Looking for a place to go

Recommended Posts

myzee13

I'm looking for a lake/lakes and a place to stay on a fishing trip for myself and some friends. We're trying to save a couple of bucks this year for our annual "fishing trip up north". We'll be hauling our own house, but need a place to crash. I've fished a few lakes in the area in the past, but could use some assistance. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, myzee13

do you stay at resorts or hotels, what is the budget. Maybe you sleep in the houses?

I think I'd prefer to stay at a resort/cabin. We're bringing 4 adults + my 13 yr old son. Our fish house will be crowded enough while fishing, so a shower, beds, and a kitchen of some sorts would be nice.I guess for 3 days/nights I'm trying to find something around $100 per person or less....maybe I'm wishing, I don't know.I'm sure we could sacrifice comfort if the fishing was good.

I know there are quit a few places to rent up around the Annandale area, good fishing also. Try looking at lake rentals in Hutchinson area on google and see what pops up. This time of year you can get a nice place for half or less then that even compared to summer.good luck

Well this is just my opinion and take it for what its worth to you. I would drive the extra 100 miles and head to Mille Lacs. Save money on the motel and rent a sleeper in the Feb time frame when the jumbo perch are biting. There are also things to do around the lake when not fishing. The other alternative is to save a few more bucks and then head to upper Red lake and rent a sleeper. Its not uncommon to catch 30 eyes/day up there. Trip of a life time.

Just my opinion.

Good Luck, Faner

Hutchinson is not a resort area so it is unlikely to find a cabin unless you want to stay at the Star Motel. They have a sign that says FREE HO. I think the B falls off sometimes.

You could also try the Saint Cloud area, possibly the Horseshoe chain of lakes. The have summer cabins, but unsure in the winter. Lots of good fishing in that area (cats, walleyes, crappies and HUG sunfish).

BassDoctor, you forgot the other part of the sign that says tv with remote! Now that is a good deal right there.

this is just my 2cents worth but if you want a good time head north way north for $100 a person you will be able to rent a sleeper on several lakes such as upper red lake - Check out "Rogers Resort" on upper red they have a list of oufitters to rent sleepers from and have a chance at some walleye - crappie - perch - northern, you could still bring a portable and move around other lakes are Winnie- Leech - Mille lacs- all have sleepers

Come on up to Lake of the Woods friend! if your going to spend the money to do a trip with a group, book a fishing package with one of the resorts on LOW and let them do the work for you so you can relax! Consider it treating yourself!! Everyone has to treat themselves once in a while and what better place to do it than the Walleye Capitol!!!

      I love the location of the Retreat Lodge, never stayed there though.

      I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.

      I am helping out with the MN SATT (high school fishing) and Classic Bass Pro tournament trail to help fill 20 more boat marshal spots on Le Homme Dieu and the chain on June 14, 2019.  As a boat marshal you will be placed in a boat with some of top bass pros in Minnesota and the country.  The likes of Dean Capra, Seth Feider, John Figi, Matt Peters,  and many more top pros fish these events.  (not sure if they are fishing the Le Homme Dieu event or not, but it gives you an idea of the caliber of anglers fishing this trail and the opportunity you could have to be in their boat!) Your job would be to record fish on an app and make sure the anglers are following all the rules of the trail.  There is much more information on the sign up page and if you have additional questions about what is require you can call my cell 612-819-8500.  We opened this up to High School Anglers first, and now we are opening it up the general public.  You must be 13 years or older and this is a great opportunity to learn something new by just being in the boat with some of these anglers.  Here is a link to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084ba5ad2ba6fb6-classic2  sign up before the spots are filled up!

      Hello David, we visited Vermilion for years until purchasing some land in the Frazer Bay / Smarts Bay area. We have stayed at a number of resorts, but really enjoyed Retreat Lodge due to the owners, reasonable prices and fantastic fishing within 2 miles of where it is located! Good luck with your decision!   Vermilion is a one of a kind lake!

      Thanks guys!

      for crappies gulp alive 2.5 black shad is a great bait for me set on a 1/16oz jig.  tube jigs are great also!

      Hello, I am planning to spend a week with family at either Pelican or Vermillion in late July, and need to commit to just one. From what I know, both are great. I have been to Pelican in 15 years ago and liked it, but I've always been intrigued by Vermillion. I would appreciate thoughts and recommendations on both lakes, experiences at particular resorts. The family loves fishing for pike and I would like another crack at a Musky, but the main idea is to show the kids (9, 8, 6) the beauty of the area and build great memories. Thank you,   David

      Esox, couldn't find the online guide service in the last two issues of th Timberjay.  Could you please provide a link or a hint as to where you found it?

      I would say try Warroad casting spoons, spinners. Have heard of people catching walleyes there. Or there is a fishing pier in Baudette Bay of the Rainy. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55
