Best lotw Resort


Recommended Posts

Whats the best resort in Lake of the woods for ice fishing? We always go to Arneson's and always have a great time just looking for something closer to the river. Thanks

I can't vouch for anyone on the river, the only one on the river I ever stayed at was WigWam and I can't say it was a good experience.

All depends on what is most important to you.  Some are more expensive but offer better service, nicer accommodations etc.  Are you a do-it-yourselfer or do you want to be taken care of?  Do you want to drive out or be taken out to your house in a track rig?  Are you cooking in the cabin or eating in the restaurant?  These all tie into each resort.  What I consider the best is not someone elses opinion but it doesn't mean either of us are wrong.  There are definitely some I wouldn't go to but I am not going to bash on here.

Wheeler's Point, Ballard's and Sportsman's are my top choices. All three have treated our group very well over the years. We stayed with Wheeler's Point this past weekend and the fishing and service was awesome. The Saturday night meal we ate in their restaurant was very good and we managed to have some fun in their bar too. ;-)  They also have a great fishing cleaning shack.

 

I have some negative opinions on some other resorts but they won't get mentioned on the internet.

When fishing is good, you will get good reports about most resorts.  It is when fishing is poor and the guides have to work harder that separates the good from the bad.

Morris Point does a very good job, and it's right on the lake, no crossing 4 Mile Bay. Cyrus does a nice job over that way too.

Wheelers. Had a sleeper there a couple weeks ago. Their shack had a great floor plan and service was excellent. 2 guys. 2 days of fishing. Took home 11 fish.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
