I did lose quite a few of my photos that were sent to me when my phone did the big dive to the bottom of the lake.

On the south end… Ice conditions on LOW are excellent. Some great walleyes and saugers caught this week. Fishing was up and down with cold fronts, -31 air temps, etc. Plenty of fish for fish frys, some trophy walleyes, big sturgeon, some jumbo perch, an occasional pike, crappie or tulibee and plenty of sauger in the mix. Most anglers fishing 25 – 30′ if on structure, 30′ – 36′ over mud. Resort houses continue to follow fish and are moving constantly. Best colors gold, pink, glow red and UV glow colors. Both jigging line and deadstick with a live minnow producing based on mood of walleyes. Electronics very helpful. Watch for suspended walleyes. Rattles and noise effective.
On the Rainy River… The river is frozen over with some snowmobile traffic on marked trail. Current has dropped some, but still strong. Extra caution is always needed on the river. Thin ice near International Bridge in Baudette and thinner ice on stretches of the river. Work through resort if ice fishing for safety.
Up at the NW Angle… Good fishing continues with a mix of walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, pike and eelpout. Cold fronts can affect bite from day to day, adjust to mood of fish. Downsize if finicky, keep minnow active on deadstick. Snowmobile trails from south end to Angle groomed and in good shape. Stay on trails as there are ice chunks on lake. Fish houses on LOW on the ice through March.
Connie is back on track with my Phone 320-630-6734

Thank you for your patience and understanding! I have a lot of catching up to do with messages! I will get back to you ASAP.
the love of my life
Winter Lake Access is OPEN to:
On the south end… Fishing reports are good. A nice mix of saugers and walleyes, with some trophy walleyes, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike, tullibees and a lot of sturgeon being caught. During a typical day, there are flurries of activity mixed with some slower time. It helps to put in a full day, keep your lines active and use electronics. Watch for suspended fish coming through on your electronics, often nice walleyes. Most resorts have fish houses out in 25- 32 feet of water. Best colors gold, pink, glow red and UV glow colors. Use combo jigging line and deadstick with a live minnow. Numerous ice roads are open, many allowing 3/4 ton trucks with wheel houses. Every ice road is different, check ahead as ice road limits vary.
On the Rainy River… The river is frozen over but little traffic with higher than usual current. Extra caution is always needed on the river, most sticking to lake so far. No snowmobile trail on Rainy River as of yet with thin ice areas due to current.
Up at the NW Angle… Fishing is excellent with a mix of walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, pike and eelpout. With over a foot of snow, snowmobile trails from south end to Angle are being groomed and will be in good shape. Stay on trails as current is high and there are still some areas needing more inches of ice. Fish houses on LOW on the ice through March.
