Were to Stay?

Recommended Posts

Minaki Lord

I am looking for a hotel or resort to stay at during Dec.27-Dec.29 but realize most places are booked already. So I am wondering if anybody knows of a place with reservations still open.

You might want to give a call to the Lake Road Lodge Motel. they are on 172 just before Wheelers Point. They might be able to help you out. Close to the lake. Otherwise my only suggestion is to click on the resort locator above, go to Lake of Woods on the right side menu and make some calls. Hope you find a spot. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I made resevations at the Lakeroad Lodge 2 weeks ago for the 28th and 29th and they were filled up after my reservations though. I would call around to all the resorts to see what you can find. There are alot more reasonable, more professional, and more curtious places to stay in the area. We were desperate.

Minaki,

You could call The Royal Dutchman. I've never stayed there but I've talked to them about accomodations a couple times and they have always been very professional to deal with. A lot of other folks on the forum also have spoken well of them. If you are extremely desperate, the Baudette Motel might have room although there are better people to deal with up there. Have you called American Inn and Walleye Inn. It might be a little late but you never know. I often stay at a motel in town and then just rent a day house with transportation on and off the ice from one of the resorts.We are staying at Walleye Inn the 26th through 29th and fishing with Ballards the 27th and 28th. Good luck.

Eastwind - Are we still on for a cold one on the 28th? We're bringing all of our gear to do some sunrise/sunset action too, so we'll be staying at Morris Point and using their houses during the day and "pork and bean" fishing the low light hours. cool.gif

Gonzo,

Oh yeah. I plan to call you on your cell whem we get off of the ice on the 28th. I may touch base with you sooner to see how the fishing is where you guys are. I will have my phone with me on the ice. Will you have yours? As far as bringing portables along for night fishing, won't you catch just as much if you just stay in the lodge and concentrate on heavy consumption?? tongue.gif

I'll have my cell. BTW We'll have radios too, and may be able to connect that way if your group has some.

We're not really doing night fishing, more like twilight AM and PM. Of course, the "limit" we catch in the lodge after dark will determine how early AM is! crazy.gif

That "limit" Like so many others in my time, has also been lowered, and I can't blame the DNR for that!

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.
