Ice Conditions
We had a great freeze up this year. Cold temperatures have now set in for the past 14 days prior to any measurable amounts of snow. This starts us out with a good safe base of ice for the winter season. The Four Mile Bay now has 10-12 inches of ice while the Lake is averaging 12 -14 inches. The temperatures continue to dip below zero at night with low teens during the day so we are experiencing ideal conditions for fishing and making more ice. Our experienced guides check the ice and trails daily. They will transport you to your warm and ready fish house with all of your holes drilled, bait, tackle & poles ready for an exciting day of fishing! We even deliver a hot lunch to your door & clean your fish at the end of the day. Lunch is optional, but unlike other places - everything is included in our package price. You are on vacation, relax! Just bring good friends and a camera and enjoy some winter fun!

Fishing Report
Hello Fish Fans! Ice fishing is in full swing on the south end of Lake of the Woods!
Our ice fishing season officially kicked off on Monday, December 8.

Consensus has been that the morning bite has been decent with a super evening bite that starts about 3 p.m. Roughly 70% of the fish caught have been pulled in between 2 p.m. and 5:30p.m.
Everyone that went out fishing yesterday came in with their LIMIT! A great start to the 2008-2009 winter season!

Hot jig colors have been gold, pink and chartreuse and the fish seem to be hanging tight to within 2 – 8 inches of the bottom of the lake. Average size of fish being kept is ranging right around 16 – 18 inches – so definitely a nice size to fill that bucket! The Johnson party of Mitchell, SD reported catching a beautiful 29 inch walleye that they admired and released.

Snow Report
The local snowmobile club will be marking the Lake trail from Wheeler’s Point to Oak Island this weekend. The land trails are open, however grooming has not started. The average snow depth is now at 5-6 inches and we are expected to get another 2-3 inches today. It won’t be long and snowmobiling will be in full swing!
