On the south end… Great reports continue to come in for walleyes and saugers. Many of the resorts have moved closer and are within 5 -6 miles of shore. Lots of snow on lake, best to stay on resort roads or trails. Morning / evening bite continues in 15-20′. Pike action has heated up with many fish over 40″ caught this week. Should only get better. Fish houses on ice through March 31, walleyes open through April 14, pike season open continuous. Thick ice, extensions needed. Resort houses available with good ice. Ice roads open.
On the Rainy River… Strong current in river this year and a lot of snow. Snowmobile trail on river is open and marked from Baudette (downstream from bridge) to lake. Stay on trail for safety.
Up at the NW Angle… Excellent reports continue from the Angle. Walleyes coming from 22-30′. Saugers and jumbo perch mixed in. Jig one line, second line dead stick with plain hook with live minnow. If snowmobiling, lots of slush off of the trail, stay on trails. A complete list of lodging and ice fishing packages available at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/Lodging.
