Ice fishing /LOTW/ places to stay

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for a place to stay at LOTW? Some friends and I are hoping to go at the end of January and are starting to plan for it.

We stay at the Lake Road. Small Motel but clean rooms and great fish cleaning area. Close to all the resorts. If your looking for a cabin I would check out the lakeofthewoodsmn website and you can get all the contact info you need for many many resorts and hotel/motels.

We have stayed at Sportsmans, Adrians, RiverBend and Zipple Bay Resort and all were very good and nice people.

If your staying or fishing the Rainy River I highly recomend The Royal Dutchman. Doug and Marylin do a great job up there.

You might want to think about renting a sleeper shack. I don't know what kind of money you are looking to spend, but they are fun (I think it was $80 per person for one night and 2 days of fishing-bait is included)! I stayed in one of Adrian's last year and had a blast. One nice thing is you can use any of their houses on the lake that isn't occupied...and they have alot of fish houses out there, so you can move around alot. Just a thought....

As a fellow CPAP user, I can certainly sympathize with your plight. You might want to consider looking into what the cost would be to rent a small Honda generator. They have them at an outpost camp I stay at in Ontario. They are very easy to operate and run hush-hush quiet. I also use one at my deer camp. Good luck on your LOW trip! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

we have always stayed at the river's bend resort. they are friendly and make every effort to keep you on fish. not mentioning any specific resort, but be aware of resorts that have tons of shacks that they service. the fish tend to quit biting when the sun goes down. it is nice to get picked up quickly when that happens and get back into the comfort of the cabin. we see the larger resorts still hauling people in 2 or more hours after we have been taken back in. they just dont have the number of vehicles to get everyone that they have out there off in a timely manner. all those resorts are great places to visit when you are done fishing. best of luck, that lake is really hit and miss if you dont have your own gear and mobility. i.e. fish shallower close to the island early and late and deeper during the day for the saugers.

Well SFBOY I dunno.....Early and late ice anyways on the eastside areas I like to fish the best bite don't even start till the end of the day once the "Bomber Races" as we call them begin! Many evenings they're snappin way good still after the tourisits and the sun have both been long gone also. It's just not that well known and those in the know are for the most part tightlippers! Think way shallow moving water. 2 winters back my biggest fish of the entire winter came at 1am in 9 fow, and no it was'nt a Burbot or Sturgeonfish!

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
