Tuesday February 14th

The whistling of the NW wind stirs clouds of snow and frosty chills.  Outside the lodge…  The ground rumbles as the smokestacks on the idling Bombardiers puff a perfect white.

 Last minute flight schedules are checked…  Bombardier colors confirmed…  And as the green-flag drops on another winter morning, bundled ice fishermen shuffle off for the day’s adventure.

 And lately?  LOW (Lake of the Woods) has been shining like gold on the back of a trophy walleye!

 Good ice thickness…  Good snow conditions…  Good fish numbers…  GOOD-FUN-TIMES.

 The guides have us “on-the-reefs”.  And this past Friday / Saturday we literally “caught-a-thousand”.  No stretch by any means.  The two-day fish count was actually higher than that.  From the guides standpoint, this pushed the numbers of walleyes and saugers released to more than double that mark.  Wow!  Thousands!

 What else?  KEEP FISHING.

 As we move through FEB and into MAR:

 1)     Second time winter 2017 visitors enjoy 20% DISCOUNTS.

 2)     Or…  If you have not yet visited…  Go to BallardsResort.com and click on Winter Fishing Specials, to take advantage of more late-season package offers that carry us through the month of March.

 With current conditions, we hope to take ice fishing late into the season this year.

 Set the hook!
