Hello, 

I'm looking for some feedback on family friendly fishing resorts, if I'm crossing at International Falls MN coming from the Chicago area.  I'm an avid fisherman, but I'm taking my family with including my elderly mother and grandson.  

So i'm looking for some help finding a lodge that may offer a more family friendly atmosphere.  I've been striking out on google and trip advisor.  

Thanks All!!
