Tumbleweed,

I grew up going to a place called Beacon Shores Resort on Lower Whitefish. It is a wonderful place to stay. Plenty of different size cabins to accomodate the size of your family. I have not been back as a guest for a number of years but have stopped in to visit a few times in the last year. Everything was still as I remembered. I have been trying to convince the wife that we need to vacation there as I had so much fun in years past.

I met a guy on Crosslake while up there ice fishing. He has two cabins on the lake that he rents privately. I can get you the phone number if you would like. I think the big cabin (lake home, not cabin) is about $1500 per week, and the small one (more rustic) is $500 per week. Has dock on nice part of the lake. Nice swimming and fishing right there. The big cabin VERY NICE. Not sure of the availablity, but thought I would mention it. I don't know him, just got the info for family members, as I have cabin up there, but not on chain. Let me know and if interested your email, and I can send you the number.

Beacon Shores is one, another is Driftwood Resort on the NW side of the big lake.

Also, try for something on Hay Lake, it might be cheaper.

If you don't mind camping,(tent or trailer) try the Crosslake Corp. of Eng. camp ground in Crosslake...nice camp ground with elctric showers, everything.

I think there is another resort on Big Trout lake in Manhatten Beach.

Good Luck!

The Crosslake Campground is A1 in my book. Stayed there tons. Only problem is getting a reservation. Most sites will be booked by now for that date. But definitely worth a try if camping is an option.

I have stayed at Tip Top resort on Clamshell lake for years and I highly recommend that resort. They also have a nice sand beach if you are bringing the kids. I have always thought there rates were very reasonable also.

I was at the Cross campground last year, June.

Thought that I heard some talk about shutting it down, along with some other corp. campgrounds due to funding.

Has anyone heard any word on if that is true?

Believe they even had something posted at the gate.?

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
