What the problem is with this weather… is that it is BEAUTIFUL for ice fishing on Lake of the Woods, who can complain about sunny 20+ degree days? Fishing hasn’t been to shabby either with plenty of fish being caught, we wish we could get our average size up a little on the saugers, but dinner is STILL being served! We are set up in one of our favorite locations on Lake of the Woods, KNIGHT ISLAND!
Fishing hasn’t had a solid pattern between morning bite, afternoon bite or closer to evening heck we’ve had houses catching fish left and right all day while some seem to be on the dead sea!
But we are having luck with the basic’s small presentations. Smaller jigs with big hooks tipped with a live minnow sitting on a bobber 6-12 inches of the bottom. In the meantime, jigging with a smaller buck shot (color hasn’t been decided but BRIGHT) tipped with just the head of the minnow!
Bombers are still about an hour ride each way so dress in layers!
We are excited to have a GREAT late ice season!
