just wanted to let anyone who might be staying at twin pines resort not to stay in rooms 20 or 21. i dont know about any other rooms but ours didnt have any heat in them. we got up there about 3pm on fri and noticed it was cold right away. looked at the thermostat and it said 50 degres, well we wanted to get out fishing so we called from the fish house to tell them to look at it and they said they would, well we get back in from fishing after 10pm and to our amazment no heat. i think they knew the heat wasnt working and they didnt want to fix it.we were booked for 2 nights but after freezing all night in a cold room we left.wont ever stay there again.

Just wanted to let you know that in the rooms you can get more heat from the air conditioners. They have heaters on them.
You should have called them.

Sounds like he did. A room should never be 50 degrees when people are coming to stay in it. No excuses for that!

And all summer long the resorts were complaining about the slot limits imposed and how they would ruin their business.
It looks like they don't need a "slot limit" to ruin their business for them...you'd think at this point they would be providing head-over-heels service to make sure you come back to their resort again and again...what a shame. They deserve whatever happens to them.
Imagine if you fell asleep in that cold room and froze to death? What would they say then?

i would just like to add to my first post that it seems that there was a mix up in communication from us to the people at twin pines resort. it seems when we called from the fish house to tell them about the heat in the room the message was never relayed to the proper person.the people from twin pines seen these post and called me today to tell me there was heat in the room its just that its not controled by the thermostat on the wall or the register on the floor but the heat comes out of the air conditioner in the wall. well it never came to mind to look at the air con for heat so i guess it is some of our fault for not looking at that.i just wanted to clear this up and add its not a bad place to stay it was just a miscummication.

I am glad you heard from them. I called up there yesterday to let them know there was some problems.
Glad you got it straightened out.

I'm not one to bash a resort, anyone can have a bad day or two. But, I'm convinced I will never stay or recommend my friends to stay at Twin Pines. A buddy was supposed to have his bachelor party out in the big party shack a few weeks back. Well, no heat at 3 AM kinda drove everyone out Friday night. One would think for the amount they charge for that thing, they owners would try and rectify the problem before things escalated and got out of hand. Everyone wound up getting hotel rooms elsewhere for the rest of the weekend. Sure am glad I had the flu that weekend, and couldn't make it up. It truly is a shame when a resort is totally consumed with money, and doesn't give a rat's arse if you catch anything. Dickies may not have the fanciest shacks on the lake, but at least Marge charges a fair price, and they really do try to put you on fish. I just wish they weren't always booked up so I could spend more weekends up fishing.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
