Looking for vacation ideas

10 posts in this topic

Looking for your recommendations for good walleye fishing lake with cabins, boat rentals, etc. Possible locations I have looked at so far are Vermilion, Kabetogema, Ely, Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail. This would be a trip for my wife and I. Any information appreciated. Thank you!

I don't have any specific resorts to recommend, and haven't fished Vermilion very much, but ......

I fished a tournament on Vermilion a few years ago and LOVED it. My partner and I keep saying we need to get back there with the wives and kids. Fishing was fantastic, not just for walleyes, the multi-species action we had was really fun. The lake is nice and scenic, a really unique mix of gorgeous vacation homes and undeveloped wilderness. And there's a lot of good vacation amenities in the area that you can get to from the lake, like the casino and some other bar & grills. Try the Vermilion forum for more info.

I also like Kab and Ely and Grand Marais, but for a family vacation I would vote for Vermilion unless you're looking for more seclusion, more wilderness.

Give Ely a shot.

We go (but not this year) up to Timber Trail Lodge in Ely for 8 yrs or so. It is on a chain of lakes. Good Eye and Smallie fishing. Biggest Smallies I've caught up there are a 21 " & 22 1/2. (Released)

Easy fishing also. Just slip bobber fish with tiny glow jigs and leeches.

If you can find them, huge Crappies in Farm lake. I have a 16 1/2" replica from there.

Contact Bill @ Timber trail. You won't be disappointed.

I would definitely go with Vermilion for a family setting. It is absolutely beautiful there and great fishing. Shoot me an email and I can help you with places to fish and stay there.

Check out Cass Lake. Super easy lake to walleye fish, good perch, great muskie and good for everything else. (Raps shallow morning and night) Reasonable resort rates and lots of options. Plus tons of awesome small lakes, plus other great big lakes are nearby.

Rainy Lake is a great fishing lake and beautiful. Big enough to always be able to find your own fish to catch.
