Yes that is right-an odd number of fish fillets brought home by our party processed by Ballard's staff! My two person party caught 8 saugers the first day. Ballards processed 3 for our supper per our request. The next morning the official Ballards tally was 3 saugers. We challenged their count 3 times throughout the second day. They assured us... More

I am booked for my 10th year of ice fishing through Ballard's Resort. Their commitment to fishing and great service is what keeps me coming back. They have wonderful people and the accommodations are great for my group. Over the years, we have developed friendships with the staff and the other guests that return the same weekend year after year.

We spent 4 nights/3 days at Ballard's Resort with a group of 54 Plus-60 Club members. There were 40 men and 14 women and I am pretty sure everyone has a great time. Accommodations were clean and comfortable and food was generous and tasty. Each group of 6 had their own fishing boat and guide. The boats were 27' and... More

Everything at Ballard's is great...staff, service, food, drinks, fishing guides. If you have little kids, this is a great spot as they have a nice pool. If little kids are not your thing, steer clear. The pool is overrun by the owner's kids and their friends and family's kids.

Great for large groups or small groups. We had an almost two year old and she was treated really really great by the staff. The shrimp and steak here are really good. Lunch here is always a must for us. We come all the way from Texas to get the fried pork loin sandwich. Well, we come to visit and... More

Loved Ballards! Went for a 4 night, 3 day fishing trip over Memorial Day 2013. The weather was perfect and the fishing was good. My daughter caught a trophy Walleye and we all caught numerous fish. Captain Mer was awesome and we all enjoyed his company. Beautiful grounds and a nice big wooden 'pier'/dock all along the water and plenty... More

We spent three nights at the resort and two days fishing in mid January. The service was great and the staff friendly. The ice house was clean and they made it comfortable for the ladies in our group by providing a heated shack as a porta potty.

The staff at Ballards Resort are awsome -- we stayed with them for 4 nights. The cabin was very clean. The lounge and restaurant are also awsome. We enjoyed our stay, even though we did not catch any fish !
