Lake of the Woods South Shore Ice Fishing, Snow & Trail Report|
Ice Fishing Continues
We had a winter warm up the past few weeks, however it looks like after today we are going to cool down with highs in the 30s and lows in the twenties and even teens at night. As long as we keep freezing at night we will continue to ice fish and actually make ice since the snow cover has pretty much disappeared. Right now we have moved all of our houses west and are leaving out of the Graceton Beach & Morris Point areas. We have 30 inches of ice in that area. Please keep in mind there is no travel advised on the Rainy River and only four wheelers on the Four Mile Bay.
Fishing is goooooooooood!
Yes it is March Madness! The time when every year the fishing really starts to snap. We saw a nice 10lb walleye caught Saturday, lots of nice sized walleyes and plenty of action from our small sauger classes that we have seen all winter. This is a favorite time of year, locals call it the best time of year. We have moved in shallower to 24-28 of water and have chased those hungry walleyes down. The best tackle has been a plain hook, gold jig and stop sign tipped with a minnow. Come on up
walleye season closes April 14.
The best of both worlds
Yes this is the time of year when you start to see fish houses and boats in the same parking lot ready to go out fishing. Ice Fishing continues on the lake and 25 miles away the river has opened too. Right now Vidas landing east of Clementson (6 miles east of Baudette) is open. Its a fishing frenzy in the area right now. Reports are that the ice fishing has been much better than the river fishing however it wont be long and those giant walleyes, monster sturgeon and frisky northerns will be running the river. Get your rooms booked now, you dont want to be left out.
We have lost most of our snow and the trails are now closed.
