Adrian's Resort?


Recommended Posts

Hey gentleman, just got a call from a buddy in Bemidji to go to LOTW and stay in one of Adrain's new sleepers from Feb. 17th to the 19th. I'm not familiar with this resort at all, so I'm looking for a little insight from anyone that does. Thanks Gang, Greg smile.gif

Satchmo,

You'll be pleased with Adrian's. They are good people who have been in the business for many, many years. They know how to treat their clients. Good luck and enjoy.

i have not stayed at Adrians, we stay at the resort next to them, Riverbend. However we do use their roads to access from Wheelers Point and if that is any indication you should have a good time. They maintain a great road, and I have stopped into their resort on a couple of ocassions and found them to be very friendly folks. Many mornings I have driven out before 7am and they have already been out with the plows and done a terrific job on the roadways. Good luck and hold onto your rod.. Bill

Agreed. Why stay in the sleeper though? The fish dont bite after dark anyway... well, nothing you want to catch that is. It is much nicer to leave the lake at sundown, take a hot shower and cook with a stove and have a sink to do the dishes.

The night bite question? Up until this year I too was a believer in the 'no night bite' theory, though I had heard rumours over the years that there was here and there and now and then. With the kinda fickle bite this year we had to do things a bit different than years prior to find and get fish reliably. Shallow current areas were the rule for us this year, and we were getting nice fish at daybreak and dusk on these spots consistently over a 5-6 week span anyhow. You could pick up your limit of nice 'eyes before the masses were even coming out. No sense going home when I can sleep in a couple different huts eh. Well a couple of times the best bite of the day started after sunset and ran till 8-9pm or so, well after dark anyhow, and the fish were just a pounding the wobbler jig.

Back during the full moon in January we had moved a hut to 9fow after the evening bite wained. I decided to sleep in this hut in order to get a line in the water brite and early on this new spot when the early traffic going by in the morning woke me up. I awoke shortly before 1am freezing and went out to switch propane tanks, figured I'd drop a line for a bit when I got back in.....2 minutes later I pulled a 28+ incher into the hut, this fish, and prior mentiond evenings/nights for sure blew the no night bite theoy out of the water!

I now think the right location and time of season there is indeed a night bite up here, I had heard there was and I have seen it now for sure.

Two weeks ago we spent three nights out past where Adrians sleepers are. In three nights with four rattle reels down the only fish caught after 5:00 PM and before 8:00 AM was one Eelpout. If you want a night bite you need to get shallow or set up on a reef.

Fisky,

I agree that the fish CAN bite after dark but generally

do not. If I remember correctly weren't you fishing in

the Bay or even the River?

The fish in the river dont care about day or night. If

you can find them they will bite.

I've been going to Adrian's for 20+ years, winter and summer. Great people! The younger generation is taking over and have the same good attitude toward customers. Stan C.

I've stayed at Adrian's numerous times during the winter. They are indeed great people who work hard at making sure their customers are taken care of. A very comfortable atmosphere for the ice angler in my opinion. Nothing too fancy, but you get that "sense of home" feeling. I'd stay at Adrian's again.

I have never run into a resorter up there or at Winnie that was anything but nice. Cant understand how some of the guys at a big lake 90 minutes north of the Twin Cities are not quite as nice to deal with.

      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?
