I've finally convinced my wife that we need to take a fishing vacation like I used to do when I was a kid, going up to friends' cabin in Ontario. I told her the kids are ready and she'd LOVE hammering big pike and walleye all day long, as well as some smallies. Because this summer is already booked with trips and soccer camp, we're planning now for a 2017 trip. We're looking at Canada fishing packages (thanks, Kaare, if you're reading this; Tobin Lake is high on our list). One of the ideas thrown out was a cabin rental/package on a good lake in Minnesota or even southern Ontario. I know a couple of guys on here from MN and I have messaged back and forth on hunting info and one or two of them have offered to help out. If any of you have any information to offer/guide us with our planning, I would be greatly appreciative. We'd probably fly into Des Moines, spend a night with my mom and head north after that. If you have date ranges to consider over others, we'd appreciate that, too, keeping in mind our school schedule is kind of weird in Arizona. School lets out late May and starts early August (yep, you read that right; don't get me started). Thanks in advance!
