Ice conditions in the area have not changed too much in the last two weeks.

New Year Brings Cold, Snowy Conditions

We are happy to report that some portions of Lake Superior are starting to hold ice sheets. Still a long ways to go for the Gitch, but lets all cross our fingers.

Unstable Atmosphere Slows Fishing

Fish tend to bite good right before a change in weather happens.

Warm Weather Slows Ice Progress

This last week, we have experienced less than ideal temperatures for ice making. Let's all cross our fingers for some cold weather.

More and More Anglers Taking to the Ice

Around the Twin Ports we have many fishable opportunities. Most lakes in the area now have plentiful ice for walking.

Ice, Ice, Baby

Ice is on its way with several inland lakes providing safe conditions for walking - but as always, caution should be taken.

Area Lakes Busy Making Ice

This year we are way ahead of schedule for safe ice. With that being said, remember to take great caution when venturing out. Safety should be number one priority.

Fishing Success in Early November

The St. Louis River and numerous other tributaries are high, dirty and fast. At least we have been able to get out and tackle some fish.

Aggressive Walleyes on the Chew

Wool socks, gloves and a couple of hand warmers have been very necessary while fishing this week, but the fish have been cooperating.

Fall Bite in Full Swing

This last week of angling has been positive as far as waters cleaning up and returning to normal following our early October storm.

Rollercoaster Weather Makes Fishing Touch and Go

Inland waters have been good - if anglers are looking for easy success, this is the best bet!

With all the opportunities this time of year, it can be difficult to make decisions on what to do. I like to refer to this month as "ROCKTOBER."

Great Fishing Expected for Fall

Fishing success usually is a sure bet throughout this time of year and we look forward to tackling some awesome outings as we close out our open water season.

Challenging Conditions with Changing Weather Patterns

The good size storm that visited last weekend has halted any type of fishing for the St. Louis River and parts of Lake Superior.

Fall Color Hits the Shoreline

We are in the in the early stages of fall turnover and this has made for some tough fishing, depending on where you are casting a line.

Summer Fishing Winding Down

We are definitely changing up some techniques and patterns as summer days dwindle down.

Jarrid Houston | September 5, 2018

Start Planning New Patterns and Tactics

Daylight hours continue to diminish and overnight temperatures are definitely playing a role in water temperatures.

Fishing Remains Good into Late August

We are almost to September, where fishing usually heats up, so let's hope we are not using up all our luck.

Good Bites Continue in Hot, Muggy Conditions

Though a good bite persists in the hot weather, the best time to fishi is still during the cooler parts of the day - especially into the night.

No Excuse to Not Go Fishing

Warm temperatures are making for comfortable fish outings - the only bad part about htis time of year is the bugs!

Fun Bite with Consistent, Warm Weather

August is here, so time to gear up, gas up and get out.
