Resort News


Fishing is pretty good for this time of year. Sunfish have moved out on to the bars. I've seen some nice stringers this past week.  Half Mile Bar and 2 Mile Bar have been producing some good numbers of both Sunnies and Crapppies.  Most were average size but there were some dandies mixed in.  Leeches and crawlers for sunnies with leeches working best.  Sunnies are in 8 feet of water, right on the bottom.  Crappies coming on minnows and leeches. 


We have been hammering largemouth on spinner baits in 4 feet of water or less.  They are next to the flat grass and very aggressive.  Running the baits just under the surface has been triggering some explosive hits and great action.  I got eleven friday evening, great fun.  And we always pick off a few northerns along the way.  Catch them in shallow water and hang on !


Only a few walleye being caught but no one really fishing for them lately.  I really can't get a good read on them.

!!! We have one cabin and one motel unit open for Labor Day Weekend  !!!

If you are looking for some great fishing action, plan a trip for September.  The bite gets going after Labor Day and generally the fishing gets better the colder it gets.  Water temps start to drop and a lot of the bait fish have been eaten.  The fish really get aggressive.  If you have the time try and get to the lake.

Something new for this year.  Cabin 7 has been completely winterized and will be open all year long.  So whether you are a fisherman or hunter we will have a spot for you no matter how cold it gets.  Motel units will also be open so we will have a couple of options if you want to come.
