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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
