Going Deep


Fish are on the move.  Guides are busy moving and grooving to 25’-29’ of water. Gold and pink jigs and buck-shot rattling spoons tipped with a minnow have been good tackle along with a plain hook this week. A combo of dead sticking and jigging is the best approach. Electronics definitely help! Bring your own or call ahead to reserve. Mix of walleyes, saugers and an occasional pike or perch have been coming up the holes this week.

Ice Conditions
24-30 inches of ice in the areas we fish and travel. Walleyes season is open until April 14 on Lake of the Woods. Looking good for ice fishing right through late March. March trips are available!

Grooming away! Groomers caution riders to stay on the trails especially this year with how rough the lake froze; there are a lot of ice chunks sticking up off the trail.  Click below for the latest conditions and more information about the Lake of the Woods area trails.

Cool opener but this week is looking great!
It was a cool walleye opener but the weather is warming up!  Anglers are reeling in some nice walleyes along shallow shorelines in 6’-18’ of water. Hammered gold spinners and a 1-2 ounce sinker minnow or a gold 3/8 ounce jig tipped with a minnow is working well. The current water temperature is 50 degrees.

Spring Bass & Pike bite
Spring bass and pike bite has been real good Pitching dead ciscos with a bobber on a quick strike rig on bottom or just 6 inches off bottom is working well to lure in these monsters along shorelines in weedy bays.

Up at Oak Island we are finding ice ranging anywhere from 2”-8” and we are planning on checking the ice again in a few days.  If the thinner spots build enough ice, we should be ready for ice fishing on the 28th.   The forecast looks great with lows in the single digits to below zero.
