Resorts in Brainerd Area

Recommended Posts

I am looking at spending an extended weekend with a small group of guys (4-5)in the Brainerd area in mid June. I am not very familiar with the area and there seems to be an excessive amount of resort options. Primary focus for the trip will be fishing for walleyes and northerns. We are looking for reasonably priced resort accommodations on a decent fishery. Does anyone have any suggestions based on previous endeavors to that area? Thank you.

I dont think there is no reseasonalbe resorts around here lol

but i guess if you split it with 4 guys shouldnt be to bad

i think one that might be not to bad is gull lake resort

i stayed there once yrs ago before i moved here

south end of the lake close to ernies good place to eat and drink

could try north long train bell resort and motel

nice place good fishing

either lake is good fishing that time of year

Hideaway resort on Upper Hay is a great little Resort, Larry is the owner.

Fish tales on Lake Hubert is a great little resort, great lake to fish as well, There are a couple resorts on the Cullen chain that are nice as well.

Go to the Brainerd Chamber Web site they show most of the small seasonal resorts there.

Upper hey is a good lake

hubert and cullen not so much

for walleye any way

the river will probablyy be high and tuff to fish unless

you are good riverfisherman

i still say your best chance to catch fish is north long or gull that time of the year shouldnt be real hard on either

If you've got some money bring it up to South Long Lake in Brainerd and buy the old "Lakeside Resort which used to be known as "DeRosiers Resort" and you can catch the best Walleyes and Pike around.

I'm not a realtor or trying to sell the thing but with the economy, they're looking to sell!

As Greg52 said, Gull Lake Resort is more reasonably priced than the major resorts up here- like Maddens, Craguns, or Grandview Lodge...

I have to laugh though... when I think of Gull Lake Resort, I have a flashback to 1993 when I was installing carpet in one of their cabins and a bed matress started on fire when I accidently set it on top of a very large floor vent (which was the furnace)

....My employee said "what the heck is that smell"? I looked around and said, "holy [PoorWordUsage]. this thing is on fire".

We hauled it out and threw it into Gull Lake to put it out and went about finishing the job....

Crazy Stuff!!!

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
