The weather and the fishing are heating up at the Angle! On the MN side, the evening walleye bite has been strong around the Oak Island area. Move a few feet deeper off the edge of structure for a daytime mix of walleye, sauger and perch. On the Canadian side, the bite is still going strong, and there has been some nice walleye mixed in with the crappies.
We still have some snow cover on the ice, but it has melted down quite a bit. The ice sheet itself is still in pretty good shape, and should be around for a couple more weeks. Snowmobiles and 4-wheelers should be watching for deep water when following or crossing ice roads. The ice is bent downwards in spots, trapping the snowmelt. Use caution when running off-trail as well, we have seen some small open holes in current areas already.
