Lake of the Woods continues to produce great numbers of fish! Our houses are currently located in 18-23′ of water. Pink and red glow in the dark or gold jigging spoons tipped with a frozen shiner or a dead stick with a glow in the dark plain hook using a live minnow seem to be the techniques of choice.
As for ice thickness in the areas we have checked we have found anywhere from 10-13″ of ice. We are currently allowing ATVs,snowmobiles and side by sides out of our access. Please,do not venture outside of the marked areas as the ice conditions still greatly vary.
Sleepers will be pulled out on the lake in the early part of this week and we have openings available! Don’t wait,book your ice fishing adventure with Sweet’s Fishing today!
Sweet’s Fishing has hit Lake of the Woods to begin the 2017-2018 ice fishing season! Our day houses are currently on the lake in roughly 18′ of Water and producing fish! The sleeper houses will be heading for the lake in the early part of next week. We currently have openings in the sleepers for next weekend! We hope to see you on Lake of the Woods real soon! Tight lines everyone!
Work began yesterday prepping the crossing for the upcoming season. The lake still has a few open spots on it from the warmer weather and wind earlier in the week but that should all change next week as temps will quickly drop back into the teens and lows in the singles. The existing ice on the lake isn’t ready yet for travel so no travel on the main lake is currently advised. Again,safety is the first and foremost priority during the ice fishing season.
Pike fishing remains strong in the Bostic Creek for those who have ventured out spearing and tip up fishing with several northerns of 40″+ being reported.
We will be back on the ice next week when the cool temps arrive to flood areas at the crossing and check ice and should have another update mid-week. Have a safe weekend!
