Resort Suggestions

Recommended Posts

jason manning

Hello,

My brother, some friends and I are planning on taking my Dad on a 5 day fishing/bonding trip at the end of August. 2 summers ago we rented a cabin and boats at Moosetrack Adventures in Ely. Jim and the staff were awesome and the accommodations were fantastic! I can't say enough good things about them. We had a beautiful time. I would like to go back again, but the group of guys I go with want to try something a little closer to the Gunflint area this time around. So I ask the Fishing Minnesota Community for suggestions. Looking for a smaller, "Mom and Pop" out-of the-way type place. Doesn't have to be fancy. Thank you in advance for your help.

Jason

For some good fishing and a Mom and Pop atmosphere I would suggest 3 places to start. Voyageurs Canoe Outfitters, Gunflint Pines, Or Seagull Creek Fish Camp. Voyageurs and Segull would put you on Sag and a decent chance at some 30 inchers and some lake trout.

Jason, I wholeheartedly agree about Moosetrack and Jim et al.

Can't help you on your quest, but I'd trust Gunflint to steer me right up the, uh, Glunflint. smilesmile

Gunflint knows his Shiznit on the Gunflint. DUH! Thus the name. grin

I have heard good things about Seagull Creek. Sag is a tuff nut to crack but a chance at some true trophy eyes and you will love the bass in there Jason. They are typical grass carp, they hit anything that comes by them. wink

Or drive a bit farther up the shore across the border and hit Northern Lights Lake. Its coming back for the walleyes and there is TONS of nice smallies in there. Do us waleye guys a favor and keep and eat all the bass ya catch up there. wink

As a fairly new "trail" resident but not lacking the knowledge of the area i would highly second the voyageurs, top notch place with top notch service(i may be alot bias). The cabins and resort units are very rustic. One of them is even set right on the banks of the gull river/lake! With boats or canoes available for rent, along with helpful staff to point you in the right direction for all your fishing needs!

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
