I just booked with Twin Pines today for overnight on the 17th. Have people had good experiences going with them in the past? Nice fish?

I stayed in one of there sleepers this last weekend. I have stayed with them twice. Bill and Linda are real nice. Plan on taking portables. I haven't cuaght a fish out of one of there houses yet. Move around and get away from the crowds and you will do fine. 7 mile is where I ended up having the best luck. Lots of perch, no walleye.

Give me a call if you have some constructive advise on how to take our fishing more serious. We take it serious and invest time, dollars and effort to provide top notch service. Would like to hear from you. Thanks Bill

Bill,

I would like to thank you and Linda for your hospitality.

We can up Friday and stayed at a near by cabin. This was the second weekend in a row. We ate ALL of our meals with you and did a bit of social drinking as well grin.gif

On Saturday we brought our bags with and asked Linda if we could use a shower. (Cabin has been winterized and there is no running water) She said of course. We ate breakfast/Lunch and had a few beers and took showers. I can tell you with that kind of service we were back for lunch and breakfast the next day. Twin Pines is where we always eat our meals and have a social drink or two. I am sure they make every effort as for the fishing end of the business as well.

NUMBER 7 for breakfast ROCKS. Extra everything should sound familiar to you Bill.

I just got back from twin pines, they had nice shacks, good beds, good roads, great food, and tough fishing. I was a little dissapointed when we only caught a few 4 inch perch and 3 burbot. Sometimes i am sure their sleepers are on good fishing, just not last weekend.

I also just got back from a 24 hour sleeper from Twin Pines. Caught couple big pout and lost some nice fish early in the morning do to fisherman error!! I thought it was a nice place and nice sleeper, ya fishing wasn't hot but on mille lacs I have never had luck in a sleeper. No matter early/late season, good/bad spot, I have never produced in a rental. If I think about the days I have taken my portable out there and hunted them down the numbers of fish caught increased dramatically. I personally feel if you want to have a enjoyable and relaxing couple nights in warmth of a sleeper do it, but if you are really on mille lacs to fish for the bigguns' run your own operation with a map and GPS.

We were in one of their rentals friday night, #42 I think? Took a left where there were two cones. We caught a couple big eelpout and a small perch. First time ever seeing a pout. Fishing was slow but the beer still tasted good.

      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?
