Looking for vacation ideas

Recommended Posts

Looking for your recommendations for good walleye fishing lake with cabins, boat rentals, etc. Possible locations I have looked at so far are Vermilion, Kabetogema, Ely, Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail. This would be a trip for my wife and I. Any information appreciated. Thank you!

I don't have any specific resorts to recommend, and haven't fished Vermilion very much, but ......

I fished a tournament on Vermilion a few years ago and LOVED it. My partner and I keep saying we need to get back there with the wives and kids. Fishing was fantastic, not just for walleyes, the multi-species action we had was really fun. The lake is nice and scenic, a really unique mix of gorgeous vacation homes and undeveloped wilderness. And there's a lot of good vacation amenities in the area that you can get to from the lake, like the casino and some other bar & grills. Try the Vermilion forum for more info.

I also like Kab and Ely and Grand Marais, but for a family vacation I would vote for Vermilion unless you're looking for more seclusion, more wilderness.

Give Ely a shot.

We go (but not this year) up to Timber Trail Lodge in Ely for 8 yrs or so. It is on a chain of lakes. Good Eye and Smallie fishing. Biggest Smallies I've caught up there are a 21 " & 22 1/2. (Released)

Easy fishing also. Just slip bobber fish with tiny glow jigs and leeches.

If you can find them, huge Crappies in Farm lake. I have a 16 1/2" replica from there.

Contact Bill @ Timber trail. You won't be disappointed.

I would definitely go with Vermilion for a family setting. It is absolutely beautiful there and great fishing. Shoot me an email and I can help you with places to fish and stay there.

Check out Cass Lake. Super easy lake to walleye fish, good perch, great muskie and good for everything else. (Raps shallow morning and night) Reasonable resort rates and lots of options. Plus tons of awesome small lakes, plus other great big lakes are nearby.

Rainy Lake is a great fishing lake and beautiful. Big enough to always be able to find your own fish to catch.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
