Fish houses must be removed from the lake by the end of Monday, March 1st.
After March 1st, you may use your fish house on the ice during the day from one hour before sunrise until midnight. It may also remain on the ice from midnight until one hour before sunrise ONLY when occupied or attended. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/shelter.html
When removing your house, please help us keep the lake clean by picking up your trash and blocks when you leave!
It’s amazing we go from a week of 20 below low temps to a week of 40 degree highs. We’ve had plenty of calls from anglers wondering about ice conditions in this warmer period. As of now, the ice is still very thick in the 18 to 28 inch range depending on where you’re going. Accesses are getting beat up due to road salt and heavy usage. We’ve been doing our best to smooth out our access, but it will be wet and bumpy all weekend with this continued warmer weather. You’ll notice orange cones in front of the marina. We are using them to divert traffic around the ruts and potholes to preserve the access for as long as we can. Our access fee is $5 per vehicle per day on the weekend.
Unfortunately we do NOT have any shiners or sucker minnows available this weekend. Fathead minnows are in short supply as well, so we are limiting sales to ½ scoop per customer.
We’ll see you on the ice!
