Fav. lake for a Cabin?


Recommended Posts

Money being no object, I would say Vermillion. Excellent walleye, crappie, muskie and smallmouth fishing in a beautiful setting.

I like setterguy's choice, but I have to say - there is no single answer on this one. If I could, I'd have one on Vermilion, one on Lake Kabekona, Mille Lacs, Crane Lake, the Rainy River, Ottertail, and a few on other smaller lakes that I've come to love over the years. Every lake has it's own personality and features, so it's a matter of finding the unique combination you're looking for. You can probably see from my choices that I'm a walleye junkie though! wink.gif

We don't have a cabin at all right now, but hey - just like the Powerball..."It could happen". Yeah, right.

I would like to have one in the Grand Rapids area. Since I grew up there I know alot of the lakes. I plan to retire up there in 20 to 30 years. My family has 120 acres in the Marcell area. That is where I will probably end up.

My favorite lake for a cabin would be something in the Grand Rapids area. Lots of good lakes for fishing and the people seem very nice. Plus I've never lost yet at the Casino outside Deer River. In fact one opening weekend I won enough to pay for the entire trip for the three of us that went. That included bait, gas, food, cabin rental and some good ole barley pop.

Now if I had smaller kids I'd say the Brainerd area. Still lots of good lakes to fish but there is also some other things like go carts, bumper boats, water slide etc: that the kids could do if they got board fishing.

Canadian side of LOW on one of those small islands, by Kenora Onterio. Excellent Smallies, Northern, Muskie, Walleye, you name it, they got it.

I'd second Metroguy99. They are nice, and there are some for sale.

I'll offer up my 2 cents on this....i've fished Vermilion once when I was about 14 and from what I can remember it was a beautiful lake with all the species most fishermen look for. I like LOTW but Vermilion seems to be a little more remote. After moving to Texas my fishing trips up north have been sadly put to a screeching halt. Hopefully in the next couple of years we can get back to God's country. Besides....it's like living in a flippin' roaster oven down here. Today it hit 105 degrees. Too hot for me thanks!

Minnetonka, If I could afford that most of my problems would disappear.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
