NW Angle/Oak Island Lake of the Woods, MN
Fishing, Trail & Ice Report 12-28-2016
Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge
The season has begun!
We started our season at Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge Dec 26. The ice is in good shape, the plowed road to the island is open and the fish are biting! Check out the pictures from yesterday.
Jigging using gold and pink 3/8 oz. jigs and buck shots tipped with a minnow has been hot. Anglers are finding good luck in 16’-22’. A mix of walleye and saugers are biting.
Currently we have 12-16 inches of ice in the areas we fish and travel.
Plowed road to the resort from the Northwest Angle
The road is plowed out from Young’s Bay at the Northwest Angle out to the lodge. We have signs posted. Come on out!
The Rainy River and lake trails are marked with black stakes from Baudette to Oak Island and Baudette to Warroad. Crews found 11-17 inches of ice on the trail. Packing of the trails is being done now and grooming will start as soon as we get 21-24 inches of ice. A nice 5-7 inches of snow is on the trail with some drifts. Conditions may vary off the trail. For your best ride stay on the trail and watch for caution areas.
Join us for our New Year’s Eve Party!
We will be featuring prime rib and shrimp scampi specials, party favors and a mascato toast at midnight!
