Where should I go??

6 posts in this topic

My dad and one of his buddies want to go to Canada fishing this summer and want me to lead them around. Yeah, they just figured it out, so we don't have a lot of time...

Problem is- They don't want to go to the lake I normally fish because there are no walleyes in it (Lower Manitou).

So, as far as guiding them- I will be as blind as they since whereever we go will be my first time on the lake also.

Looking for a spot with a few specifics:

1. Drive in lake within 3-4 hours from the border (I. Falls area)

2. See few other people on the lake. It doesn't need to be the only cabin/resort, but I don't want to see as many people in a day as I would in the lakes around my home.

3. GREAT FISHING! (duh) smile Walleyes and northerns the primary species. Smallies good too. Muskies would be a BIG BONUS for me- they could care less.

4. Have a decent boat/motor package as we aren't sure we will haul my boat.

5. Reasonably priced.

6. Anything else that makes a great trip.

So, any suggestions on lakes and/or resorts would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks a bunch!!

I would say go to Lac Seul, either end...

Walleyes til your arms fall off, beautiful scenery, descent pike, and a shot at a musky

You might want to checkout Pipestone Lake as it has all the species and has excellent opportunities at trophy fish. We have an outpost cabin on the lake and that may be of interest to you. Outfitter 17 is on the Manitou stretch and could probably help you out with some options for walleyes for a few days of the trip.

hey Muskybrian,

Do you have any top notch places to stay at Lac Seul? Anyone can chime in also.

Thanks!

    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
