Hi guys, Looking to take my wife and four kids to Ontario this summer, and would like to find a very productive lake. Will be taking my own boat so would probably go with a driveto resort but would consider a boatin if not to far out or pricey. main target would be northern pike. Muskies and lake trout would be a bonus for me. Would like to stay in the price range of maybe 1000 to 1500 for the week.

Again not looking for size but would like to have the children have a chance to catch many fish. any suggestions on camps? Will cross the boarder at international falls or pigeon river.

Thanks

We have a boat in outpost cabin on Pipestone Lake that would fit the bill. Prices are reasonable and in the range you mentioned. Pipestone has some real good fishing for northern, smallmouth, lake trout, muskie, and walleye. The walleye fishing is more difficult as it is a clear trout water lake, but still produces some decent numbers and size if you put in your time. The other species are more abundant and easier to catch. Take a look at our HSOforum and if you have any qyuestions, let me know.

Hey Fishentime,

Welcome to FishingMinnesota, I think you will find tons of info on this HSOforum to not only help you find places to go, but to also put more fish in your boat.

I own 2 boat in fishing resorts and a boat in outpost in ontario, either option would be great for your family. We have excellent Lake Trout, Muskie, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass.

We are currently building a new HSOforum, but you can view the old one at www.campmanitoufishing.com

If you have any questions, just e-mail me at campmanitou@hotmail.com or you can call me at 218-244-7019

Merry Christmas

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
