Rainy River is open up to Clementson with boats launching out of Frontier Access. Open water fishing is looking good! Trucks are still driving out on the ice and having good luck. This is the last weekend for Walleye Fishing until May 11th Fishing opener. Northern Pike is open year round and with Sturgeon fishing getting close take advantage of our $39.00 per person per night Special!

Fishing hasn’t changed much. We’re in 25 – 27 feet of water, sorting through lots of smaller fish with some keepers and some bigger slot fish. The northern fishing on Lake of the Woods has been fabulous! Check back soon for further updates!
March 7h, 2013
We’re in 21 – 27 feet of water, still sorting lots of small fish with keepers mixed with slot fish. Snow cover on the lake is still heavy with about 18 – 20 inches of snow. Ice conditions are great at 36 – 40 inches, needing an extension on the augers to get through. Fishing will continue to pick up as we get into March.
Feb. 28th, 2013
Fishing remains to be spotty in 27 to 29 ft. Lots of sorting through small walleyes and saugers, but still catching lots of slot fish with some big northern pike coming into play. Northerns came in at 22 and 25 lbs and 46 inches long! We are moving houses into 21, 23 and 25 ft. Weather is warming up so fishing is getting better, so check back frequently for updates!
Feb. 23, 2013
We pulled houses back into shallower water 27 to 29 ft. Fishing has been much better than the deeper water with lots of walleyes and saugers. You have to do a lot of sorting, but plenty of fish to eat, some to take home with quite a few slot fish and a few trophy fish to showcase on the wall. Spring is right around the corner as we enter into to March and we will keep moving shallower as spring gets closer. Check back for continuous updates!

Not much has changed with the fishing scene. We are moving our houses in to shallower depths of 28-30 feet to test out the action. There are still quite a few small ones being caught with a mixture of keepers and slot fish. We’re looking forward to the warmer temperatures this week and next!
Jan. 25, 2013
Fishing continues to be a little spotty, but the best action is in 33-34 feet of water. There are nice slot fish being caught and sorting through lots of smaller saugers and walleyes. There is still a good amount being kept to eat and hopefully the weather stabilizes the next couple of days for great fishing this weekend!
Jan. 18, 2013
We are fishing in 33-34 feet of water. Fishing has been slower with all the changing weather, but we’re still catching fish you just have to work a little harder to get them! When the weather stables out fishing will pick right back up. Gold jigs still seem to be the prominent fishing lure!
Jan 4, 2013
We are fishing in 30 – 32 ft. of water. Water clarity is good, gold jigs are working well jigging off the bottom. Lots of fish are begin caught with a lot of sorting. We’re seeing a lot of nice saugers and walleyes with some bigger slot fish.
Dec. 21, 2012
We have 11″- 12″ of ice of the big lake and are fishing in 24 – 26 ft. of water. There is a good mix of Walleye’s and Saugers being caught at a steady pace throughout the day. The fish are liking little to no jigging and keeping it right on the bottom. Red, Orange and Yellow Jigs and Stop Signs are the golden ticket.
Dec. 14, 2012
12″, 14″, 12″ fishing has been great, lots of fish, but you have to do some sorting for size! Our guests are doing pretty good and are getting a good mix of walleye and sauger. We are fishing at 21 ft and out to 26 ft of water. Ice conditions still vary, some areas 10-12″ of good ice. As always be safe and check with local resorts before venturing out and watch for updates in the future.

Let the Fishing Begin!
Our houses are out on the Lake. The houses are sitting on 17-18″ of ice starting tomorrow. The Big Lake has 9″ of good ice and Bostic Bay has 7-8″. Fishing has been going good, so get ready to enjoy the first Ice Fishing of the year!
Dec. 7, 2012
Checked Bostic Bay and the Big Lake after last night as it was a colder night with a little northwest wind temps it got down to around 10 degrees. Bostic Bay gained a little ice from 4 to 7 inches as of today. Most resorts are not allowing four wheeler traffic on Bostic Bay, the Big Lake has improved some today shore ice was 7 to 9 inches, further out in 12 to 15 ft. was 6 to 7 inches so it is getting better with colder weather. Sunday they are talking well below hopefully we can start sometime next week, safety first. Check with local resorts before heading north for ice conditions. Look for further updates tomorrow.
Dec. 6, 2012
We have been checking Bostic Bay, Four Mile Bay area and the Big Lake on a daily basis. Bostic Bay is not quite ready for the four wheeler traffic, although a few more days of cold weather it should be ready to go. The Big Lake cracked open from Zippel bay toward Lighthouse Gap with a strong southeast wind today, December 7th. We have colder weather forcasted the next few days and as of today there is 7 in. on the main lake but is not ready for the bigger resort houses. Hopefully next week with colder weather arriving we can start pulling our houses on to the big lake, but our customers safety comes first. Watch for further updates tomorrow.
Here is a link to the aerial video taken 12/5/12. It starts at Pine Island’s east end and follows past Zipple.
