View Full Version : LOTW Resort Recomendations

10-28-2007, 10:20 AM
I am planning to head to LOTW next year for some musky fishing and would enjoy any resort recomendations you guys have. I am looking for a family friendly resort that doesnt need to have a fancy American plan, because I am planning to go with a housekeeping plan thats is reasonably priced.


If only I could catch muskies!

We stayed at Sabaskong Bay Lodge on Cedar Island for a week each of two different years, it is smack in the heart of muskie country and may have what you seek. Don't overlook Split Rock and King Island lodges, either, and there's a nice one on Hay Island, I think it's Duck Bay Lodge but I think it has a meal plan that may be problematic for you, m

Thanks for the help mikie, just curious does Split Rock Lodge have a website because I couldn't find one for it?

Bay Store on Oak Island would be perfect for you for this trip. Check out their web site and message board for info. Great people, clean and very affordable. Jeff Blanck

You might find info here. Google Sunset Country and the tourist folks will send you lots and lots of info. Now, LOTW is a big place. You can check Nestor Falls tourist agency for more info about desinations near there, on the east end of Sabbaskong Bay, or do like was suggested above and look into places in the NorthWest Angle. I hear lots of good things about Frank Walsh's place in the Angle, for example.

There's a whole lot of water up there and many good places to stay, all depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. Do you want to drive to your lodge, drive/park/boat in, or fly in? High end places like Tomahawk Lodge, mid-prices like Red Wing, or on down. Sometimes, shopping is half the fun, so good luck, m

Hey, try looking at Red Deer lodge. It is near Nestor Falls on Sabaskong Bay. I booked a trip up there for nine days this July and the owners were very helpful throughout the whole process. They were more than willing to answer any questions I had andseem to know their stuff. I sent an general e-mail asking about musky fishing in July and got back a lengthy e-mail later that day, which answered all of my questions and more. Both Ray and Roxanne are very friendly, helpful and I am sure they will be just as accomodating.

Hey Eric,
I have been going to Red Wing for the past 13 years and have no complaints. Clean cabins, great fishing and nice host. Give Mike a call and he will send out the musky history charts. He keeps track of all Muskies caught out of his lodge. We go with 6 guys, but I have seen kids banging snotrockets and muskies on the docks. Check to see when the May fly hatch is if your looking for something other than muskies, they do slow the walleye action.
Good luck, Rocket

for the past 3 years we've stayed at Youngs Wilderness Camp at the South East side of LOTW. It is a 10 minute boat ride from Sabaskong, on Steven Bay.

We did alot of traveling to the bigger waters of Sabaskong, but the poor we had in 2007 had us fishing the calmer waters closer to the camp on Steven's Bay. As a group, we saw alot more fish within eye site of the lodge then the previous years making the Sabaskong run.

Nice cabins, great people. Likely one of the shortest rides available for LOTW from Int'l Falls.

Another vote for Red Wing...We stayed for 5 days in 2005 and had a great time. Food is great, Mike really knows the lake. We seen 74 muskies on that short trip, and had action from a couple of 50+ inch fish!

I know this is late, but I recommend Split Rock Lodge also, I will be making another trip with 7 guys this Aug 9-13, I have been going there since 1987 (for some of the guys it has been longer).

Owners name is Mike Dysart, very accomodating. Prices are excellent, fishing is nearby in Stony and Stevens Bay. It is all housekeeping plans.

The group I go with (and me personally) has also fished Red Wing Lodge, Oak Island Resort, Monument Bay Resort and Tamarack Resort on LOTW plus Andersens Resort and Ojibwa Outfitters on Lac Suel in the past 21 years (multiple trips per year) and we still prefer Split Rock.

Here is a link, its not a fancy website but it gives you the info you will need.

I will be the third to recommend Bay Store Camp. Right in the heart of muskie waters. You can run north towards the Narrows or east to the Tug and surrounding area. Frank is very in tune with the lake and muskies and will get you in the right directions to catch the fish. There is always the chance of sighting the infamous Dick Pearson!!!!

We have stayed at Split Rock many times. A good spot to fish from in all directions. We actually fished back towards town more the last couple years and had good luck. Where there is water there are muskies, I guess. Also be nice to Jeff(Mike's helper) and bring him a couple new Playboys.
