Winter has made its presence known, 12 inches new snow and sub-zero temperatures.
The season we expect and cherish for our tourism trade is here. We can
proudly announce we have great ice for fishing and snowmobile trails. We expect
the ice road from Kabetogama to Ash River to be prepared and plowed this next
week, giving good access to anglers to reach fishing spots.
Anglers have had pretty good success this past week, a fairly steady
bite by jumbo perch has been a pleasant surprise. Walleye and sauger continue
to provide action by anglers using jig and minnow at 30-35’.
Northern pike being taken by line and spear in shallower water,
especially in bays providing weed growth holding bait fish.
All sports enthusiasts should use caution near or around pressure
ridges when traveling on the lake. Snowmobile lake trails are staked and I
noticed today some if not most the land trails have been groomed.
Come on up for a visit – we are ready for you now,
