West Wind's


Puckfan

Recommended Posts

We just got back from our trip up to URL. Just want to say thanks to the fine folks at West Wind's for giving us a great place to stay in a pinch. Glad we had portables with! grin.gif We were supposed to stay at the place just north of them (I won't name names) but it was entirely unacceptable from what we were sold by phone. As far as the fishing goes...we did okay. A number of nice crappies in the 13-15 in. range. Some walleyes and a good number of perch predominately liking red.

What was not cool about the place you were going to stay?

I am looking at going that way and don't want any surprises.

email me if you don't want to share here...

Ran into the Wood Finisher there. He also said he had a great time after as he put it, "West Winds saved our bacon!!!" Good fella, the wood man!

Lakeside cabin #2, they are new this year. The reason I asked is, someone in that cabin went out at 2am, about 20 feet from shore, drilled a hole through the ice, into the sand, and set up a tipup! grin.gif Just wondering if you were one of those in that group, it sure gave our group a good laugh in the morning. BTW-flag never popped up! smirk.gif

We stayed in motel room #4 and boy its sure was great to get a room without a toilet seat, no running water, unvacumed floor, only two power outlets(couldn't charge on vex battery), worker nocking our door at 1am to find out that he had the wrong room while thier cooking party was two rooms over mad.gif and many more!! Funny they only wanted CASH as they said that their credit card machine to turned off cause someone was stealing from it. Luckly we just wanted to lay are heads before running up to LOTW after catching close to our limits that day.

That's beautiful!!! No, we stayed in one of the trailer houses. Very nice. I wouldn't have doubted one of our fellas would have done the same if we were closer to the lake. That guy must've needed more mix and more ice! grin.gif

I would've been completely p.o'd. URL is NOT in the arctic wilderness ....accomodations should be (at least) decent.

It is what it is and I don't want to gripe on them too much. It was just disappointing.

Man, I wish I was heading up there again this weekend!!! What a great time! laugh.gif

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
