Caught minutes ago! Sarah Turner lands the biggest walleye of her life! 27 inch walleye caught and released.
Fishing has been like the weather this week. Up and down! Sometimes a good morning bite, sometimes the afternoon is favorable. The best approach has been using electronics, Fish Finders, Marcum, Vexilar, whatever your favorite flavor is. 26’-32’ of water using ¼-3/8 oz. jigs tipped with a minnow head or full minnow. Try a little of both and see what works for you. Glow in the dark and gold have been hot colors. Macho Minnows #32 and Stop Signs have been good too. It is a light bite so you really have to get the feel for it and the optimum time to set the hook. Walleyes, Saugers and tulibees are coming through the holes this week.
We are getting some wind today which will be hard on the trails. The groomers are grooming as much as funding allows and resorts are helping out as well to keep it in the best shape possible. It takes on a lot of traffic these days.
Currently we have 46 inches of ice and building daily! WOW! The good news is since we are a US/Canada border lake we can have our permanent houses out until March 31 unlike many other lakes in Minnesota. Lots of ice fishing is still to be had! We will have rentals available until the end it looks like at this point!
