Ice fishing /LOTW/ places to stay

Recommended Posts

jimmy4218

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!

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54

    • Alex wilhelmi

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
