A cold front moved in which made walleyes a bit more lethargic for a bit so anglers are having to work every fish with nice fish being caught. Resorts primarily fishing 24-32'. Long Point area fishing a little deeper and Rocky Point area finding good keepers near reefs. The shallow morning/evening bite continues to put some walleyes in buckets. Ice roads are maintained everyday by resorts so if issues arise they can be dealt with quickly. Some days jigging working best and others the dead stick or bobber is the better line. A rattle on jigging line helps coax fish in to bite. Electronics helpful. Typical LOW colors of gold, pink, and other glow colors working best. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension very likely. Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on LOW through March 31.

Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon through the ice. Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay. Morning, evening bite most effective.

The NW Angle has great ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing is very good.Walleyes in 18-21' with saugers and perch in 25-28'. The trend of jigging with a rattle calling in fish for dead stick much like south shore. Bright and gold rippin raps working well. Anglers catching slab crappies in holes of 28-32' in Ontario waters. Once you catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper. Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed often. A complete list of lodging, ice fishing packages and sleeper houses are available at
