Are you rrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeady for some ice fishing?
The ice is shaping up good! We have had some nice cool temps over the past few days. We will start ice fishing on Monday, Dec 12 for the season!!!! We currently have 10 inches of ice on Four Mile Bay and 7-9 inches on the lake in the areas we travel and fish. We anticipate by Monday that we will have 12 inches to start safely. We will start pulling houses out tomorrow and be ready for you on Monday, so make your reservations to arrive Sunday night to get in on some incredible early season fishing! The guides have been out doing some pre-fishing and the results are excellent! We have good clear water and ice. They are seeing lots of nice walleyes and saugers. It is going to be a fun year! Keep in mind early season is usually excellent for trophy walleyes too!
At this time we have very little snow on the land or lake trails. The land trails are closed. Many resorts are working on getting their lake trails staked over the weekend. The snowmobile club will start staking their trail to Warroad and across to Oak Island in a week or so based on the ice conditions.
If you plan to venture out this weekend, please use caution especially in the areas where the ice broke up early in the week. Light jeeps and ATV’s only are advised. As always remember the entire lake is not treated equally when it freezes so make sure you stay on the trails and know where you are going. Keep it safe!
