Nice Fish Coming In
Only a little over a couple months left of ice fishing season left. What?! Already?!? We sure have been having a lot of fun this winter. Guests have been reeling in nice walleye and saugers. Check out some of the pics from this week!
The best bite continues to be in 25-32 feet as well as some days a few feet shallower depending on the day in the mud flaps and off reefs. Anglers have been finding a bite on and off all day, but noting a morning and afternoon run. Jigging with a minnow or minnow head using green/white, pink/white or gold jigs, buckshot spoons, lindy glow spoons, plain red hooks, Northland spoons with glow sticks and macho minnows has worked well. Vexilars help catch rates. Bring one along or contact us to reserve a rental.
We have 24-26 inches of ice right now in the areas we fish and travel. We are making ice! Ice fishing season at Sportsman’s runs through March 31 and walleye season until April 14.
New snow! 5-8 inches of fresh snow now lies on a good base. Regular grooming is in progress, time to hit the trails! For more information about the trails and latest on the land trails, check out Lake of the Wood’s Drifters and the Northwest Angle Edge Riders Facebook pages.
We do not maintain a plowed road ourselves as we supply the transportation for all of our trips to our houses via a groomed trail. If you are interested in venturing out on your own, there are several roads in the area you can venture out on nearby us. Adrian’s Road out of Four Mile Bay and Morris Point’s road out of Morris point are a few to check out.

Two Personal Best Walleyes Caught by Guests Yesterday
A few guests all the way from Georgia reeled in their personal best walleyes yesterday a beautiful 28 ½” and 24”. All in all not too many changes in the bite from last week. Deeper the better, 25’-32’ in mud and sand has been good fishing. Walleyes, saugers and jumbo perch are biting. Jigging and dead sticking gold, red, glow spoons, jigs and plain hooks tipped with a minnow continue to work the best. Vexilars help! Rentals available but be sure to call ahead to reserve.
We currently have 15”-21” of ice in the areas we fish and travel. If you are venturing out on your own always be sure for your safety to stay on marked trails and roads. We have lots of areas with safe ice, but the entire lake never freezes equally and some spots are never fit for travel.
5-8 inches of new snow! Regular grooming is in progress. For more information about the trails and latest on the land trails, check out Lake of the Wood’s Drifters and the Northwest Angle Edge Riders Facebook pages.
