I've been staying a Clark's resorts on the Indian Chain and Cedar Lake. I highly recommend them.
Reasonable rates, clean well maintained, and really good fishing.

Edit to add;
Both Cedar Lake and the Indian chain are family friendly. They are small enough that you are unlikely to get lost and they rarely get windy enough to make fishing difficult. However they are large enough so that you shouldn't get bored. They are also fairly easy to fish with walleye in all the classic spots. Rocks, weeds, wood, flats, and open water. And you can catch them trolling, casting, jigging, rigging, etc.. And the fish bite good during the daytime.

With all due respect (maybe) the Chain has a HUGE walleye population, it's a numbers fishery with a chance for a big fish and in the last 5 years the pike have invaded the Chain from Corner Lake (due to high water over flow) lots of pike some big. The 3 camps on the Chain can rub elbows with almost any camp in the area and are at least 25% cheaper also. No crappie! Don't know where you got your info, but your walleye &pike info is wrong, fished the Chain for 25 years, now I go to Devils Lake, N.D. The Chain doesn't need to apologize to anyone..

Wabigoon and Dinorwic lakes both have a lot of clay soils which is interspersed with rock along the shoreline, when the water level was raised, the water started eroding the clay shorelines and continues to do so to this day, creating the muddy lake floor. After a windy day, areas of these two lakes looks like coffee with cream in it. You can see in many places where the clay has eventually eroded away to rock, I suspect some day in the distant future the shorelines will be mostly rock and the lakes will be much clearer.

I owe you an apology Will, I had my taxes done Wed. and I turn into a BIG A$$hole for a couple of days afterward. We stayed at Indian Lake lodge with owners Bill Ballentyne and then Kevin and Karen Welniak (who now own Busters BBQ) in Vermilion Bay. My younger brother owns a cabin on Indian lake also. The Chain is a numbers fishery, all different year classes of fish, loads of different sizes, you usually work your way through abunch of eater wallys ( 13-15 inchers) to get to bigger fish, that's jig fishing, OR YOU TROLL CRANKS for the bigger fish. When you troll you'll also have a real good chance for a "SKI" or pike. Little Brother got a 30 and a 32 incher (walleye) last year and I saw on here that bobbylfishermon;s wife got a 51 inch musky last fall trolling for walleyes. I've heard nothing but good things about the new owners and the accomadation are still as good as anybodys and are still fairly priced, I would be glad to help out if you need more info..

It's all good. Would you say the numbers are better then eagle? Also what kind of structure would you look for walleye on th Indian chain?

Sounds like it's a pretty good multi species lake.

Nobody has numbers like Eagle except Lac Seul, Eagle was almost a dead sea years ago (netting) and the ministry put the slot into place and saved the lake along with the help of the camp owners. The Chain, Loads of fish,smaller water and any type of structure you could care for, rocky points, mud flats, weed beds, wood, suspending fish, it has it all. We went up spring and fall, everything that swims is "UP" shallow those times of the year, because that's where the forage is, after the second week in June, the fish go down and you fish rock piles and points ( 10-20 ft.) you know, summer haunts, my favorite though, casting shallow running cranks on the outside of stump fields, don't let warm water fool you, there are ALWAYS wallys in that wood, they are resident fish, they live there, yearound, until the cold water pushes them deep for the winter, plus you don't really assume it's a wally you've got on, could be a ski, smallie, pike whitefish. One thing though, The Chain is a very good fishery, but I loved to fish early and late( first 2 hours and last 2 hours of daylight) in those time slots things can be magical.Hope you find place, it's a great area.. Take Care
