LOW Ice fishing on our own

Recommended Posts

sparetime

In years past we have always stayed at one of the Lake of the Woods resorts and fished out of their houses. This year we'd like to fish on our own.

The problem I'm having is that most resorts require you to fish with them on the weekends if you want to stay there. Any suggestions on a place to stay. We'd be fishing along the south shore.

You might try Lake Road Lodge. It's a motel and they do have house rentals but don't think they exclude independents. Good luck.

I always stay at the Lake Road Lodge motel. They are located out on Wheelers Point, have fish cleaning facilities, and the prices are very reasonable.

Lake Road Lodge is a good suggestion, I stay with them each time I go up in the winter and other seasons as well. Brian and Penny are new owners as of last year. Really great people and will treat you right. Brian helped me get my house off the ice last March (8 miles out) after the weather turned warm and things were pretty ugly. This spring I stayed with them a few times and Brian was really helpfull with fishing updates. These are the kind of folks I love to support.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
