Meline's Lodge & Guide Service
Greetings from Meline's Lodge!
Lake Trout
Lake Trout
Hello everyone.  The big news on Lake of the Woods is the incredibly warm weather.  We are experiencing a very early spring; the ice should be out by the first week of April.  Unfortunately, the warm weather caused unsafe ice conditions during the last part of March.  The ice conditions for January, February and early March were ideal and the ice fishing was excellent.  We had five lake trout over 20 lbs. in January.

We do our best to improve the delivery of our product each year, but we also realize that there is always a way to improve on things.  We appreciate all your comments and suggestions, please drop us an email at  There is no better compliment than a referral.  Please pass along our email blasts to anyone you think may be interested in a Lake of the Woods vacation or adventure at Melines Lodge.

2011 was also a pretty successful year for our hunting guests.  We also anticipate a good response to our article in the Texas Sporting Journal, so please make your 2012 hunting reservations as soon as possible to ensure we have your favorite cabin or guide.  We are off to a great start in terms of sales for 2012, please think about reserving your dates for 2012 as soon as possible.

Cathy and I are looking forward to the upcoming season and getting the boats back in the water.  We are also looking forward to seeing all our guests again and having a great season in 2012.  See you all real soon!
