Houses here there and everywhere. We are hot on the walleye trail!
We have houses in varying depths 22’-32’in locations outside of Pine Island and further north this year. Doing what we can to get you on the fish! Jigging with rattle spoons and tackle that has a flash and/or puts off a little noise are doing well as well as getting real simple and using a plain hook tipped with a minnow. Be sure to bring a vexilar or reserve one to rent, they really help catching success! A few suspended walleyes have been found as much as 15’ off bottom. Average walleye size has been varying 12”-18” and a few larger. Check out the pictures. Saugers have been ranging from 10”-14”. Sounds like the weather is going to warm up for the rest of the week. Highs in the 30 are by the weekend.

Snow & Trail Report
We could use some more snow for ideal conditions but the lake trails are not too bad. Lake trails (Baudette to Oak Island and Baudette to Warroad) are groomed weekly. Land trails are in ok condition. Some trails are beter than others. Click here for more information. Another foot of snow would be ideal!
