Vacation help in the Hayward/Spooner/Rice Lake area

4 posts in this topic

Next summer about this time (mid July) we are planning on taking a family vacation with one or two other couples.

There will be some kids on the trip- all under 8 years old.

The women won't fish alot- so they will be looking for other things to do.

So, I guess I am looking for a place that has the all/some of the following:

1. I would prefer a musky lake- or one real near by. Size of muskies is no real concern- I'm the only musky guy in the group (at this time-however, one of the other guys catches a few and that will change!)

2. Would prefer a clear water type lake- but not a necessity

3. Good fishing for panfish/bass/walleyes, etc- for the kids and women.

4. Something more to do on the site- playground, game room, etc.

5. Good sized town nearby for off times/rainy periods.

6. Nice clean place- would like it to have a large cabin so all families could fit into one- 6 adults and 4 kids. We are not looking for the most extravagant place in the world, but a decent rate would be great too!

7. Good people running the resort.

Thanks for the help guys!

I'd recommend getting the musky fishing wisconsin guidebook put out by (i think) Sportsmans Connection

find one near Hayward that looks decent. You could always go to the Chippewa Flowage, but thats like an hour from Hayward I think

I should have said that I've fished a bunch of the lakes in the Hayward area, so I know about most of the musky lakes..I have never fished that area for other species- so that is where I am hoping the help will come in, along with the other amenities.

Do Lost Land and Teal have resorts on them? That is a nice area- minus the landing on LLL- at least when I was there a year or so ago.

Lost Land Lake Lodge is the only one I know of there. Can't tell you much about the accommodations but if you wanted to water ski or go tubing, that would be out since there's a 10 mph speed limit of both lakes. It's also a long ways from town, close to an hours drive.

There's Lakeview Resort on Grindstone and Lac Courte Orielles has Pine Shores and Trails End Resort. Those two lakes are 20 minutes from Hayward and 10 minutes from the casino. There's also a couple of resorts on Round Lake which is a great lake for swimming, skiing, and pretty decent fishing plus you'd only be 10 minutes from the Chippewa Flowage.

    • let me know what ya think. we also use this process with turtle!!!!!!!! but somehow moms turtle is always just a bit better!!!!
    •   Those folks in the Middle East got rich, starting in the 70's with the oil embargo and the take over of the oil companies in the Mid East.   The disintegration of Lebanon and the Iran revolution were steps in the progression of Radical Islam in the Middle East which, through modern media, has begun to spread world wide.     The middle east strain of radical Islam has evolved their tactics and adopted terrorism as a main line tactic in that period.    It is aggravated by the great division and conflict between Shia with Iran as their leader, and Sunni with the Saudis.     Throughout history Islam has gone expansionist and violent, either as a cause or an excuse.  Christianity did the same thing back in history, but it has been quite a while.    That's what happened.   At least that is the way I see it.      
    • He was confused. "Last night in Sweden" was probably a chickpea film he watched the other night at Mara Lago with the boys. 
    • And yet through the 60's,70's and 80's there was a broad wave of conversion to Islam because it was a religion of peace.  You didn't see Lou Alcindor, Cassius Clay, Mike Tyson (save the ear thing) Reggie Rutland and a host of other prominent athletes doing terrorist things or going on jihads.    So what exactly happened that over a decade a religion went from peaceful to radical and what's to say another one won't follow suit when history already shows it has in the past? 
    • the only way I was not happy with rabbit was when I smoked some.  did that with a "tree rat" and that I thought was good smoked.  enjoy your feast!!
    • How about supply and demand? People are coming here because there is a demand for them and in the free market that Goppers have been preaching for half a century at least the level of immigration will be determined by the need for them. Government should merely be responsible for providing the mechanism that they need to become citizens in a timely manner that satisfies the marketplace.     
    •   That is my concern regarding wild rabbit. I don't want to dry the hell out of them so grilling is out. Gonna try Smurfy's  recipe tonight. I haven't eaten  rabbit in ages but remember them being tasty.    Appreciate and thanks to all that responded
    • @Jim Uran they are coming out with bigger batteries. I am going to get the 6 amp batteries and you can get  a car charger to keep your batteries charged up. I am running 3 amp batteries but I have 3 of them
    •   That's what I thought. Thank you for being honest once.     How do you figure? The average minimum wage in Mexico is around $5.00 per day so my guess would be that anything above that would be prosperous to those people.     That's the cost of freedom, and it's not a tax. That sounds like fake news.     So, your above point is moot. Got it.     Who wants to increase immigration? Allowing immigrants to become legal through the political process and the law is the exact answer to the problem that I am proposing but you just won't see it because Trump told you you need a wall. Open your eyes.     You and I know that "stealing" from your fellow man is a completely different situation than the victim less crime of crossing a political border. You admitted you would do it too if you needed to. Needing a coat or a better car is the reason most cross the border in the first place. That argument doesn't apply unless you passed laws to make it impossible to get a car or a coat but that's not the case, is it? You're ignoring the fact that the vast majority of those illegals you hate would never be able to enter at all or it would take many years, sometimes decades and the costs would be prohibitive. I don't condone the actions but they are living in poverty and I can see how you would take that chance in order to provide a better life for your family.     Now it's your turn.
