We have 8-14 inches of ice in the areas we fish and travel. The staff is gearing up and we will be open Dec 26th for the season! If you haven’t made plans to visit us this winter, give us a call 800-862-8602 or click here to email us.
We expect it to be pretty good! Usually early season is good and the bite on the south end has been great! Gold and pink jigs tipped with a minnow are always good bets to start out with and don’t forget or rent electronics. They seem to really help catch rates. We have a few available, always good to call ahead to reserve, they go fast. Let’s go fishing!
Snowmobile trail across the lake from Four Mile Bay to Oak Island has been marked however no grooming yet. There are a lot of chunks of ice this year sticking up so crews are busy working on smoothing that out and making sure the trail is safe. We also need a few more inches of ice and snow before it will be safe to groom. We have anywhere from a few inches of snow to 2-3’ drifts on the lake along with a few bare spots, land trails have 5-12 inches of snow. If you do venture out, be sure to stay on the trails as ice conditions vary. Land trails are in good shape and are being groomed.
