Walleye...From Water to the Wall

We love hearing from our guests. Last year, Carl Chaney of Fremont, NE had a great 10 days of fishing on East Silent Lake. As you can see, he didn’t have any problem finding walleye. In fact, he hammered them, including a 9 lb 29 inch beauty. Over the winter, he had his walleye mounted at Wildlife Creation in Omaha, NE. His East Silent Lake Walleye is now displayed proudly in his home. Will he have this good of luck in 2009??? According to the Minnesota DNR Fisheries Management, his chances are GREAT!

Water Toys at East Silent Resort!

Without a doubt…the water trampoline and human launch were a huge hit with kids last year. We love water toys. In fact, we love them so much we brave 40-50 degree water temps to anchor the toys each spring. That was the scene last weekend. After a serious game of Paper, Rock, Scissors…Andy took the plunge into CHILLY East Silent Lake. As you can see…he managed to get everything anchored – even the NEW slide!!! Now we just need some kids!!! If you haven’t booked for 2009, call now. We still have a few prime summer openings!

What A Crappie!

We hope everyone is having a relaxing Memorial weekend. We are sure enjoying the warmer weather here at East Silent Resort. Just thought we’d share this great photo. As the spawn comes to a close and the fish start their move back to deeper water, many anglers put up their crappie gear and transition into fishing for bass and other fish species. Not Blaine! Blaine caught the massive crappie off the main dock yesterday. What a catch!

One Huge Bird!!!

Everyone seems to love East Silent Resort! Even birds. Andy captured these great photos of The Heron…a daily guest. The Heron is usually found perched on the swim raft or water trampoline. However, when the resort is quite, especially in the morning, he grazes on minnows and small fish in front of the beach. Visit East Silent Resort this summer and meet The Herron, The Loons, and many other impressive birds.

CSB/SJU Reunion at East Silent Resort

Last weekend East Silent Resort hosted the 1st Annual Silent Stock. Johnnies and Bennies from the classes of ’01, ’03, ’06, and ’11 enjoyed a weekend of boat rides, a BBQ, a bonfire, and lots of catching up.  The weather was a little chilly, but it was nice enough for the ladies of ’03 to enjoy relaxing on the beach and drinking some wine.  And some of the boys from the class of ’01 enjoyed a round of golf at the Wildflower Golf Course.  Everyone agreed it was a great way to kick off the summer.  Next year’s Silent Stock is already scheduled for May 22nd, 2010!  We hope even more Johnnies and Bennies will come enjoy the fun-filled weekend!

Feature on Fargo Valley News Tonight!!!

Hi Everyone...
We just received confirmation that Valley News in Fargo, ND (KVLY 11 & KX 4)will feature East Silent Resort in a news story tonight! Unfortunately, Minnesota loses dozens of resorts each year. Valley News is reporting on what existing resorts (like East Silent Resort) are doing to remain sustainable. We work hard to add new amenities for our guests, like the water trampoline, toys, etc. Guests, especially kids, enjoy our many activities and events. We also take pride in our manicured grounds and comfortable cabins...which are updated almost annually. It is our wonderfully loyal guests, however, that make East Silent Resort SO special!!! We realize there are many vacation destinations. But each year, families return (some for over 50 years). So, thank you GUESTS for choosing East Silent Resort as your "timeless tradition."

The Leonards
