Thanks for the comment. Went by there today and was wondering about it and what kind of fish were in it. The look of it took me back to the days of fishing the Crosby/Ironton mines. Good times. smile.gif

Lots of smaller to med size small mouths, large mouths, pans and hybrid pans...they bite on worms.. cause its a trout lake , remember no minnows, but you can use salted or canned minnows, leeches or waxies.. I just found out about leeches from the DNR.. i asked..they are live bait so it kind of confuses me... Try the Berkley power bait there.. i have the pink color, haven't tried the orange yet..but they also are biting on worms too.. off the boat landing they are in as well but watch the tree stumps to your right there..

The water level is up.

If you go to the public pier take the stairs down better that way..theres a bbq grill right there by the top of the stairs, you have to look for them..

curfew is 11 pm for trout lakes..

i am sure you know all this..

You can also cast slip bobbers off the pier to get a bit more distance. In summer I set it for about 20 feet deep, but with water temps as they are now it wouldn't have to be fished that deeply.

Just gotta pull it really tight before you clip off the extra.

Wetting before you tighten it helps as well. I've found some brands are prone to loosening up more than others. Most likely due to the thread.

I leave a little "tag" on the ends of a slip bobber knot when clipping, just enough to be able to tighten after it loosens up, but not enough to hamper casting.

So i should cut off the threat i just put on and start over? It might be better..

I slips the tread off the black plastic tube and i pulled as hard as i could, but i did clip it tight to the thread, i didn't know if casing would get tangle .. Will try again..

Thanks for the help...

      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.
