Fishing remains good!
A mix of jigging and dead heading right off bottom with a 3/8 oz red jig with a white eye tipped with a minnow has been hot in 24’-28’ of water! Boy oh boy! The walleyes, saugers and occasional perch have been hungry. The best time of day has been all over the map. Some houses do the best for the first two hours in the morning and late afternoon and others do best midday.
We have 30”-32” of ice in the areas we fish and travel. Looking good to bring us right through late March!
The lake trail from the south shore of Lake of the Woods to Oak Island was moved yesterday due to some pressure ridge issues. The new trail is in much better shape and will is being groomed today. The Baudette to Warroad trail will be re-routed later this week or next for the same reasons. Like always be sure to use caution especially when temperature changes fluctuate rapidly. Snow conditions are ok at this time. We could use more, however riders are finding some decent conditions on some of the trails. For more information on the land trails, click here for the Drifters Snowmobile Club Facebook page for the Baudette area and here for the Northwest Angle Edge Riders Club for the northwest angle and oak island area.
