We kicked off our fishing season this weekend and our guests caught some nice fish. A mix of walleyes, saugers, and a few pikes was the first fish up the hole to start the season.
We currently have 10-12 inches of ice in the areas we fish and travel and just a skiff of snow on the lake. Jigging raps were one of the best techniques followed by gold jigs and a plain red hook on a dead stick tipped with a minnow in 18-21 feet of water. Grab your fishing buddy and come have some fun. We do it all. Our day houses include the fish house, transportation to and from the fish house, bait, rods/reels/jig sticks, and jigs to use and we will clean your fish too. Meal plans are available too.

Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge & Eagle Ridge
Ice is coming along in the islands. 6-10 inches in the areas we are traveling now. The ice crew plans on doing ice checks later this week between the south shore and the island. If all goes well, the trail could be marked by this weekend for snowmobiles. We open up the lodge on December 26 for the season.
Thanks for the update, are they going to do the ice road to the Northwest Angle to avoid the Border crossing again??
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. Thanks for reaching out. We hope to see you this winter.
