The guides at Oak Island report a steady bite of mostly walleyes, few saugers, perch and northern pike. Nice 14” walleyes, few large ones and plenty of small ones to keep you reeling arm in shape. A good indication the lake is healthy! A gold, glow in the dark or pink 3/8 or smaller jig or buck shot lure tipped with a minnow or minnow head is working the best in 20’26’ of water. Best technique is to dead stick with one rod and jig with the other. Really pounding the bottom 4-8 inches off bottom has been successful. Morning and evening is best but some houses have been reporting a steady bite all day too. Don’t let winter pass you by. Give us a call to get a winter trip in. We are open for ice fishing until late March 800-772-8411.
Currently we have 20 inches of ice in the areas we travel and fish.
We have a couple feet of snow on the trail and they are in great shape. Trails are marked and groomed. Click here for more information for the Northwest Angle & Oak Island area. Click here for the Baudette area.
The ice road is open. Take the 9 mile drive out from Young’s Bay to the lodge. Signs are posted.
