Resort News


We've got a good bite happening right now.  Everything is hitting.  Quite a few walleyes were caught.  They were hitting off the dock and on the lake.  The bite hasn't been fantastic, but people were catching them.  They seem to be at 14 to 17 feet of water and hitting both leeches and crawlers.

The bigger sunnies are starting to hit.  They males are on the beds.  The females are in the pencil weeds not far from the beds.  I saw a lot of good ones this weekend.  Several of them over ten inches long and fat.  Leeches seem to be the ticket.  Work your way through the weeds and you can find them.

The crappies are getting started.  Several limits were caught in the past few days.  Small Rapala's, twister tails and now crappie minnows are the best baits.  One boat had 17 crappies and 14of them were over 12 inches.  Nice !

Bass pretty much done spawning.  They are moving off the beds and getting more aggressive.  Spinner baits will take the active fish but using soft plastics and a slower presentation will get fish as well.

Dock Report - a lot of walleyes have been caught the last few days.  Now the panfish are moving in around the dock.  It's a mixed bag off the dock, never know what you're going to catch.

 Don't forget about the lodge unit we opened.  It's going over well.  2 bedroom ground level unit. $130.00 a night for up to 4 people.  I will rent it for any length of time but hoping it will help some of those folks who want a friday, saturday, sunday.

We have a lot of short stays open throughout the entire summer. Give us a call if you have a few days off.
