More signs of ice showing up. A skim here and there on the river and ice chunks floating on the big lake. Ice has started to form on small bays, shorelines, and around docks too. Calm winds and cold temps is what we are looking for to make some measurable ice.
No safe ice yet, but usually December 10-15 is normal to kick off our season at Sportsman’s Rainy River with our day houses. A week or so later in our sleepers and December 26 at our island locations. We start our season once we have 8-12 inches of safe ice in the areas we fish and travel. The walleyes bite tends to be very active in the early season with just a jig and a minnow.
We are looking forward to a fun year. Stay tuned for more updates and give us a call to get your reservations in. Ask about our midweek discounts!
Keep.the updates coming! Hope to.see you for new years!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Are the plans for an ice roto oak island this year
Not that we are aware of. Lake of the Woods Passenger Service via bombardier and Lake County Air will provide air transportation this winter without any border to cross and the snowmobile trails from Warroad and Baudette will be open to the Northwest Angle. The road to the Northwest Angle and ice road from Young’s Bay to the islands will also be available. Canada does still have some Covid requirements when crossing the border but it is an option.
