The guides on the island report a nice mix of walleyes and saugers and good catch rates lately but it has been a light bite so jigging with plain hooks with a split shot or gold jigs tipped with a chub or shiner minnow have been working the best. Work the jig and watch the electronics. Anglers are seeing fish in all depths. We are currently seeing the best results along some structure in depths between 20’-28’ of water.
Hot lunch delivered to you
We may be on an island, but we don’t believe in “roughing it”. Ask how you can enjoy a hot lunch prepared and brought right to your fish house midday when you join us for your next fishing trip.
The fun hasn’t stopped, it has really just begun! March is usually one of the best times for ice fishing! Warm weather, lots of sun and walleyes! Come on up! We are open until mid/late-March.
Ice Condition Report
We currently have 24-26 inches of ice, plenty of ice for lots of winter fun.
We don’t have a lot of snow in the area but groomers are out and the trail from Baudette to Oak is good. For more information on the NW Angle & Islands area click here. For the Baudette area click here. The NW Angle club will be hosting their annual Snowmobile Rally March 4 in the NW Angle area. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
The ice road is open. Take the 9 mile drive out from Young’s Bay to the lodge. Signs are posted.
