Walleye, ice fishing, sleeper house, Lake of the Woods MNOverall, a good week of fishing.  Mixed reports across the lake.  From the south end, some of the best reports coming from 22-25 miles north between Knight / Bridges Islands and Garden Islands.  Resorts have houses in place and there is an ice road as well.  Some morning fish coming from 18′ in front of Pine Island.  Reefs around Long Point producing meals of fish but not buckets of fish.

On the Rainy River, frozen shiners in 15-20′ most consistent.  Mainly locals fishing river.  Decent morning / evening bite.

Up at the NW Angle good fishing continues.  One day the fish are on the reefs, the next day on the edges.  Go to depth, 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.
