This is the fishing report for Wednesday, November 13, 2019, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You may also hear this report by calling 218.847.5743.
Lakes have iced over in the Detroit Lakes area and the ice season has already started for some anglers. We have “walk out” ice only now on the small ponds and the smaller shallow basin lakes that were the first to ice over last weekend. Check ice as you go as early ice conditions can be unpredictable. Many of the larger and deeper lakes in the area just iced over and will not be ready for anglers until they have been totally iced over with multiple days of below freezing temps to thicken ice. Remember, 3-4 inches of consistently thick ice needs to be present for safe walk out ice conditions. No Wheels or sled at this time!
