Lake of the Woods Ice Fishing: That’s a Wrap!

Warmer days are upon us on the northern border of Minnesota! The frozen waters and snow are thawing, and our ice fishing season has come to a close with the early turning of seasons. Though we are sad to be wrapping up yet another bountiful Lake of the Woods ice fishing season, we are excited to be getting out onto the open water once again. If you haven’t been keeping up with our Lake of the Woods ice fishing report, here is a look back on what happened over the winter months here at River Bend Resort!

Lake of the Woods Ice FishingThe “Reel” Deal

This winter may have been shorter than expected, but that didn’t stop our guests from reeling  some spectacular catches. This Lake of the Woods ice fishing season definitely showed us that the cold doesn’t phase us in the great north of Minnesota. Trophy walleyes and a few northerns were a hit this year, and we could not have been more excited for our guests as they reeled in their very own monster catches. There is nothing quite like dropping your line through the ice with good friends and feeling that first heavy tug as you see a trophy-sized fish coming up from the bottom. Though the colder weather in February had us sinking to deeper levels to snag fish, they proved to be just as hungry. Even with a shorter season, the bites were phenomenal!
