Feed the eagles. Play cards later without worrying about getting up too early.
emma: IMHO - you need to get "more helpful" buddies (or family members)....... After all - it's your "vacation trip" also.

That said - You got room for one more???????????

Have been fishing Sunset Country for 25 years. Not this year. Have booked trip to Snowbank Lake, MN next week. Looking forward to it. Not at all happy with our Canadian "friends" to the North. Can't wait til they need our help and we turn our backs on them.

Default Yep

Was supposed to go to Lac Seul Wilderness Resort 7/31-8/6. New owners as of 1/1/20. My heart aches for them right now!! Was going with my 2 sons & another father/son duo.

But we rolled our deposit into 2021 with them and went to Devils Lake 7/25-7/30. Another bucket list destination. Great trip and we caught a lot of fish!!

My wife & I are also going to Lake Vermillion 9/26-9/30!! Another bucket list destination!!

Have one kid left in HS for 2 more years with 2 in college right now, but these destination trips are going to be a lot of fun for years to come!!

Skis- you have a similar family situation as mine- we are a bit older so we started a few years back. The annual trips have been an absolute blessing for us in many ways.

Iím curious to hear about your Devilís Lake trip. Sounds like you did well, how does the environment compare to NW Ontario? Boat traffic? Would you go again?

I didn't have a trip planned this year, so didn't have to deal with any rolling deposits, but when my fishing partner and I decided we wanted to do a trip this September, we chose Flag Island in the NW Angle (going via boat). Unfortunately those resorts have been hurt by the border being closed because not as many people are comfortable going 30 miles via water.

It's a place I've always wanted to fish, and this just seemed like the right year to do it. A little disappointed we can't cross into Ontario waters, but there's so much water up there, I'm sure we'll never get bored.

I live on Lake Vermilion and the resorts are maxed out. Full across the board.

We diverted our trip from Canada for the 2nd week in June to Kabetogama. The weather and the fishing was bad but the company was good.

I live in Park Rapids and it doesn't seem any busier than normal (downtown shopping seems less busy). There might be a few more pleasure boaters than usual. Had a musky trip to Morson planned for a couple weeks ago that we had to cancel but we managed to catch fish around here instead. Walleye fishing has been pretty good lately, hope you do well.
