Winter Ice Fishing

 

Wigwam Resort winter ice fishing

As the temperature plummets, our season is just heating up!

Lake of the Woods is considered to be the world’s best hard-water fishery—and it’s easy to see why. At Wigwam Resort, we provide our guests with cozy cabins, comfortable rooms, warm bombardiers for transport, and heated ice shacks that are moved often to ensure they get the best fishing spots. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, however, ice fishing is not all we have to offer. Our snowmobile trails link up with others in all directions, including a groomed trail across the mighty Lake of the Woods. Nearby Zippel Bay State Park provides cross-country ski trails and snowshoeing as well, so head to this winter “hot spot” for a really cool vacation.

Whether you reserve an ice shack just for the day or combine it with a lodging package, Wigwam provides the transportation to and from the heated fish house, bait, and tackle plus we clean and package your fish. If you have your own poles and tackle, feel free to bring them.  If you don’t have your own poles and tackle, please let us know so we can make arrangements to make sure you have what you need. Don’t forget a small cooler for your beverages and snacks.

“Wigwam Resort is truly the premiere destination when heading to Lake of the Woods. Everything from the accommodations, food, entertainment, and staff were outstanding. The fishing in your area never ceases to amaze me. The quantity and size of the Walleyes are second to none. Our family was able to experience some of the greatest fishing ever!!”
