Do you sell fishing licenses at the Wigwam?

Unfortunately we do not, but don’t worry. You can get your fishing licenses at  Border Bait or Log Cabin Bait, which are both just a mile or so from the Wigwam Resort. You will also find several gas station/convenience stores and bait shops in Baudette that all sell licenses.

When do you start offering reef ice fishing?

We typically start reef ice fishing around the first week of February and it will run through the end of March or early April—all dependent upon ice conditions. There is an extra charge associated with reef ice fishing and also limited space, so be sure to request it when you make your initial reservation!

Are lunches provided on the launches and in the ice houses?

If you would like bag lunches, they can be pre-ordered prior to arrival or they can be ordered at the front desk the evening before you fish. If you have chosen to go with the meal plan added to your fishing/lodging package, the lunch is included.

What is the slot size for walleyes on Lake of the Woods?

Walleyes caught on Lake of the Woods that are 19 1/2″ to 28″ must be released back into Lake of the Woods.

How many walleyes can I have in my possession?

The answer depends on the season. During the summer you can have a total of 6 fish in your possession, but only 4 can be walleyes. In the winter you can have a total of 8 fish in your possession, but only 4 can be walleyes.
