Well it has been quiet a few years since I have stayed there. Nice quaint cabins kept clean. Lodge is nice and Kris is a great host (I believe she still runs it, hear she may have moved south). I was usually up in spring for the river so business was slow and not alot of people. The only complaint that I have had is, I was not happy with the Ice house rental we had about 5 years ago, But it's been a long time and We where the first people in thier house that winter so thing are probably better now. My in-laws rented a charter thru them 3 summers ago and had a blast the captian was great they said.

I would not hesitate going back in future.

Awesome place. I found them through Fishing Minnesota and booked three days with them in January and caught real nice fish. This was the first time I have ever been to lake of the woods and I am addicted. I am scheduled to go next Sunday through Tuesday by my self and cant explain how excited I am. There cabins are first rate and the people including the guides are fantastic. I would recommend fishing during the day and staying at the resort at night. LOW is not a very good night bite lake.

Hey Ralph aren't you staying at Riverbend not Riverview? They aren't the same just letting you know.

euorlarva: I too was sure that you were at Riverbend, not Riverview in January. I do know that you're headed to Riverbend next week. Bill

We stayed at riverview for 4 days 3 nights in december and had a great time. Great cabins, awesome bar with great food and stiff drinks, and a handfull of guides that had us on top of fish the entire time we were there. Between 8 guys we caught around 70-80 fish in one weekend including a 25", 27" walter, and a ton of good eaters. I would definetly recommend riverview resort for a good time.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
