This is the fishing report for Wednesday, February 15, 2018, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce. You may also hear this report by calling 218.847.5743 or 1.800.433.1888.
Ice conditions in the Detroit Lakes area are in great shape. Travel is no problem on area lakes with minimal snow cover. Trucks with up to 24 ft. wheel houses are good to go on almost all area lakes. The pan fish bite is the most consistent. The northern bite will continue to heat up. The walleye bite is up and down like a yo-yo with short bite windows, and numbers can be hard to come by right now. We are through the severe cold front now and the weather will be trending warmer with longer daylight hours now. The bite can improve with the nice weather, and it can be much more comfortable hole hopping.
