A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
45 years ago my grandfather, Dick Lindmeier bought Northshore Lodge. My Mom, Gail, and Dad, Rod, worked at the resort until 1972 when they purchased Pine Grove Camp and in 1976 they purchased their first outpost. Mom and Dad ran the camp and outposts along with a motel and restaurant for 32 years. I am the third generation to catch the camp owner bug and our family at Northwinds know how to take care of customers. We understand fishermen and know how to make a fishing or hunting trip a success.
Choose from a variety of lakes.
Pine Grove is our base camp, a motel and cottage resort on Highway 17 in Vermillion Bay, your jumping off spot. We have daily “fly in” and “drive in” packages from here for those who want modern accommodations with cable TV, carpeting throughout, individual beds all the amenities with daily maid service and a different lake every day. Even high speed internet!
From Pine Grove our guides will take you on daily adventure trips. On a 5-day trip you can fish 5 different lakes. My brother Scott and I have been fishing the lakes around Vermilion Bay for over 20 years.
We will use all our combined knowledge to take you to the best lakes in the area. From Pine Grove we use new Chevy trucks and deluxe boats to access over a dozen quality fisheries, including Lac Seul, Ord, Cedar, Indian, Clay, Lake X and many more. This flexibility allows our customers the piece of mind of knowing that they are fishing the most productive water. If a lake is “hot” (fish biting) we will be fishing it. If it is not then we will be elsewhere. This flexibility also means that our customers are in charge. They decide what species they are after and we will take them to the best lake for that species. Our operation keeps people on fish…period! If you are looking for a comfortable resort where fishing is the #1 priority, look no further! All your favourite species are available including walleye, northern, smallmouth bass, muskie, lake trout and whitefish.
After fishing with our guides you will also be a better angler. All of us will teach you many new techniques and approaches to fishing you have never used before.
