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.

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod

        Jim, If ya get out give Frank or me a call on the cellular device.  We can compare notes.  Not much looking forward to it.  Heard there was a winter kill on the pond this year   BC

      Hey guys,   Just an FYI.  It sounds like the shifting ice sheet did some extensive damage to docks and shoreline on the south facing shore of Birch Point?  Letters went out from the barge services notifying everyone.    Can anyone confirm?   I have not personally been up to see but depending on how bad it is we might not have a dock in time for opener.  If you have a south facing dock it might be worth noting.   Thanks! Jon
