Things to Do

There are many things to do in our resort community.
We have several things that happen thru the year

We have amazing ice fishing that starts when the lake freezes over.
We go from hard water fishing to open water fishing, where you can catch Walleye, Sauger, Sturgeon, Perch, and Northern and by chance, a smallmouth bass on either The Lake of the Woods or The Rainy River and soft water fishing starts depending on how fast the ice disappears.

Our spring season*** Consists of open water fishing on the Rainy River and the Lake of the Woods.  There is some big fish that are caught during this time of the year. There are certain DNR regulations you must follow on the Lake of the Woods compared to Rainy River make sure you know the DNR regulations.

Walleye Opener *** The walleyes have completed their spawn normally in the Rainy River and they start heading back into Lake of the Woods. The walleyes are in shallow water this time of year. The walleyes are usually stacked-up and waiting in the washout area out near Pine Island.

Summer Fishing*** The Walleyes move out into the lake during the summer months. The fish are located thru the lake at different depths and around the Islands at different times of the summer. The bite during the summer has different techniques you can use, jigging, down rigging, and trolling.

Fall Fishing***  Fall fishing can be a lot of fun,  “shiners” start their run into  Lake of the Woods and the walleyes normally follow. When temperatures start to drop in the lake and the Rainy River, walleyes tend to stack up in the shallow waters. During the fall you can fish on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River. Many people have caught big trophy fish.

Lake of the Woods is known for Gold, Pink, and Glow in the dark jigs.
