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

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
