Seven of us spent a week fishing at the resort. The owner John, showed us the area to fish, and plowed a road out on the ice to get to the area. We limited out in perch,northern pike,and several walleye (too big to keep). I highly recommend this to anyone who likes fishing. We had an excellent fishing trip.
