Winter Fishing


When Upper Red Lake starts to freeze over, that's when the fishing at Mort's really gets exciting! December through February it is great fishing for walleye, northern, and crappie.  From sleeper houses and day houses to easy lake access to on/off sale, we have a little something for everyone when you need to get away from the daily grind.


When you stay at Mort’s, you can rest assured that you have 24 hour assistance available if something goes wrong on the lake.  Mother Nature can throw some curveballs, and our staff will strive to be right there to help you out if needed.


Bring your snowmobiles too – you’ll never run out of places to travel! Mort’s has close access to hundreds of miles of the finest snowmobile trails in Minnesota!
