• fish and people fishing. text: Guided Fishing trips to some of the best fishing in North America!


The fishing opportunities at Nelson’s Resort are endless. Crane Lake and its sister lakes on the American/Canadian border provide untold structure and an inexhaustible supply of Walleye, Northern Pike, Musky, Small Mouth Bass as well as pan fish.

It all begins with the exceptional services offered at our marina. Bring your own boat or choose from our fleet of well equipped Lund boats with Mercury outboards.

Don’t make those bait and tackle decisions without first talking with our experienced staff to determine what’s hot!

Ten expert guides are ready to take you to their favorite time-tested spots. Enjoy a Nelson’s shore lunch where the guide cleans the fish you just caught and cooks them on an open fire on a scenic shore. Nothing Compares! Don’t forget to leave a little something for those patient gulls!

If you have never savored a shore lunch, you are in for one of the most special treats of a lifetime! Head to a nearby rock island and leave the menu up to your guide.

With over 40 miles of lakes this is both the fisherman’s and the boaters paradise. There are many hours of bays, rivers, and shoreline to explore.

When you arrive, be sure to purchase current detailed maps of the lakes. Individual maps are available at the Nelson’s Trading Post and show great detail.

Nelson’s can launch your boat, outfit you with a rental boat, or set you up with an experienced guide to help you find the Wallies, Northern and Bass.

He’ll even help cook your shore lunch!
