Depends where you want to fish, the upper or lower lake. The launch on the south side of lake city is nice, but can be busy. There is also a decent launch on the north side of Lake city. 4 seasons bait in Red Wing is Ok. It is just past Mcdonalds.

Herky, Try the Hok-Si-La public landing on the north side of lake city then. It is a short trip to Maiden Rock from there, plus there are few points you can work around on your way up too. Good luck out there!

Stop in to Ike's Bait & Tackle. We'll show you where to go and give you information on where the fish are biting.

Take hwy 61 into town and turn right at the Perkins. Follow the service road back under the bridge and we are the big green building next to the Super 8 motel.

We where just voted one of the top 10 bait stores in Minnesota by Minnesota Tourism.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
