may sound pretty petty, but I've been burned...literally, by the dog days of summer staying at a place without air. Our last vacation was 5 years back in Park Rapids and it was 100F at 11:00 at night without a breeze. It sucked big time, we actually left early since the lake was in full bloom from the heat. It was horrible!

Does anyone know of any decent resorts on Cass that have a good beach, cabins with air, and decent digs?

It seems like we get a wish list of resorts on here every week... There two things I would do. First try to do a search on the Cass forum to see all the different threads about the local resorts. Then second I would check with Horseshoe Resort, Wishbone Resort or Sunset Cove. They are the sponsors here on FM. There are other resorts out there on Cass, but these three put their time and money into this website. I hope this helps and if you have any further questions feel free to drop me an email in my sig below.

Horseshoe: (877) 634-1078

Wishbone: (218) 335-2320

Sunset Cove: (218) 335-2480

Good Luck...

Hawk,

I would second Wishbone and Horseshoe. Our family stays in about 4 cabins (25 people)and most of them are either brand new or remodeled and many have ac. Ours is only two years old and while it does not have ac it has ceiling fans in every room and they do a pretty good job. The only problem with Wishbone might be availability! I know that we go the last week of July and the first week of August and they are booked solid. Our overflow of family has stayed at the Horseshoe and some are staying there this year as well. Clark has done a great job at the Horseshoe since taking it over several years ago and he has remodeled many of the cabins and built new ones as well and many have ac as well. I can not speak for Sunset Cove but you can't go wrong at the Horseshoe or Wishbone!

Thanks guys, we ended up booking at Lost Acres on Kitchi and found a couple of cabins, one with air, for the last week of July. I was hard to find a two cabins on the main lake during July (as expected).

If it gets too ungodly hot we'll need to break out some cots for the in-laws to sleep in (they took the one without air). I haven't fished Kitchi in 20 years so it should be interesting. I figured it would likely have a better panfish bite for the kids and I'd still be able to run to Cass if need be. We'll see, we just might start a family tradition!

So what kind of walleye pattern exists on the lakes in the latter days of summer? Would a guy do any good corking with a crew in the evening or trolling plugs over the flats?

Hawk,

I would vote for the second choice and keep it shallow. Good Luck, you will have to fight me for those elusive walleye as our family will be up there the last week of July as well! LOL

You might also consider Lake Andrusia right next to Cass. Check out Finn-n-Feather resort. Really nice cabins with AIR and lots of trees will all keep you cool.

I stay on Andrusia every winter for a week. Awesome fishing, and awesome people.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.
