Glow jigs, plain hooks tipped with a minnow and Vexilars, Marcums or whatever fish flasher flavor you like are the hot tips this week.  Anglers using these tactics in 23’-33’ of water along with a mix of jigging and dead sticking realized an increase in their catch rate. Many reports of nice walleyes and saugers being found all over the water column  4-6 inches, 2’, sometimes 8’-10’ off bottom.  If you don’t have a flasher and would like to give one a try, we have a few for rent. They do go fast so it is a good idea to call ahead to reserve.  Travel time to the fish houses is about 30 minutes. The guides are moving houses daily to stay on the best bite.  What are you waiting for? Come get your fish on.  Ice fishing trips available through late March!
