lake of the woods

4 posts in this topic

Hello everybody. My dad & brothers are heading up to Red Indian Lodge on Whitefish Bay in Ontario this weekend for a week and I was wondering if any of you had any fishing spots for us. We will probably be fishing most for walleye, smallmouth & northern pike. I would really appreciate any info you can give.

Thanks,

Skeeterluver, you are in for a great trip. Red Indian is located on a beautiful part of the lake (not too far from my camp) Anyways, for walleye's you are probably going to want to head west towards Yellowgirl Point. That's about where the walleye's start to congregate the most. It's about a 20-25 mile hike. Speak with people at the resort, I'm sure they won't be too tight lipped, especially for paying guests. Would you be guided, or doing it yourself? You need to know what you are doing if you are going to run 50-60 miles up there. Lots of rocks. If you do know what you are doing, then good luck. Fish around Kenora (45 miles NW) have been scattered all over from 5' to 40'. Fishing has been great though.

Thanks for the response. We will not be guided, so I know I am taking my lower unit into my own hands on this lake. I have fished it before but on the MN side. If the lake is down like the lakes in southern MN, then I am sure it will be an adventure. I really do appreciate the info. Take care & thanks again.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
