Thanks Doug and Cliff.....past week fishing

5 posts in this topic

Nice to meet you Doug and for showing us around your place. That night after talking to you we started getting into the bigger walleyes every night we caught 2 or more over the slot and plenty of 14-16inch within. Won't know about the fall trip for a while here as the father in-law got into a cycle accident so trip plans are on the back burner for now.

Cliff, I saw your boat a couple times but you were either leaving Bayview after lunch or heading in that direction for lunch. Maybe in the fall I'll catch up with you. Do you know how did the group of dad's and kids do from Chicago? I wonder how many line tangles they had on the pontoon.

Scott26,

Phill Bakken and I guided the group of dads and their sons that were from chicago and staying at Bayview Lodge.

The pontoon boats did not do very well fishing, but all of the group took turns fishing 1/2 day trips with Dave and I and they all ended up catching their limits of walleyes! laugh.gif

They had a great fish fry on their last night there and also had a few fish each to take home.

A great group of boys! laugh.gif

Tangled line are all part of the day! tongue.gif

Scott,

Sorry it took so long to get back. It was great to meet you guys as well. Glad that you got into the bigger fish. The bite has still been pretty good, but the better bite is later in the evening. In fact, right now as we speak.

Hope you can make it up!!!

Doug

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
