Were to Stay?

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for a hotel or resort to stay at during Dec.27-Dec.29 but realize most places are booked already. So I am wondering if anybody knows of a place with reservations still open.

You might want to give a call to the Lake Road Lodge Motel. they are on 172 just before Wheelers Point. They might be able to help you out. Close to the lake. Otherwise my only suggestion is to click on the resort locator above, go to Lake of Woods on the right side menu and make some calls. Hope you find a spot. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I made resevations at the Lakeroad Lodge 2 weeks ago for the 28th and 29th and they were filled up after my reservations though. I would call around to all the resorts to see what you can find. There are alot more reasonable, more professional, and more curtious places to stay in the area. We were desperate.

Minaki,

You could call The Royal Dutchman. I've never stayed there but I've talked to them about accomodations a couple times and they have always been very professional to deal with. A lot of other folks on the forum also have spoken well of them. If you are extremely desperate, the Baudette Motel might have room although there are better people to deal with up there. Have you called American Inn and Walleye Inn. It might be a little late but you never know. I often stay at a motel in town and then just rent a day house with transportation on and off the ice from one of the resorts.We are staying at Walleye Inn the 26th through 29th and fishing with Ballards the 27th and 28th. Good luck.

Eastwind - Are we still on for a cold one on the 28th? We're bringing all of our gear to do some sunrise/sunset action too, so we'll be staying at Morris Point and using their houses during the day and "pork and bean" fishing the low light hours. cool.gif

Gonzo,

Oh yeah. I plan to call you on your cell whem we get off of the ice on the 28th. I may touch base with you sooner to see how the fishing is where you guys are. I will have my phone with me on the ice. Will you have yours? As far as bringing portables along for night fishing, won't you catch just as much if you just stay in the lodge and concentrate on heavy consumption?? tongue.gif

I'll have my cell. BTW We'll have radios too, and may be able to connect that way if your group has some.

We're not really doing night fishing, more like twilight AM and PM. Of course, the "limit" we catch in the lodge after dark will determine how early AM is! crazy.gif

That "limit" Like so many others in my time, has also been lowered, and I can't blame the DNR for that!

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
