Here’s a current picture of the lake and Bostic creek taken today. As you can see the lake froze over kind of rough but it’s still workable. Currently we’ve heard reports of ice thickness anywhere from 4-6″ on the big lake and four mile bay and 4-5 1/2″ on the Rainy River. Early fishing reports from the early ice river bite sound promising with reports of limits being caught fairly quickly while jigging and even reports of continued shiner activity which bodes well for the fishing on the lake once it is ready. There’s a couple portables that walked out from Morris Point today and no word on how they did but have heard rumors that despite the rough appearance,the water below the ice is semi-clear. Please consult with your resort before venturing out onto the ice to check on the most up to date ice conditions. The forecast in the next 7 days bodes quite well to continue to thicken the ice at a fairly steady rate. We are now taking reservations and should have our houses out on the lake before Christmas with no problem! Give us a call at 218-368-7323 and book your fishing adventure today!
