Fishing has been much like a yoyo this week, up and down.  Flurry of activity…..quiet……few bites…..quiet…quiet…..a nice one……quiet…flurry…..nibbles….nice one…. So the tip of the week, is…..if you aren’t getting a bite, change up your approach or just sit back and enjoy good friends and family for a bit because just about the time you think today isn’t your day, you might just reel in a beautiful walleye.  A mix of jigging and dead heading right off bottom with a 1/8-3/8 oz. bright fluorescent jig tipped with a minnow or minnow head has been a good choice in 24’-29’ of water.

Ice Conditions
We have 27”-32” of ice in the areas we fish and travel. Looking good to bring us right through late March! We have some openings Feb 13-17 and March 9-late March as I write this. Come see us!

Trail Report
We have about 8-12 inches of snow in our area. Less to the south. We could use another shot or two. For more information about the trails click on these links:
