Ice Fishing is in Full Swing on Lake of the Woods

Posted by

16-18" in some areas and many of the resorts have houses out already. Roads have been plowed over Pine Island but we hear it is rough going. Take caution to follow the trails. When a sign indicates that you should not go any further - STOP! ATV's have been known to go under when cautions are not heeded. Let's start this season off safely.

Here at Tom's Tackle, Dave and Shirley have loaded the truck and trailer and have begun their usual winter routes and that is exciting. Good times in Lake of the Woods and any place where there is good ice. We hear that Red Lake is doing good with shiners still close to shore so you don't have to go very far out to catch the Walleyes. They too have 16-18" in most areas.

Check us out on Facebook and let us know your favorite fishing hole and how the ice is there. We like to hear from people and see just how everyone is doing.

Good times!
