LOW Ice fishing on our own

4 posts in this topic

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.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
