LAKE OF THE WOODS ORIGINAL WEEKLY FISHING REPORT, February 21st, 2016
Window Shopper; a fish on the screen but does not take the bait. There have been a lot of Window Shoppers this winter season and the trend continued this past week. Anglers staying with the smaller baits are still having more success. Generally a rattle jig on one stick and a plain hook on a dead stick will improve the catch rate.
Again this week we have moved houses each day. We are covering ice from 7 to 12 miles north of Pine Island. The houses are spread out but with little variation of depth of water.
The forecast looks positive for the week ahead with temps in the single digits overnight to mid 20’s during the day. We would like to see this weather pattern continue for the rest of the season, it should help improve the bite and keep a snow cover on the ice for March. We still have some midweek availability in March.
Summer rates are set and updated on our website, the postcards will be mailed shortly. Pick your dates and book soon as some dates are already filled.
