On the south end... Ice conditions on LOW are excellent. Some great walleyes and saugers caught this week. Fishing was up and down with cold fronts, -31 air temps, etc. Plenty of fish for fish frys, some trophy walleyes, big sturgeon, some jumbo perch, an occasional pike, crappie or tulibee and plenty of sauger in the mix. Most anglers fishing 25 - 30' if on structure, 30' - 36' over mud. Resort houses continue to follow fish and are moving constantly. Best colors gold, pink, glow red and UV glow colors. Both jigging line and deadstick with a live minnow producing based on mood of walleyes. Electronics very helpful. Watch for suspended walleyes. Rattles and noise effective.

On the Rainy River... The river is frozen over with some snowmobile traffic on marked trail. Current has dropped some, but still strong. Extra caution is always needed on the river. Thin ice near International Bridge in Baudette and thinner ice on stretches of the river. Work through resort if ice fishing for safety.

Up at the NW Angle... Good fishing continues with a mix of walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, pike and eelpout. Cold fronts can affect bite from day to day, adjust to mood of fish. Downsize if finicky, keep minnow active on deadstick. Snowmobile trails from south end to Angle groomed and in good shape. Stay on trails as there are ice chunks on lake. Fish houses on LOW on the ice through March. A complete list of lodging and ice fishing options available at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/Lodging

lakeofthewoodsmn-- question for you as I have only went out of Adrians road before (once), which area of the lake on the south side is the safest to enter/go out with a 3/4 ton diesel with 8x16' house? Obviously, I will stay away from the river just not familiar with the resort roads up there and if one has less water movement thicker ice than the others.

Thank you
