Kind of a kick to the jugular with that beautiful 8-10" of white stuff however, did quite well out of long point bringing home 20 over 14" between saugers and eyes nothing big though. Heard good luck coming three miles out of morris point. Good luck with the lodging try the walleye inn.

thanks jigemup.
yes, we have have shacks lanterns heaters poles and everything, but we are used to small lakes and a few dont ice fish much at all. so we need some general help as far as depths, lures, baits, presentations, structure, times, etc.
thanks

Gophish: Click on the Lake of the Woods site. Some good info there on lures and depths, as well as area's to fish that were mentioned here. gold is good, Buckshot Rattle, Kazmaster, pink/white Angel Eye jr. plain gold hooks, red hooks. Don't be afraid to switch things up.

Lodging could be tough. Baudette Motel is decent, but you may want to jump to the Resort Locator and start calling. They do have cancellations and you might luck out there. We stay at Riverbend which is just before Wheelers Point. Decent luck two weeks ago, and I headed back on 1/19. Have a great time you should have a ball. Good luck, and hang on. Bill

Gophish,
We went out of Zipple Bay last Friday and Saturday. All the hotels were filled up in Baudette and Warroad so we ended up staying just across the border at the Road Runner Motel. I think it was only $50 for a room. Make sure you guys have a vehicle that can get through some snow if it gets windy out there. Good luck and have some fun!

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
