House boat Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I have a group of 8-12 that are entertaining the idea of renting a houseboat. Currently we are not picky on location as long as it has access to Walleye and either Pike or Muskie fishing. We will have access to our own boats and price right now is not etched in stone. Basically looking for experiences that everyone has had and which areas/lakes provided the best overall experience.

Call Rainy Lake Houseboats in I. Falls. I don't have their number, but you can search them online and get it. They have a great operation.

Get Billy Dougherty at Rainy lake Houseboats (co-owner) as your guide... he's a walleye and smallmouth expert on Rainy...

but dig deep... they are ALL expensive and RLHB is good and among the more expensive... the prices you see do not include $5 per gallong gas!!!

Lac Seul Floating Lodges in Hudson, ON. or Sioux Lookout Floating Lodges in Hudson, On. Obviously on Lac Seul which has walleyes everywhere and trophy Musky in the NE region of Lake with Pike and Smallies mixed in. You will not regret it. Figure on $4000 but to split that with your size party you are getting away with a cheap trip. GoodLuck

Kenora has a couple great ones too. Lake of the Woods has every species imaginable and lots to see and do on the lake.

Ontario Wilderness Houseboat Rentals is a good outfit out of Morson, Ontario on Lake of the Woods.

I have gone with Lac Suel Floating Lodges, Sioux Lookout Floating Lodges, Ontario Wilderness on LOW and the Rainy Lake folks. All are outstanding and all are a great trip. They all have their advantages and disadvantages as I see them but the ones that get me into Lac Seul are my favorites. There is some difference in price but with your size group I don't think you will notice much per person.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
