Fishing Marina

Fishing & Boating Fun Starts at Our Marina

Let’s face it, when people come to stay at Horseshoe Bay Lodge, the main attraction is Leech Lake and its 126,000 acres of pristine waters, 640 miles of shoreline, and its perfect setting for a day of swimming, boating and fishing. For your convenience, our resort operates a full-service marina featuring 60 boat slips and a private boat launch that accepts water craft of all sizes. We also stock live bait, and one of our experienced dock hands would be glad to clean your fish, provide daily fishing reports, or help you get your boat into the water. If you want a guide to show you the lake’s hotspots for Walleye, Largemouth Bass, Perch, Northern Pike, or whatever your favorite fish is, we can arrange that too. We even have a lighted, 24/7 fish cleaning facility for our guests, and offer fishing and pontoon boat rentals for a day or week of water fun. For more seasoned anglers, Leech Lake hosts several summer fishing tournaments. So, contact us today for more information about our marina facilities or to book a reservation at our resort.
