Melgeorges resort on Elephant Lake

Recommended Posts

Well, for anyone looking for a nice getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the every day grind, take a good look at Melgeorges resort on Elephant lake.

The cabins seem very nice with some rustic log cabins. All the convieneces of home included. Just bring your food and drink or maybe relax a bit more and go to the lodge overlooing the lake and enjoy a meal.

As far as the fishing in Elephant, we fished for crappies and I can say this, some very nice crappies running near that 15" mark with many perch, walleye and all some of those hard fighting smallmouth.

Check out Melgeorges for a fun getaway with the family or friends.

All I can say is that the cabins are very nice in a private natural setting with a gorgeous view of lightly developed Elephant Lake. Not only was the fishing very good but it's also great for those folks wanting to hike, snowmobile or observe nature.

We found loads of respectable crappies, walleyes and jumbo perch. It's definitely a great location for those who looking to get away from it all and relax.

Talk about a slice of heaven 10 miles down a scenic drive off of a main highway. Secluded, gorgeous, well kept, comfortable, and lets sneak in some great fishing.... Try to beat it, might be tough. If you don't want the crazy hustle and bustle of a lake with multiple resorts, if you want a cabin with wonderful settings, if you want to get away from your busy life and just relax, plus get some great fishing with great fish like we found. Elephant Lake and Melgeorges Resort are first class and a perfect get away.

If you want to fish, snowmobile, hike, or just get away for the weekend this is the place to go.

The cabins have all the comforts of home with a real nice rustic feel to them. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of every day life on a lake that, as stated before, has some very respectable crappie fishing. I spent a weekend there and didn't want to leave.

If you're looking for a place to get away, catch some real nice crappies, and just plain relax, Melgeorges is the place to go.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
