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!!!

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?  
    • smurfy
      i keep hearing that this slush wont freeze up. i just cant fathom that with the low temps forecasted it wont?????????   anyone else with thoughts????
    • arctic_scrap1
      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!
    • JohnnyM
      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
