Fishing Report for 2-7-23

Now’s a great time to go ice fishing in the Willmar Lakes Area! Active crappie are being pulled from Nest Lake near Camp Sanderson using Clam plastics and anything with a Wonder Bread color pattern. Foot Lake is great for catching northerns throughout the day using minnows and crappie at dusk with minnows and wax worms. Anglers have been pulling bluegills and crappie from the southeastern shoreline of Eagle Lake starting at 10 feet deep and walleye off the west point in 14-20 foot depths. Stop by Pete’s Surplus in New London to stock up on bait and tackle while also getting the latest fishing report for the area!

Please Note: The aeration system on Willmar and Foot Lakes in Willmar has been turned on causing thin ice and open water on parts of the lakes. “Thin Ice” markers are set out where the system is in operation, so please stay away from those areas of the lake.
