Lodging in the area?

Recommended Posts

Teach-D

I know some great fishing spots in the area but I am a teacher in Minneapolis. I get up their a few times (at least) during the winter, I love fishing the area. Are their places I and a few buddies could stay over for a Saturday night, (lodging) while we are up their ice fishing. Any place we can have a few beers in a form of shelter. Thank you for any advice.

Teach....we'll have our rental house out when the ice is thick enough....can be a fun over-nighter on the ice. Any of the basic hotel/motels off the freeway will do as well....a few resorts have winter accomodations too...

L'Motel is clean and probably a little less cost than the bigger chains. It's centrally located in the Alex area too so you can hit the watering holes and food pretty easily.

Let me know where you plan to fish or if you need some suggestions...

Lilghotier, Chells, can you give me som approximate prices, I have a hotspot, (no fail) on Minnewaska. Huge crappies, of course keep a few for two meals, throw the rest back, sure is fun. I would like to try Osakis, Sauk, and maybe Big Birch also. Any information on any other less well known lakes in the area would be appreciated. I definitely, spend some money in the area and am happy to. I grew up in Avon and like the area for outdoors activities. Thanks for all info much appreciated.

Teach...the L-motel I believe has rooms in the $39 dollar range...Super 8/ americinn and the rest are probably $89 or so...wouldn't be a bad spot to hit 'Waska and some of the Alex area lakes. There's a lot to choose from....even the city lakes can provide a good winter's bite. The chain has lots of variety, too. Geneva is right up the road from the shop, and Henry is a few blocks west of here. Hope to have our rental house on Geneva or LeHommeDieu as soon as the wheel is fixed and there is good ice!

stop in with your crew if you can....always willing to help out an angler's adventure...


good luck and good fishing!

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
