We stay at the FM Inn. Oops I mean Paddle Inn. Cheap and ok rooms. Nothing fancy just a clean warm room. If your looking at something more up scale try the Grand Ely Lodge.

I would recommend the Grand Ely Lodge especially if you have kids because they have a swimming pool and the rooms are very nice. You can take off on the snowmobile trail right from your door plus you are right on Shagawa Lake. They also have a nice restaraunt right there!

Hope this helps,

Justin

I've stayed at both the Grand Ely Lodge and Paddle Inn. The Lodge is great with everything you need right there, including Ice Fishing if you want to walk/drive(?) out or rent a shack. You'll pay about 40% more for a room there vs anywhere else, but if that doesn't matter, thats where I would go.

The Paddle Inn is clean, comfortable and will work well if you just need a place to crash & shower while spending most of the day elsewhere. For us it has worked well when up visiting the family for the Holidays.

This year we are going to give the Adventure Inn a whirl over Christmas. Priced between the Paddle and the Lodge, (closer to the Paddle) we'll see how it is.

Haven't been home for quite a few Christmas' now. Really looking forward to it. Hopefully the eyes are biting on down on Sandy Point or Stinky Ditch.

Grand Ely Lodge is tops in my book for all of the reasons above.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
