Ice fishing has really picked up the past week. We are seeing lots of nice 15”-16” walleyes along with a few saugers, nice jumbo perch and northern pike. Jigging with gold, pink or macho minnow #29 in 22’-29’ of water has been hot! A few anglers have also had success dead sticking so we recommend trying a little of each and don’t forget your vexilar or reserve one from us. They really help your success! Great fishing is only a few miles from the lodge. Choose our meal plan or order a lunch the night prior for a hot lunch delivered right to your house. It’s prime time ice fishing time! Give us a call to reserve your trip now through late March.
Ice Road from Young’s Bay to Oak Island
The ice road is in great shape and marked. Watch for our signs. Take the 9 mile venture out and come for a visit.
Snow & Trail Report
We currently have about 5-8 inches of snow in the area. The lake trail from Oak Island to Baudette will be groomed today or tomorrow. We are below average in snowfall this year so far but after last week’s 5 inch shot it is improving. Be sure to watch for bare spots from drifting.
We ice fish until late March!
