12-5-18 Fishing Report: Early ice fishing on Lake of the Woods is off to a hot start with limits coming in daily. The Walleye bite is primarily in the 11-16′ of water range with larger keeper and slot fish being reported in the early mornings and evenings. Meanwhile,the Sauger bite is primarily being reported in the 24-26′ of water range with steady numbers being reported in the mid-afternoons.
The hot color right now is glow in the dark pink on a buckshot,stop sign or other type of jigging spoon tipped with either a fat head or shiner head. Vexlars or other depth finders are highly recommended at this time as the fish need to be worked before they will bite.
Our access will be open to ATVs,side by sides and snowmobiles beginning tomorrow(12-6-18). We are finding anywhere from 11-13″ of ice in the area where our houses are along with clean water. Please,do not venture from the marked areas and check with us,bait shops or other outfitters before venturing onto Lake of the Woods.
We have sleeper availability this weekend as well as day house and cabin availability during the week and on weekends heading into Christmas. Give us a call at 218-368-7323 and book your Lake of the Woods fishing adventure today!
