With ice at around 20 inches, we’re continuing to make good ice and checking it daily. We’re fishing in 30 feet of water, catching fish on the dead stick using frozen shiners and fatheads on a red hook. Keep the bait six inches from the bottom. Green 3/8 oz jigs are best for jigging. The daytime bite seems to be best between 11 am and 4 pm.
Tip of the Week:
If you are dead sticking let the fish take it for just a second longer before setting the hook. Some of the fish being caught have been pretty soft on the bite.
Trails are marked and grooming is in progress. For more information about the trails and the latest on the land trails, check out Lake of the Wood’s Drifters and the Northwest Angle Edge Riders Facebook pages.
Friendly Reminder to Keep it Clean
We all love this incredible resource and to continue to make it a great place to enjoy we need to keep it clean. Let’s all work together and Keep it Clean by not leaving any garbage on the lake or disposing of any down the ice holes. Thank you for your shared cooperation.
