ICE!!!!
It's here, it's nice and think and the walleyes are just waiting to be hooked at Sportsman's Lodges.
We currently have 12+ inches on the lake right now in the areas that we travel and it was -31 below this morning! We are making more ice every minute!

Walleyes!
The fishing started out fair last week, but over the weekend it really picked up and limits of fish was not uncommon. The guides found the fish out deeper than in normal years at this time. Chubby Darters, stop signs and gold jigs have been the hot tackle lately tipped with a minnow. Joe Cooper from Baudette, MN caught a 11 lbs, 31 inches! Wow! It was released, and is waiting for you! Check out the picture here



A few tips from the guides, jigging helps, change up your tackle after awhile if you don't get any bites and the morning and late afternoon bites are the best. Vexilars are also a helpful thing to bring along or rent from the front desk. Also keep in mind last winter we had quite a few fish caught not just at bottom, but also suspended 1, 2, 3, and even 6 feet off bottom. The best technique to catch one of those is to leave your jig on the bottom, have a vexilar and watch it, when something comes up, reel up. The most popular seasons on Lake of the Woods is here!

Trail Report
The Lake of the Woods Drifters snowmobile club is planning on staking the trail from Wheeler's Point to Oak Island this Saturday. The land trails have 12-14 inches of snow but are just starting to be groomed. Hopefully by the weekend we can have our first nice grooming done. No word yet on when the Wheeler's Point to Warroad trail will be marked. I am sure it will be soon. Stay tuned.

It won't be long now!
The guides and staff are opening up camp this week. We have 8+ inches of ice around the area and making more ice by the minute. We plan to have food and drinks available by the weekend and a few fish houses. Give ChiChi a call to book some early season fishing. More information to come in a few days.
