We have made another advancement out to fresh ice to escape the crowds on Lake of The Woods! We are starting to get into some BIG walleyes and a NICE mixture saugers and walleyes for the bucket!
The fish have been timid and stuck close to the bottom. Electronics have been a huge help for finding that stray walleye 3-5 feet of the bottom.
Best luck has been with pink and gold jigs with a nice red hook! Lightly tapping the bottom and when a fish is spotted holding still, there hasn’t been much “smacking” of lures.
Our ice houses are still about 6 miles out, sitting in 30-32 feet of water, and sitting on about 22-24 inches of ice with drifted snow 5-20 inches!
SET THE HOOK!
