Current Ice Conditions

 

Trader’s Bay is about 80% open water today, April 25.  The remaining ice is very dark and slushy, and not expected to hang around for much longer.  Early ice out crappie fisherman should be able to get out early in May.  Shingobee Bay is open and Agency Bay is about the same as Trader’s Bay.  There has been no wind for the last two days, although the ice is disappearing at a fast rate.  No worries about ice for 2009’s Fishing Opener.

 

We are running new rates for May, for a group of four or more the rate is $40 per person per night with a two night minimum.  We have three cabins left open for 2009’s Opener and throughout May, 1 bedroom @ $150 a night, 2 bedroom @ $160 per night and a 3 bedroom at @ $220 a night. 

 

Do you have a large group?  We also have our reunion homes, Cedars and Shoreview available for various dates through out the month.

  

Winter Recap   

 

A great winter has just passed by; good ice, great fishing and catching up with family and friends.

Most fish our guests brought in this winter were harvested from the Goose Island and Otter Tail Point area of Leech Lake, about 2 miles from the resort.  A small community of ice fisherman formed each week-end about 300 yards in front of our resort, on the west side of Trader’s Bay.  Fishermen were spread out running parallel with the shoreline up and down the Bay.  Fishing in 16’of water with a minnow and a jig, even perch fisherman were pulling in the walleye. 

 

Steve, my husband cleans all the fish our guests bring in for no charge.  Talk about some nice boneless filets, you can get them at our bait shop.  One week-end he cleaned just over 700 fish in three days.  There is nothing better than happy guests leaving with their limits.

 

Spring and Summer Outlook

 

Walleye can be found in the rock area of Pine Point this spring, or travel up to Goose Island or Otter Tail Point.  We are centrally located on Pine Point making it easy to get around the large lake with out burning a lot of gas.

 

Opener will be great, fisherman will be bringing in their limits of walleye and northern and will have a great time.

Any favorite fishing spots you have fished in the past are going to produce.  If you don’t want to go far, trolling in front of the resort up and down the west side of Trader’s Bay will be hot too.  Use a jig and minnow in the spring until the water temperature reaches 60 degrees, then leeches and nightcrawlers become an effective bait too. 

 

We have a covered protected harbor where your boats will be safe, dry and have electrical hook ups.  The fee is $25 a day or $115 for the week.  When you arrive we will unpack your cars and trucks, bring your luggage and coolers to your cabin, launch your boat (if you like), store the trailer, clean and package your fish for you.  When it comes time to depart we will take the boat out and bring it to your cabin if you need to pack it up.  We offer great service so our guests can get to vacationing as soon as they arrive.  Our goal is to make your day.
