Time for another Lake of the Woods update here at Ballard’s Resort! We hope everyone is having a great holiday season, and is getting plenty of time out on the ice! It is our first real day back on the ice after Christmas and the report is sounding pretty good. The mornings seem to be slower but the bite picks up throughout the day with plenty of good eater size fish being brought up.

The guides have told me we are seeing anywhere from 12″ – 16″ of ice in Four Mile Bay and anywhere from 15″-18″ out on the lake. They have our ice houses set up 3.5 miles out from Pine Island in anywhere from 27′ – 30′ of water.

Availability is starting to fade so if you’re looking for a winter ice fishing adventure,  be sure to give us a call to set the hook!
