My girlfriend and I will be attending this weekend. She kicks my butt whenever we go fishing(I'm always untangling her line smile.gif). This weekend will probably be no different. I have a 6-7 hour drive after work Friday, so it'll be a looong night and day. I would've liked to have gotten there a day earlier to do a little fishing and scouting around. Oh well, will have to wing it.....Fishing, fun, food, trophys, and a chance at some great prizes......Count me in!!!

I'll be there. Unfortunately, the wife isn't interested in ice fishing, so I'm flyin' solo. I do hope to hook up with some of the pro staff and pick up a few tips and hints, though.

See you all there.

That sounds great! Cold front makeing ice to be followed by a warm up, the fish should be on the bite by Saturday with that weather scenario. Temps in the 20s is very tolerable even for the not so "hardcore" fisherman. It sounds as though the bite on Winni has been doing real well as of late. Get those weigh in scales ready, get the grills going! Make room in the truck to possibly bring home some great prizes.....Here we come!!! grin.gif PS: It sounds like there'll be a lot of women and kids comeing along. So guys, this may be your chance to get the lady involved with your fishing hobby. Women like to see other women around, and as far as introducing them to ice fishing...No where better than Winni! Lots of action, few lulls in activity, and a social affair, she'll be begging you..."Hey honey, Turn that game off and let's go fishing!"...Well, we can wish for that at least. smile.gif

Just so most of you know.

Most of the Pro Staff (especially those that know Winnie well) are going to be there to help out those who are looking for likely fish holding spots and/or would like some help with technique.

While we are going to crown the "World's Greatest Ice Angler" the ICE Series is mainly about introducing more people, families, women, and kids to the fun aspects of being on the Leading Edge of ice fishing.

      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.  
    • rundrave
      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.

      Thanks for clearing up your statement.  So what is the daily limit down there?  
    • SkunkedAgain
      How thick is the snow on the lake? Is there any left?

      His guide business harvests less than 1,000 teal a year. The state of Louisiana harvests over 150,000 teal a year and over 2 million ducks total. If that makes sense. 
    • leech~~
      Maybe I'm confused, but I hope one guide is not killing anywhere near the birds as an entire state of hunters?

      On the south end...   Ice fishing continues strong and it is still winter on the border.    Overnight temps in the teens and twenties are maintaining ice nicely.  Fishing continues to be excellent.  It has been an incredible year for walleyes and saugers with both numbers and size.     Resort fish houses and sleeper fish houses are available.  Some ice roads are allowing pickup trucks pulling wheelhouses as well.  Check with each individual ice road for specific limits.   As always, and certainly this year, it is important to stay on the resort ice roads.  It is tempting to go off on your own as there isn't much snow, but that is a risky move any time of the year.  Resorts and outfitters keep their roads on the best ice and monitor it numerous times per day.   Lake of the Woods enjoys an extended ice fishing season each year.  Fish houses are allowed on the ice through March 31st, the walleye / sauger season goes through April 14th and the pike season never ends.   The majority of ice fishing for walleyes and saugers is taking place in 24 - 34 feet of water.  Jigging one line and using a live minnow on the second line is the way to go.   Pike anglers fishing shallower shoreline breaks and reporting good activity and big fish.  Pike activity will only increase as we approach the month of March.  Arming your spread with a mixture of live and dead baits will allow you to quickly figure out what the pike wants that day. Alewife, smelt, herring, numerous sizes of live suckers, or even large shiners work well. On the Rainy River...  Most ice fishing is taking place on the lake.  There are a couple of resorts that ice fish on the Rainy River.  Know ice conditions or work through a resort or outfitter for safety.    The river is open east of Birchdale.  Those who enjoy the spring open water season on the river are optimistic the river will open early.  Is your boat and fishing gear ready when it does? Up at the NW Angle...   Another very good week of ice fishing up at the Angle.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike and some big crappies in the mix.   Water conditions are clearer this winter compared to most.  For that reason, the morning and evening bites have been stronger than midday overall. Jigging one line and deadsticking the second line is the way to go.  Electronics help in determining what the fish want that given day and will up your catch of fish.   Ice fishing has been excellent, come on up.  It's still winter on the border!

      There's only one Waterfowl guide in the country that I went to. He runs about 20 trips a year. So he harvests about 185,000 less teal a year than some of the individual southern states. In MN, lots of the teal are gone before the early teal season
