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.

      Might have to invest in some. Thanks

      Chains are a game changer too and cheaper.  Not as effective as tracks but still huge.

      Would be nice, but $$$. Probably stick to my portable

      Thanks. Wonder if 4x6 would work better. I was thinking of 2x6 for skids. I got a side by side a couple years ago and got it stuck in some hard pack snow, I'm afraid to go on the lake now with too much snow and packed down snowmobile tracks. I have winches on the front and back, but too much work digging them out when you get stuck, especially after having the heart attack in Sept.

      4'w x 8'L x 6.5'h.  1/2" plywood floor and roof with 2x3 framing.  2x4 for skids (bottom smooth with 1/8" plywood).  1/8" plywood walls with 2x2 frame and 1.5" styrofoam insulation.  It weighs about 120-130 pounds.   First year I pulled it out about 4 miles and had to pack a trail back to easily pull it off the lake with my snowmobile (studded track) in the morning when the snow was hard at the end of the season.  If I got chains for the Polaris Ranger I am sure that would pull a lot better.

      Ice conditions at Moccasin point. Just a reminder to be very careful in and around channels. While I measured 4 1/2" around the corner from Moccasin point, if a guy went straight off the boat landing into the channel area he would very likely break though the thin ice due to currents.

      Nothing new for this year yet but am getting itchy to get out.  I need to get my 6 inch Nils auger bit tuned up.  I guess I do have a new 8.0 Ah battery for my drill this year to go with the two stock 5’s.   18 Ah oughtta get some ice shredded. 😁

      Found  a dandy 1956 in 308. The wife likes it, says she'd like one too. She would like one in a smaller calibre, 243, etc. I still have cash, also have a couple of Colt SA 22 handguns I could do some trading with. Thanks Jim

      Seems like, pretty much nothing significant has changed.  Except for braids, as they have achieved the next level with SK71 standard and with new weaving and other treatments a few years ago.   I use a bunch of variety.  The one with the least temperature change is......ASSO.  Then again they are dedicated ice fishing lines so they do come in small spools only.  Which is a total bummer if thinking about spooling for open water.  The strongest is still Stroft GTM, but it's a little more stiff in comparison to a lot of other softer lines.  These are specialty lines so you won't just run to the store and find them. Braids, the availability of 8 strands in smaller #test that are useful for ice fishing.  But wait, Sufix has just released this year 131 G-core braid.  That's 12 strands plus 1 core braid.  Now I wonder how much performance merits it will have.
