Zipple Bay, Morris Point, Adrians, Wheelers, Sportsmans, Riverbend, Borderview, Ken-Mar-Kee, and many others all offer fishing packages. Their are also several hotels/motels located near the lake, I guess it all depends on what your guys preferences are. I usually stay in my perm, but lots of people stay in the motels and fish portables in the afternoons and morns. As for what resort is best, I'd have to say all of them are good places and will make a great effort to ensure you have a good time/catch fish. Me personally I'd recommend the Wig-Wam or Adrians.

We've been using Lyon Sleepers for the last several years and have consistently done well. The houses are decent, moved to a clean spot after each group, crew is friendly, knowledgable and helpful. This year we had 75+ Walleye/Sauger plus a 36" Pike and a few perch for the weekend. Combine the name and add a dot com to get the web site.

I've been going to Lyons Sleepers for years and these guys are great. I would go with them.

I would say Zippel is the best on all fronts. (Roads, cabins, food, fish houses and yes fish) A great place to start your fishing experience on the ice on the big lake. Hope you have a great time, and yes Feb is one of the best times in the winter.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
