Fishing & Hunting

Reel in the big one on Lake Of The Woods

Fishing at Yellowbird

In order for us to maintain that we are a first class resort on Lake of the Woods, it is important to ensure that beautiful accommodations and exceptional service are available to our guests. It is also just as important to have the best equipment to guarantee a memorable vacation. We are proud to introduce our new fleet of Triumph Boats with Evinrude Motors. This year we will have a brand new fleet of 17.5' Triumph Boats along with a new fleet of 19.5' Triumph Boats. We want to make sure our guests have the best equipment to help them catch the fish they want.

Guests who select the Complete American Plan package are treated to new 19.5' Triumph Boats. Each boat comes with a new 135 h.p Evinrude E-TEC outboard motor, 9.9 h.p trolling motor, depth finder, two-way VHF marine band radio, navigation lights, all boat equipment (including Personal Floatation Devices), coolers and live wells. After a day of fishing, new 17.5' Triumph Boats are available to guests for evening use at no additional charge.

Everything we do is first class and our boats are no exception! |
Here at Totem Resorts we have two boat options for our guests to choose from. Our boats were specifically designed for our guests and feature everything you could ask for and more!  Made from indestructible roplene, these boats are built to last - no tin boats here!  Always come with one of our professional guides.

Our Guides are One of a Kind!

To ensure that your fishing or hunting trip will be a success, guides are available to help you on your excursion. Our Fishing Guides are experts on Lake of the Woods, especially since they are on it every day from the Spring break-up to the Winter freeze-up. Likewise, our Hunting Guides are seasoned professionals who make their concern for guest safety a priority.

Our Guides have worked years of apprenticeship and are proud of being professionals. As well as making sure that you "reel in the big ones", Fishing Guides are also happy to prepare a delicious and authentic shorelunch second to none for their guests.

Our Bear Hunting Guides specialize in pre-baiting and putting guests on an active bait. Our Duck Hunting Guides have a wealth of experience due to the abundance of wild rice bays in the area and the hundreds of ducks that inhabit them each fall.

Should you and your group want to try something different, a fly-out can be arranged to a remote lake at an approximate cost of $750.00 US per person, with no charge for your Guide's flight if you are on one of our complete packages at Yellowbird. Or, for $150.00 US per boat, you can take your cruiser on a boat lift through our local Native American village, and experience a portage to a secluded lake with 25 miles of untouched wilderness... or take a one mile nature walk to our exclusive Walleye and Northern portage lake, or for our Wiley Point guests, go to Shoal Lake for Trophy fishing.

If you have a favorite Guide you would like to request for a trip, let us know. Although we can not guarantee their availability, we'll do our best to try to set you and your party up with the guide of your choice.

Trophies, Mounts and Replicas

During your fishing adventure on the Lake of the Woods, there is a good chance you will catch the "big one". As proof of your superb angling abilities, you may decide to have your trophy fish mounted.

Another option, and one that we strongly encourage, is to take a picture of your catch and/or measure it's girth and length, then carefully release it back into the lake and have a life-like replica made.

Portage Lakes & Fly Outs

A short trip from the Lodge and a scenic portage brings you to Rat Trap Lake. After boating through the lily pads, experience great Walleye and Northern pike fishing. Or take the Dog Paw boat lift for Trout, Bass, Muskie, Crappie and Northern. Enjoy nature at it's finest.
