Check out these pics of some of the anglers who enjoyed some good fishing so far. Pink, gold and glow in the dark jigs and spoons tipped with a minnow have been hot tickets. The water clarity is good and the walleyes are hungry. A great bite in shallow 12’-18’right now. The minnow man is happy, the minnows are going quickly! Always a sign of good fishing when you stop by a fish house and the say, the fishing is great, we need more minnows! We still have openings before Christmas, come wet a line. The sleeper fish houses are on the move. Their first day is Thursday. Our Sportsman’s Oak Island lodge will be opening in a week or so.
Current ice conditions in the areas we fish and travel are 9-11 inches on the Four Mile Bay and 11-13 inches on the lake. We have gained a few inches the past few days. Weather forecast looks great. It looks like it is shaping up for a normal northern Minnesota winter. Please keep in mind our ice report is only for the areas we fish and travel. Ice conditions vary, if you venture out on your own, be sure to check with local resorts and bait shops for current conditions. For public ice roads conditions, two roads nearby us we suggest are Adrian’s Resort or Morris Point Resort. Contact them for the latest conditions.
We have anywhere from an inch of snow to 2’ drifts on the lake. The area snowmobile clubs are busy grooming trails on land and lake trail marking and grooming will begin soon. For more information about the trails click here or contact: Lake of the Woods Drifters and the Northwest Angle Edge Riders.
