crane lake

Recommended Posts

It's me again, and thank you to d-roy on your post about namakan resorts but that boat ride might be a liitle to far for a 25 hp and 4 people. My next dilema, my wife want's to go (thats a good thing) but doesn't really want to camp. I've checked all the resorts on crane and 1 with openings in my price range for august 26,27,28. It was Scott's Peaceful Valley. Anybody stay there and what was your expierence. I will be with my 2 boy's 10 and 7, avid walleye kids. The wife just likes to meet us at the dock and spend the day at the cabin. I know nothing about crane lake and the fishing. I know it's not a real good time of the year for walleye fishing, but I don't have a choice for later on and I don't hear much on this site about crane. Would like to hear any input or email address's if possible for those who have been there. Thanks, Joe

I stayed there last year. It is a rustic older but nice resort. Things are kept very clean, but if your wife needs more modern cabins this is not for her.

For fisherman it's great. The cabins are across from the road from the lake and dock. But they do give you free ice everyday and let you charge the batteries in your boat by the dock with there battery chargers.

I was up there with my 14 year old, we had a great time and will go back again.

Hope that helps you.

      Nice job Bob! Fishing off the neighbors dock sucked for us. My gang is coming up Thursday night till Monday, this will be our opener, we'll hit it hard. It's a bummer my dock is mostly under water and the lift isn't in. Thanks to the neighbor around the corner for letting us park on shore at there place next weekend.

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.
