Fishhook

Been trying to get out on Fishhook the past 3 days. The wind and the cold is making that a not so enjoyable expierience. I was out there for a couple of hours today. Fish seem to be pretty inactive. Anyone else having any success.

I was out on Long this afternoon, and the bite was tuff. The fish would pick the bait up and then drop it.

This evening I went out on Fishhook. The bite was really slow out there also.

Fishing is a funny thing. I also fished yesterday (9-26). Fished from 12:30- 3:00 p.m. Picked up one nice eye 21 1/2 inches and two others that went 16 and 14. Redtails in 12-18 FOW. Lost a couple of others just before they got to the boat. Going to try it again on Friday afternoon. Fishing - it's not just for breakfast anymore.

Was at a different honey hole tonight on the Hook. Caught 10 eyes in a little over 2 hours. Mostly 14-17 inch fish. 18-26 FOW using redtails.

As far back as I can remember, yesterday was the first day I fished (10:30 a.m. -6:15 p.m.) a lake and had the entire lake to myself. A very enjoyable time. I saw two other boats but they were headed down the river, probably to be taken out for the year. I managed four walleye (saved one 19" for supper) and plenty of pike (two in the 25-27" range, all released)kept things interesting. Plan to get out there again today to enjoy the serenity.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
