Was at Zippel Bay this weekend. I recommend fishing low and slow with white jigs or jigging rapalas. Best bite at early am or evening. Check out the Igloo - great pizza.

Depends if you are off a plowed road. Only saw tracked vehicles on the ice. Tough to say. Where you fishing, probably matters. I would think a sled would be best bet.

Hey Joe, I see lots of people on here asking your advice with no response but I am hoping maybe you PM? We are going to Devils Lake Nd from Wisconsin the last weekend in March and want to stop at LOW for one afternoon of pike fishing on our way. We will only have ATV (no snowmobile), how far out will we have to go for pike that time of year, and "should" it be accessible by ATV by then? Also do you or anyone have any suggestions on where to fish pike in March/April out there. We were thinking of going out from Warroad. Never been to LOW so anything will help. Thanks for any tips.

Fished Saturday afternoon through Tuesday morning out of Arnesens Rocky Point Resort. First time on lotw and first in a sleeper on the ice. Between two of us, landed over 70 fish with most being small sauger and eyes. Ate fish each day and managed a limit for home. Highlight was a 12.5 pound eelpout. Did get two toulibee and 7 perch with one over 13" long. Good trip. Temp never broke -5 so did not venture out of the shack.

Sun, Snow & Fishing on Lake of the Woods - Feb. 16, 2015

Some good reports this week. Fish are spread out, electronics and focusing on fishing helps the fish bucket. Good reports between Knight and Bridges islands and Garden Island in 27-33'.

On the Rainy River, frozen shiners in 15-20' with orange or chartreuse is still the go to. Some sturgeon being caught and released. Please work through outfitters and bait shops and know where you are going on ice.

Up at the NW Angle good fishing continues around reefs in 23 - 30'. Jig one line, dead stick second line. A mixed bag, with more walleyes than saugers. Some jumbo perch, pike and eelpout mixed in.

Ice Depth: 29" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 6° - 10° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
A good week of fishing. The success from day to day is effected by weather systems moving through. Downsize lures the days fish get sluggish. Electronics helpful. Many of the best reports from the south shore are from anglers headed out 20 miles or more. Combo of walleyes and saugers. Structure around Knight and Bridges or Garden Island are doing well. Long Point and Arnesen's reefs still producing meals of fish with an occasional trophy.

On the Rainy River, frozen shiners in 15-17' with orange or chartreuse is still the go to. Please work through outfitters and bait shops and know where you are going on ice.

Up at the NW Angle good fishing continues on the edge of structure in 20 - 30'. Jig one line, dead stick second line. A mixed bag, with more walleyes than saugers. Some jumbo perch, pike and eelpout mixed in. Big crappies on the Canadian side. Fish houses on ice through March 31st.
