Suggestions for weekend getaway

Recommended Posts

Myself and four college buddies are planning our annual (well this is only the second year, but we plan on making it annual), ice fishing trip. Last year we planned a last minute thing on Mille Lacs in a sleeper, and had a great time (even though we only caught a few small perch). I'm looking for any suggestions people have for a good resort/lake experience, we are open to lodges or sleeper ice houses and don't have any real preference on species although it would be nice to catch a few more than last year. We are also looking to try something different than Mille Lacs, we are hoping to try a different lake per year to get some variety (at least for the first few years). Probably looking to take the trip in Late January / Early February. We would probably be doing a long weekend (3 days), so something less than 5-6 hours drive would be best. Thanks in advance for the advice.

Check out Wigwam Resort on Lake of the Woods. LOW is one of the best hard water fisheries in the country. Wigwam will take care of you. They will put you on fish. They also have a great restaurant and a HUGE bar.

Lake of the woods / red lake combo. Drive up to red, stay night 1 in a sleeper with jonny & Kelly p, then head to any number of resorts on low for the balance.

Exactly, Jonny and Kelly P will hook you up and their shacks are nice. LOTW's is awesome. Good luck.

I wholeheartedly agree with Wigwam for LOTW, I have stayed there multiple times over the years including last year. I also would highly endorse Highbanks resort on Winnie and stay in one of their houses. I did four trips to Winnie last year and the folks at Highbanks treated me right.

LOW is on top of my list because of the daytime fishing activity. You can catch fish at other places during the day, but LOW has one of the best daytime bites in the world. Upper Red is another great destination as is Winnie. The idea of a combo between a couple of places sounds like a good idea too....
