You are going to love ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. Lake of the Woods is a legendary fishery with over 14,000 islands, 65,000 miles of shoreline and the home to thousands of fish.
In the winter the ice gets up to 4 feet thick and fishing is a blast. At Sportsman’s we take care of everything so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the trip. The fish house, transportation to and from the fish house, jig sticks or rods/reels and jigs to use, bait, we clean your fish, offer fishing tips throughout the day and even have lunch delivery options.
We kick off our season in early December when we have 8-12 inches of ice. We place our fish houses off the main ice roads and along groomed trails.
The main catch is walleye and saugers but it is not uncommon to reel in an occasional northern pike, eelpout, sturgeon, perch, crappie, or tullibee. Our season runs through late March, unlike most Minnesota lakes.
