Jan. 6 Ice Fishing Report


Winter fishing is in full swing now — well not the snow, just the ice.

Gull Lake is still putting out walleyes in 18-25 feet on shiners, with most of the lake reporting 12 inches of ice. We do have a road out of Ernies but caution is still advised.

Round Lake is still hot with some reports of big fish being caught. The crappie bite is still going good on South Long, Blackhoof, Rice and Upper Gull lakes in 25-30 feet.
