I went up and fished out of Sportsman's Lodge in Baudette. we were up there from the 16th thru the 18th. We ended up bringing home 5 walleyes, 14 sauger, 1 saugeye, 2 white fish, 4 eel pout. it was slow fishing, but when they hit they hit! not so many tiny sauger, but the walleyes just didn't want to bite. we only got 5 total, the largest was 17 inches. plenty to come home and eat for the 3 of us.
one of the eel pout went 30 inches, and one of the white fish was 28 inches long, and had a pretty thick back, the resort people claim they haven't seen a whitefish that large in a decade, so that was fun... had a good wrestling match with it when it came through the ice.
plenty of solid ice, great resort/lodge to go out of. had fun even though the fish didn't cooperate fully with us.
