Set the hook!
24-28 feet of water jigging with a gold jig, small silver spoon or buckshot tipped with a minnow has been successful this week. Mostly walleyes, several saugers, few perch and northern pike have been caught. Mix of dead sticking and jigging is the best approach. Vexilars really help the catch rate as some schools of fish are being found suspended 2-8 feet off bottom. Get into the action. We have fish house rentals available until late March. Give us a call 800-772-8411 or reserve online.
Currently we have 20 inches of ice in the areas we fish and travel. The lake got pretty sloppy last week after the 4-5 day stretch of warm temps but that has hardened up now and we did not lose any ice. Forecast looks cool and we are back to ice making weather.
Nice base of snow on the trails right now, groomers are out, come take a ride. The area lake and land trails are being groomed weekly. For more information on the NW Angle & Islands area click here. For the Baudette area click here
The ice road is open. Take the 9 mile drive out from Young’s Bay to the lodge. Signs are posted.
