Thur Oct. 30

Happy Halloween. A snow advisory goes into effect for tonite thru Friday morning with a few inches of snow and strong winds! Sounds alot more like a trick than a treat! The weather next week is looking pretty good for some late season musky/ grouse/bow hunting. We still have 180 feet of the south dock in the water so you'll have plenty of dock space.

Monday, Oct. 20

Some walleyes and some muskies reported by Matt Mcintee.  People are all seeing grouse but shooting them is another story. Another cool misty day.....the sun is supposed to come out tomorrow--isn't that a song....... Not much time left to take advantage of Phil's end of the season special so call today!

Wed Oct 15

The weather is upper 50's and sunny this afternoon with even better the next few days.
Things have quieted down around the Northwoods and Sunrise for the last 10 days of the season.
The next few weeks are my favorite time of the year!
 Come on up and enjoy the fall beauty, peace and quiet, fishing, hunting, etc.

Monday, Oct. 6

A brilliant blue sky replaces the dark skies and cool temps we saw this weekend.
Another cranberry fest in the books. Pumpkin fest this weekend.
It is definitely Musky time. We held a musky tourney this weekend and 18 legal fish were caught.
A 46.75 inch tiger won first place.
The forecast looks good so we hope to see you soon. The dining room is serving 3 meals daily thru Oct. 25

Thursday, Sept. 25

The fall colors are the best in years.
The 70 degree days with abundant sunshine sure make them awesome.
The next week should be the best combo of colors/weather this fall. Bring your camera!

Monday, Sept. 22

The colors are spectacular.
Red, orange and yellow mixed with green and gold.
The weather forecast is great as well so drop what you are doing and join us for a few days....always room for 1 more.

Monday, Sept. 15

A wet stretch of weather is behind us.
The 10 day forecast is very nice and it is coming at a great time for the fall colors and fall fishing.
Scarecrow Fest was a huge success last weekend and the Fall season brings a variety of local festivals from Beef O Rama, Cranberry Fest, and Colorama.


Thursday, Oct. 30

Musky action has been almost all suckers. It has been hit and miss. Arnie Hoving caught a nice 47.25 incher and mike Yahr caught a fat 45 inch tiger. Water temp is 45 degrees and the water level is still high.  We spent some time in the woods small game hunting this weekend and kicked up a few grouse, woodcock and rabbits....but they are all safe except for a couple of red squirrels. I have all the snowmobiles fired up and ready to go--snow is in the forecast for this afternoon and tonite!

Wed. Oct. 15

The youth deer hunt last weekend was a huge success.
Small game, archery, waterfowl, and wolf hunts are underway.
The musky fishing has been excellent.
Matt McIntee and friends boated a 30 pounder and had action from 6 other fish today.
Life is good with so much to do and so little time.

Monday, Oct. 6

Fishing for muskies is fantastic. The water temp is in the low 50's and the sucker bite is really on.
The Pandl group caught a bunch of pike and several had big gashes on their backs where the muskies tried to make them dinner. Duck, grouse and deer (bow) hunting is in full swing.

Thursday, Sept 25

Thomas Kolling caught a 25.5 inch walleye last night and Bob Rosinsky landed a fat 18 incher off the dock without a net.
Come on up and enjoy fishing in the colorama wonderland!

Monday, Sept 22

The walleye bite is still strong--once you locate them. Mostly on jig and minnow. 
The upcoming warm up will continue the crappie action in the shallows. Mini mites and crawlers have been working.
The guys in Exec. 2 were cleaning 40 or more nice perch Sunday. Congrats to Ken Mathwig who shot his first bear.
Joe and I have been seeing deer while bow hunting ( a few bucks) but have got no shots off yet.
Duck season is just around the corner so there is plenty to do in the great outdoors.

Monday Sept. 15

The Zunker group caught some muskies up to 43 inches, 24 inch walleye, and northerns up to 29.5 inches.
Behind the islands was the hot spot.

Wednesday, Sept. 10

Roger and Jerry hammered the crappies the past couple of days on minnows. Musky action is picking up. Some nice perch are also being caught. Walleye and Northern action has been slow on LVD. Jay did catch quite a few on Twin last night.

Bear, deer bow and grouse hunt seasons have begun and other seasons will start soon.

How can there be self-help "groups"?


What is up with those comeback kid Lions??? The Pack will be there in the end, but I am not so sure of those bickering Bears and garbage time Jay.

Go Pack Go!

 I have to admit I believe the Bears will be pretty good this year but the Pack has our ace in the hole...........Jay Cutler!

Augie - Here is that picture of you wearing a Packer shirt....again and again!
It isn't easy being green. Looks like he'll be wearing this classy shirt again next summer.

Go Packers !
