Hi Everyone ~

     It is just so hard to believe that we are so close to June already!  Our game fishing season has been open since May 15th, but the bass season opens this Saturday, May 27th.  Some nice big bass have been biting!  We hope they’ll continue to thrill our fishermen after the season opens.  It seems every year they just know that you will put them back in when they bite preseason.  Nonetheless, they are fun for those who do catch them even if they go back in the lake.

     We just had a pretty last-minute cancellation for Blackhawk Point for the week of June 3 to 10.  This home can be rented as a four bedroom, two bath, two living rooms, two dining areas, and two kitchens or as two separate two bedroom units.  If you are looking to come up very soon, we would love to help.  We also have openings yet for weeks from June 10 through and July 8.  We have openings in two and four bedrooms over that time.  From August 5 and on, there are various openings also.  It’s a great time to plan now for your get away to the beautiful Northwoods.  We also have deluxe boats with 40 and 50 hp motors, a fishing pontoon with a 50 hp motor, and regular 15′ fishing boats with 15 hp pull-start and electric-start motors.   Just give us a call to 906-358-4390 or call or text my cell at 715-360-6650.

     Thanks much.  We hope to see you soon
