South Shore near Pine Island and Four Mile Bay

Cold temperatures...
We have had some cold days and nights the past few days and made some headway on our ice conditions I thought I would pass on.

The guys checked ice this morning and found 4-7 inches of ice on Four Mile Bay and 6-8 inches on the lake. There are some patchy spots with less off of the marked trail. Just a few more days of cooler temperatures will be perfect to firm things up. We can easily make 1 - 1 1/2 inches of ice in a 24 hour period if the weather stays cold. The good news is the forecast is looking to be in our favor! Based on today's information we feel we can officially publish our start date of the ice fishing season to be Tuesday, Dec 7.

Based on the current ice conditions and forecast we feel we will have 10-12 inches of safe ice in the area we fish and travel by Tuesday. For those of you who like to venture out on your own, keep in mind the whole lake is not treated equally in ice conditions so stay informed and stay on the marked trails. At this time, there is a trail going out from Adrian's landing at Wigwam right now across Four Mile Bay and four wheelers and snowmobiles have been venturing out, however we urge you to stay on the marked trail and to not venture off at this point, caution is advised. Just a few more days of cooler temperatures are going to make a huge difference. Morris Point is not marking a trail until after the weekend. The Rainy River is not safe at all at this point due to the water current.

As far as Sportsman's Oak Island and the Northwest Angle area of the lake they currently have 1-3 inches and we will report more information next week.

Let's keep it safe and have a fun ice fishing season! Give us a call with any questions or to book a winter trip 800-862-8602 or visit us online at www.sportsmanslodges.com
