I was wondering if someone could help me out with any resorts in the area? My wife and I have been coming up to Minnesota now for quite a few years and usually head way north (Arrowhead region). We are looking for something a little closer now as we have a two year old daughter and don't want to put her through the long drive. We were just wondering if there were any good resorts in the area which offered good fishing for northern and walleyes? Not looking for anything fancy just a place to cook fish and have good bed at the end of the day. She likes to cast for northerns(I do too) and got spoiled in some of the lakes we fished in the past because she could have one on about every five casts. I like to fish walleyes. Not looking for any huge body of water as I only have 17' Basstracker with 40 horse so I don't break any speed records but can get around. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Welcome jd!

Beaver Dam Resort on Lake German would be an option. Not sure on availability and/or accomodations, but this would put you in a nice, central location with access to several area lakes that produce what you're looking for. Best Point Resort on Lake Tetonka would also be an option.

My family and I have been going to Leech lake every year to a nice family resort in steamboat bay the walleye population is down but there or other fish and it is a very family oriented place.steamboat bay is like a small lake conected to a big lake with panfish bass northern muskie and even a few wallye ,

Sakatah Bay Resort would also be an option if your you want to be closer to home. It's in Waterville with new owners. It's a motel type setup on the lake and the owner also does a little guiding and will help you out. I believe they also have a website.

T.O. - Thanks for the info. I will check them out.

F.B. - Thanks for info on Leech. I have fished Leech a few times in the past and done fairly well off Bear Island, Sucker and Portage bays. It may just be too big of lake for family but thanks again.

MJ - Thanks for info, too. I plan on checking out all options you all have left for me.

French Lake has muskies and if you like to cast for pike that might be a good candidate. There is a resort or 2 on the lake as well. Hoy's and Knipples I think are the resorts.

Thanks, G-man! I will add those to the list to check out. I like MUSKIES, TOO!!! I have not caught one of those since I used to go to Wabedo in the 90's.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      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?
