Something AFFORDABLE!!

12 posts in this topic

I am looking for an affordable fishing trip this February on Lake of the woods. It would be myself, my 2 sons, my nephew, and my dad. The problem I have been running into is that I am seeing no family or kid discounts for ice fishing packages for resorts on LOW. Frequently they are asking for around $100 a day per person. That adds up when I'm trying to pay for me and 3 kids for a few nights and days fishing!! Are there any resorts that rent houses with a flat rate for the size of the house rented, or are they all "per person"?

Thanks ~piker

Click on the Riverbend link above, and go to winter on their web site. Scroll down to the bottom of the rate page there are kids discounts offered there. If you're going up during mid week they offer mid week package discounts. Ask for Charlie or Judy, they will provide a good time, there sleepers are new last year. Good luck and hang on. Bill

You can also try Arnesen's. In the past, they have been very generous when bringing kids along. They may be booked up already, but I would definitely recommend calling them to find out. 1-800-535-7585

Piker, I can second the Adrian's comments, we have stayed at Sportsman's, Schusters, Riverbend, Riverview and Wigwam all do a good job, we ended up repeating at Adrian's the past 5 years good people, and the 50 plus years on the lake is hard to beat, as well we like to drive out ourselves, no time table, leave when you want and return when you want, service, bait, staff 2nd to none, and a great value.....

I also have fished multiple resorts(zipple, morris pt, adrians) on LOW. Every year we store our house and fish from Adrians, great people and great fishing. They have everything right there, makes for a great weekend not having to run into town or down the road for anything.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      Thanks a lot phishnerd! I will give it a shot and let ya know how I do! I am hoping to get out tomorrow if not hopefully this weekend! Thanks for the tips on baiting also! What would you use for live baits?
