Woman Lake Walleyes

6 posts in this topic

I am going to be taking some friends fishing on Woman Lake this weekend. I normally fish Leech Lake but they grew up near Hackensack and want to fish Woman, and I am unfamiliar with where to fish for wallleyes on Woman but have heard it is a pretty good lake to fish in the fall. Any help as far as where to fish, best bait, etc. would be more than appreciated. After this weekend I will once again return to Leech Lake. Thank you.

How was Woman?

I am going to be near there this weekend to help a Buddy do some Fall Clean up. He has a boat and we may try to get on the water and fish for a few hours. Did you have any luck fishing? I see the weather is looking coller and some clouds for the weekend-May be the right recipe for some walleyes to start getting their winter "Coats" on!!

We did quite well. Got a few off of the drop between Gov Point and Horseshoe Island a couple on the west side of Horseshoe and a couple in front of the gold coast one being just shy of 7 pounds. We got most of our fish longlining redtails although we did get a couple with jigs and shiners. Got a mess of perch with shiners in close to government point

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
