Today is the day!! Ice fishing has begun at Sportsman’s!
We have 8-12 inches of ice in the area we fish and travel, 5’-6’ of water clarity and while pre-fishing yesterday the guides found an active bite with a mix of walleye, saugers including this monster 52 inch surprise sturgeon caught by Guide Eric Best!!! You never know what you might catch on Lake of the Woods! We received a 3-4 inches of snow yesterday. That is about all we have total in the area right now.
