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.

    • It's an ignorant question asked again for some ignorant reason.  You're voting Hillary and I'm voting Trump.  No need to get so mad.  I have no idea, just like you, if the poles are correct or not. However even someone who feels the need to ask the same ignorant question for a second time realizes Hillary or Trump will be the next President.
    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold?
