Looking for a fishing resort near Thunder Bay

We are looking for a clean, peaceful fishing resort on a lake near Thunder Bay.

Our trip only allows us 4 nights in the area. Ideally we would like a place where I can walk outside and fish off a dock. We will book a guide for a 1/2 day as well.

The trick is finding a place within an hour of Thunder Bay so we can go into the city to shop and have a special meal.

I hope to catch some muskie and walleye.

thanks to all who respond

One that I can think of is Dog Lake Resort. It is just 5 miles from our camp so I am very familiar with the area. Here is the link: http://www.doglakeresort.com/ It is within an hour of Thunder Bay. Another one that is 100kms from Thunder Bay located on Lake Kashabowie is Birch Point Resort, here is the link http://www.birchpointresort.ca/. There are quite a few more but most are further away than an hour. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to PM me. Hope you enjoy your trip!!!

Within 1 hour, Dog Lake is your best bet ... won't find Muskie but you will find Northerns and Walleye. I've stayed there and the accomodations are very clean ... Paul or John are the hosts.
