We are very excited to announce the addition of a 24' Pontoon boat to our rental boats. The Pontoon seats 9 people and is great for the whole family whether you are fishing or just out for a ride. The pontoon is $500 for a week and $100 a day. Like all our boats it comes with all safety equipment and first tank of gas.
The snow is starting to fall! We have about an inch, Now is the time to start planning your winter vacation. Along with all the wonderful winter activities this year Houghton is hosting the U.S. National Cross-Country Skiing Championship The first week in January. This is a great time to come up and see members of the US Olympic Ski team along with professionals from around the country. Also as usual Michigan Techs famous Winter Carnival will be held this year the first week in February. This is something worth checking out for the whole family!
Well here we are its already July and what a great fishing season it has already been, We have had pike to 40", tons of 3-5 lb Small mouths, and Walleyes are on the rebound with good fish showing up each week. The wind has been a challenge the last couple of weeks here in the north but it has not bothered the fish at all. We still have a couple of opening the last week of July and some in Aug so there is still time to come up and get in on the hot fishing.
Well spring has finally arrived in the Keweenaw, and the fishing is off to a good start the Walleyes are being caught on the points outside of the spawning areas. Th bass are in spawn and prespawn on the gravel banks and the Pike are in the shallow emerging weed beds. Crappies are also showing up near the pilings. The next couple of weeks should be prime time for the spring bite.
It is -32 wind chill today the resort is snowed in for the next few months, but spring will come and the ice will melt, so now is the time to book your summer vacation. The fishing last year was really on the uptick , the final open week last fall we caught several Pike over 15 lbs, some real nice Walleyes 2 over 6 lbs and the Smallmouths always seem to be biting.
For those of you who have not heard Diana and I have the resort back and are looking forward to seeing are many friends that we have not seen for a couple of years. We will be at the Tinley Park Sports Show on Feb 8th-9th, if you are in the Chicagoland area that weekend come by and see us.
We look forward to seeing you this summer,
Paul & Diana Shingledecker
