A little more ice, a little more snow, and good fishing going on
Check out the pictures of the week! Thank you to everyone who submitted their photos.
Jigging and dead sticking 3/8 – 1/4 ounce gold, wonderbread, glow and pink spoons and jigs tipped with a minnow have been the taster’s choice this week. Electronics help too.
27-32 feet has been the best depth. It is mid-season so the ride out to the best action is a little longer than the early season, about 30-60 minutes but worth it. We always like to keep the ride as short as possible but we want to give you the best experience too. We gained a few more inches of ice and snow. Currently we have over 2’ of ice (25”-30”) and 10-12 inches of snow where we fish and travel. More ice is always welcome this time of year to keep us fishing through late March.
Trails are marked and grooming is in progress. For more information about the trails and the latest on the land trails, check out Lake of the Wood’s Drifters and the Northwest Angle Edge Riders Face book pages.

Fire Tigers still hot and Glow
Fire tiger rattle spoons and white glow spoons as well as jigs have been hot this week tipped with a minnow in the mud 28’-31’. The catch of the week has been mostly walleyes and saugers but a few big pikes too. We have 22 inches of ice and about 12 inches of snow in the areas we fish and travel. Try a mix of jigging and dead sticking for the best results. Electronics help too! To reserve a vexilar rental, always best to call ahead.
