Resort info needed.

Just wondering if anyone knows if Butch and Nev's resort on Geneva has a website? I have looked here on the internet but with no luck. I tried calling several times but there was no answer. Anyone know if they are still open?

I doubt that they have a web site. In fact, I don't know if they are still operating as a resort. I know that they are trying to sell the property. Hoping to entice someone who wants to tear it all down and build a few townhomes, from what I understand.

Lots of other resorts in the area, though!

Thanks Woodland,

I know there are a ton of resorts in the area, however I used to go there with my mom and dad as a kid every year. As I got older I stopped going up there with them cuz (God forgive me crazy.gif) I wasn't a big fisherman at the time.

Now that I got hitched I was hoping to get back up there with the new wife.

Hey Hermy,

I think Butch and Nevs is like a lot of the older resorts that found themselves in a situation where they had some cabins that were in deserate need of updating, on land that was worth more as a piece of real estate, than they could ever make operating as a resort with old cabins. So they are trying to cash in.

We hear the story each summer, people that have great childhood memories of vacationing at resorts, that are now townhomes, associations or "private compounds". They are now starting the same traditions with thier own families, after realizing how valuable a week at the lake can be.

Make sure you do your "homework", when looking for a place to stay!

Good Luck!

Steve

Hey Woodland,

I see a lot of people talking about your resort on Miltona. My parents just bought a place on Miltona and I'm kinda new to the area, but I was wondering exactly where your resort is? Thanks. By the way, we were out there on Sunday - Tuesday and fishing was pretty good.

KK,

Woodland is on the east side of Miltona, about 1/2 mile north of the golf course. We have the tan colored units.

Where is your parents place? Miltona can be such a fun lake to fish, and the water is super clean. Its nice to let the kids play at the beach or drag them through the water on a tube and not have to worry about swimmers itch, alge, etc.

By the way, fishing was good last weekend, for you? Mostly targeting walleye, or did you find the slabs?

Stop by and say hi sometime!

My parents place is in the Sandy Beach area on East Sandy Beach. We targeted the slabs in the morning and afternoon and then Walleyes during the twilight time. Are the crappies just starting to move in or are they on the way out?

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
