“I’m that kind of outdoors guy that just loves to be on the water and when you find a great place to stay well then you just keep coming back.
I usually head up to Sunset Point from my home in Illinois at the start of Walleye season for a couple of weeks and then make my way back to Mecca in mid September for fall fishing.
Sunset Point’s fishing resort and cabin rentals is a great place to stay and is centrally located to Walleye ,Bass ,Perch ,Crappie Northern Pike and of the our biggest predator the Giant Muskie.
I highly recommend Sunset Point Minaki.”
