House boat Recommendations

8 posts in this topic

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 just got back Saturday from Kenora. We went out with Houseboat Adventures and I loved it. It was our first time and we will definately do it again.

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
