Vacation help in the Hayward/Spooner/Rice Lake area

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks!

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.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
