Harmony Beach Vacation

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Just got back from a week at Harmony Beach Resort, and wow is this an awesome place! They were easily able to accommodate my wife’s huge family! Their whole setup is really nice. The 2 guys they had working at the docks were awesome! 

 

My wife’s family doesn’t fish, so I was the amateur guide for the week...except for 1 day, where her brother actually hired a guide. I didn’t bring my boat, because it’s just too small for Kabetogama, and the other available boat was out of commission. So with only 1 boat for the week, we had to shuttle people back and fourth, which cut down on fishing time, but it worked out.

 

The guide we went out with typically takes people to Rainy Lake through kettle falls, but we wanted to stay on “kab” and Namakan. We still had shore lunch at kettle falls though, which was a cool ordeal. He also took us to check out hoist bay and stevens’ island. It was really windy that day, so it probably prevented us from fishing an extra spot or 2, but it was still a really fun experience.

 

Overall, we caught around 150 fish for the week. We caught a ton of pike! Surprisingly, not very many bass. Several jumbo perch. And an equal mix of walleye and sauger. Biggest pike was 30 inches. Biggest walleye was 23 inches. Biggest bass was 17.5 inches. Like I said before, my wife’s family doesn’t fish, so a lot of people were catching their first ever walleye or pike. So there was lots of excited kids (and grown ups) all week!

 

Lots of fun was had, both on the water and at the cabin. Sounds like this may have been the first of an annual trip. Harmony Beach is awesome!

*LOL* They actually do have family from Texas! But he is not one of them.

 

Seems like we were the only people from Minnesota staying at the resort! They had a group from Texas, Tennessee, and Louisiana.

      My 115 merc 4 stroke (2006) is acting up.  At about 2/3 throttle, 30 mph, 4000 rpm's the motor seems to cavitate or rev up and the tach pops way up, but we didn't speed up.  I quickly backed off and ran at a lower speed.  I have it trimmed up on plane but not overly so.  It did it once at a lower speed as well.  Most of the time at lower speeds it riund fine. Brought it in and they looked at it and pulled the prop and everything looked fine there etc.  The motors lower plate seems to be located correctly, right at the bottom of the boat.  Going on one last trip, and don't really have much time to bring it in for an extensive diagnosis, might need to baby it and stay close to the landing.  Any ideas?

      Samsung Note 10+.  It does have a great camera.  Had to use the digital zoom on that shot.  Wish I had my wildlife camera with me.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.
