Ice Fishing in Full Swing

Posts: 351
On the south end... Ice fishing is in full swing. Resorts have fish houses out and good numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught. Cold fronts can slow the bite some but be patient and work lures. Most ice fishing is taking place between 23 - 27'. One the jigging line, spoons with a minnow head or tail effective for jigging line. Gold spoons with a red glow stick has been effective. Other colors, gold, glow, glow red, pink. On the deadstick, a glow jig or plain hook with a live minnow. A mix of walleyes and saugers with some jumbo perch, big pike and eelpout this week.

On the Rainy River... Ice fishing on the river mainly by locals has been good overall. Mornings and evenings have produced the best walleye action. Ice conditions vary greatly, work through a resort for safety.

Up at the NW Angle... With the border closure, NW Angle Resorts and Community have pulled together and will have a guest ice road across the lake up to the Angle so anglers can drive to resorts. The NW Angle Guest Ice Road will begin when ice conditions allow, most likely early January. The snowmobile trail is staked soon across the lake. Another option, North Country Air is flying anglers to the Angle. Contact your favorite NW Angle resort for details.

Ice fishing reports continue to be excellent. A mix of walleyes, saugers and jumbo perch. Great bite continues with the morning - evening in 15-19' of water. Afternoons, 22-26' have been best. Communicate with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics and safety. A complete list of lodging and ice fishing packages available at
