To our Guests:

Dale and I would like to send a HUGE THANK-YOU to each and everyone that came to join us this winter ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. We hope that we will see you again this upcoming winter Dec. 2015 – April 2016.

It is great to be able to fish, what we think, is a wonderful area of Lake of the Woods for fun winter fishing.
It was a fun filled winter. We are very thankful for all who come to join us. It is our goal to continue to provide you with a great fishing experience.

Please keep up with us through out the Spring, Summer, and Fall!

We have 3 Summer Projects on the ‘TO DO” LIST!

FIRST: We will be building another 10 x 18 Sleeper which will mean 4 ~ 10 x 18 Sleepers and 2 ~ 8 x 16 Sleepers 2015-2016 Ice Fishing Season.

SECOND: We will be building our final 3 Day houses for a total of 6 Day house’s. This will help in Dec and Mar/Apr for early and late ice conditions. We will be at our max on houses. 6 of each!

THIRD: Connie’s B12 will be restored. It is only a shell and tracks right now and hope to make it the twin to our current B12!!

So stay tuned and keep tabs on our Progress between now and Dec.

We have a couple more weeks packing up and moving to our Lake of the Woods land and then heading back to Burtrum to start wrenching and Summer Projects.

Thanks-you Again to all and if you couldn’t make it this winter come join us when you can the 2015/2016 Ice Fishing Season!!

Sunday March 15th ~ Sad to see you Go!!

So sad to see everyone go home.

We thank each and everyone of you for joining us this weekend.

Matt S., Don K., Amil T., Denise W., Tiffany Z., and Gary U.
Your fishing groups were so enjoyable. It was fun to visit and catch fish even if the bite was not all that great. We know there were several houses that had 20+ fish caught. Gary’s group went home with a nice bag of fish. Many of the Sleepers cooked what they kept. The Ladies went home with 19 fish and are plan to get together in the next couple weeks for a fish fry!!!

Thank-you again. We so appreciate you fishing with us!!!

Check – In Times !! We need your help !!

Regarding Check – In Times!!!  We need your help!!

I will do my best to ask this of our guests and not offend anyone.

At the time of making a reservation we ask what time will you be arriving for your Check-In. I do know that trip arrangements can change between reservation and the day you finally get to take off for your fishing trip.

We are just asking that if you find you will be arriving to us at a time different then what you set up as your Check-In time would you PLEASE call us to let us know that you are changing your Check – In time and what your NEW time of arrival will be whether earlier or later. Even if you decide to stop on the way. Please call us at 320-630-6734 or 320-630-7897.

Dale and I, too, will do everything in our power to be here at the Bunkhouse when you arrive. There is always those circumstances that come up both traveling and on the lake and I know we can work together and help each other out!!!

Please contact us if you have any questions at all.
Thank-you and we sure hope you understand our need for this request.

Moving Sleepers!

Moved 3 Sleepers yesterday! Finished up at 11:30 last night and went back out this morning at 6:00 a.m. and fined tuned the Sleepers. Ready for our Guests arriving this morning.

Day house fishing worked out pretty good in one of the new locations and not so good in the location further SE.
After our Guests arrive this morning Dale and I are back in the Day House for a couple hours and then moving 3 more Sleepers and maybe the other Day Houses.

Looking forward to our Guests arriving tomorrow for the Sleepers we move today!!! Happy Fishing on the beautiful Lake of the Woods!!
