Help - I am helping to plan a fishing trip for approximately 15 people - we have our own boats. Looking for a really nice resort that can accommodate 15 people in one cabin/house. Would prefer a resort that also has activities for kids/swimming/beaches.
Main goal is to catch walleye... Would prefer less than a 6 hour drive from the Twin Cities....
I need all the help I can get. I currently am looking at Island View Lodge and Cabins on Rainy Lake but more interested in Timber Bay Lodge because they have an incredible huge log house available. Are you or anyone else familiar with either of these locations. Timber Bay Lodge is located on Birch Lake in Babbitt, MN??
Two great choices! it's always a good time up by the boundry waters canoe area. Rainy is an incredible fishery and area, I have not heard of Timber Bay but being near the Boundry Waters I'm sure its awesome.
I guess my only concern would be with lakes you can fish up there some have motor restrictions but I'm sure you could find something that allows motors or bigger motors.
It's a good idea to try to find something soon. The better resorts are filling up fast and I'm sure most are already booked full for July. Particularly with a group of that size. You might want to google The Minnesota Resort Association, they list hundreds of resorts all over the state.
The secret to fishing is to catch the biggest fish and to catch it early.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
