Self-dubbed the "Walleye Fishing Capital of the World," Mille Lacs Lake teems with year-round outdoor activity and multiple species of trophy-size finny friends. Continuing a 70-year-old tradition that began with Dagon of the Philistines, Garrison Sports and Twin Pines conduct thrice-daily four-hour fishing expeditions on the lake. Steel boats spanning 36 sink-resistant feet accommodate up to 20 sea dogs in search of walleyes, northern pikes, smallmouth bass, and mammoth muskies, some measuring more than 50 inches in length. A complete line of bait and tackle is available. Post angling, guests may explore other area attractions, such as gaming, golf, snowmobiling, bird watching, and birds that watch back.
Visitors feel cozy as a fish in water relaxing in Garrison Inn's rustic wicker-backed furniture or drying off by the roaring fireplace in the lobby. Double-occupancy rooms come with standard amenities, which include televisions and free wireless Internet. Guests with an insatiable appetite for aqua can complement a day on the lake with a swim or inflatable-shark duel in the inn's indoor heated pool or spa whirlpool. Come morning, complimentary continental breakfast fills hollow sea legs with hot coffee, hearty pancakes, and pastries in a homey, wallpapered milieu.
