Which of these 4 outfitters have the nicest houses?


Recommended Posts

Having trouble finding pics on their website (if they have a website) - and these are my 4 choices for the weekend I'm looking at. Taking my 63 year old father with on our first trip to URL and want him to be comfortable over 3 days/2nights. Thanks,

1) Aggasiz Lodge

2) Club Red

3) Mort's

4) Red Lake Adventures

The only one on your list that I have stayed with is Club Red and their houses are just fine. Clean, spacious, restrooms, and they put you on fish. Must not be to bad because that's the place I keep staying at year after year. I used to stay with some others but now only Club Red.

I have stayed with Aggasiz once 2years ago, we caught a good amount of fish the houses were large, but undesirable. Most of the gas lights didn't work, 1 of the 2 heaters was barely working but we tinkered and got them both running so we had plenty of heat. Price wasn't bad. Once we checked in we didn't see the guy again until we were driving off the lake the next day.

I was speaking with a co-worker earlier today about Number 4.

From what I gather he was very pleased with the houses and the experience he had with them.

Sounded like a very nice house he was in.

Red Lake Adventures filled up by the time I called them and I decided to go with Club Red on his recommendation (the guy at Red Lake Adv., as well as Zaraspooks). Thanks for the responses guys.

Stayed with mort's last wkend, his house were nice. Just the basic fish house 4 bunks, 8 holes, 2 burner stove, 2 rattle reels (more would have been nice), 2 heaters (1 vented and one not) and clean. They stopped out at least twice a day to check to see if we needed anything. They have 24 hr restrooms and showers. Would stay there again and may go up next wkend.

      Wow, interesting

      Back when the DNR was seining our beach in July I asked, and apparently they were through oak narrows.   But long way to go to get to us.   I'll keep my eyes open and my mask and snorkel on.  Didn't see any sign off them this summer.

      Nice job Troy.   We are happy with our opening day for ducks.  2 man limit of mixed species by 10am.  LOTS of people where we were today but that was expected.  Other than getting beat to our spot, no issues that would keep up away.  Not even the rain.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now TW200 so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      A few pics of our ride.

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.
