Looking for a 2 bedroom cabin in July. Looked at places on the internet and alot of places are around a1000$ a week! The resort doesn't need to be fancy just clean and on a good fishing lake. Any ideas? Thanks for any information.

I have been staying at The Owl's Nest Resort on 5th Crow Wing for 46 or 47 years. 5th & 6th Crow Wing lakes (you can fish both lakes) consistantly produce good catches of sunfish, crappie, bass, northerns, perch, rock bass, and walleye.

Check with Kris at:
Owl's Nest Resort
17793 Deep Woods Dr.
Nevis Minnesota 56467

I doubt you will be able to get in in July, but it's worth a try.

Also, try Ron Phillips at Shady Lawn Resort:
www.shadylawnresort.com
You will have a better chance of getting in at Shady Lawn.

Good luck.

I second Owls nest. It has only five cabins, so there is never alot of people,which makes it a very enjoyable stay. The week that my family and I are up there, the same familys are there year after year. That is great for the kids. Bob and Kris are great people and I know you would enjoy the stay there with them. The lakes are good fishing lakes beside, you can also go up into 7th crow wing by a little longer river channel,which is very scenic. Enjoy your stay up-north where-ever you choose.

There is also Eagle's Landing Resort on Fifth Crow...it's next to Shady Lawn Resort. Give 'em a call, they usually have openings.

My grandma is on 3rd Crow Wing-also a solid fishing lake w/ access to 2nd or 4th Crow wing too.

Crow Crest and Round Bay are on the lake and seem clean and well run from the looks of the exteriors, boat launch, etc.

Check out Whaley's resort on Many Point lake. It has a very back woods feel and the fishing is excellent. The cabins and villas are very nice and the staff are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.

keep fishin'

I STAYED AT WHITE PINE RESORT ON TWO INLETS LAKE A COUPLE YEARS BACK. VERY NICE CABINS, EVEN NICER OWNERS. THE LAKE WAS GOOD FOR LARGE CRAPPIES AND SMALLER PIKE.

Eagle Bay Resort on Eagle Lake is a nice resort. Eagle lake is connected to Potato and Island lakes. The resort is 7 miles north of Park Rapids on 71 so its close to Itasca State Park. It is right next to a golf course if you like to golf. We have stayed there the past 3 years and we really like it. I think they have a web site so you can check it out.

I heard my dad tell a friend the other day about how he picked a resort to stay at when we first started going up in the late 80s. He sent away to park rapids for listings and got back a ton of brochures. He went through them and picked the one where the pictures didn't have people swimming and skiing on th lake, and that looked quiet and cozy.

Shanna,
I assume you have picked a vacation spot. If not, check out Straight Pines Resort. It's extremely clean, quiet and you can get a week for around $600.00

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
