A good afternoon bite has been going on in a variety of depths between 18’-28’ of water. Anglers have been catching many good eating sized and small walleyes. Swedish pimples and gold jigs tipped with a minnow have worked well. Vexilars always seem to help angler’s success. Rent one from us or bring one along.

Ice Conditions
The ice got a little sloppy the past week but we have lost no ice. Today quite a bit of the slush has froze. We have 14”-15” of ice in the areas we travel and fish. Starting today we have been getting colder. Currently it is 14 degrees but with the wind chill factor we are sitting at -1. The forecast is calling for lows below zero in the week ahead. This forecast is great for our ice conditions!

Ice Road from Young’s Bay to Oak Island
The ice road is open and plowed. Come on out!

Lake trails are marked from Baudette to Oak Island and Baudette to Warroad. The trails are in poor condition. We have just a dusting of snow. If you decide to venture out, watch out for the pressure ridges. The fluctuation in temperatures makes them move. The ridge just south of Garden Island especially has been an issue. We are hoping January gives us cooler stable temperatures and some snow to shape up the trails.
