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 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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
