What part of the lake are their houses put out? Anyone know how far they are put out at this point. Feedback welcome. Planning on comming up after Christmas. If this dont work out, will certainly be checking into Appledorns and Hunter Winfields for a Feb. repeat.

Stayed there last year in mid January and the houses were just out in front of the resort. had pretty good luck with perch and a few walleyes. Just talked to them yesterday and they had two small houses out but they didn't say where. they said that all of their houses will be out by new years. hope this helps.

When people are referring to areas of the lake, what area of the lake would Eddys be considered. I am quite unfamiliar with Mille Lacs, having only fished it a couple of times in the winter. Plenty of time to learn, but hoping to speed up the curve.

Also, we are heading up Dec. 26...any insight into targeting depths, particular structure in the area, set ups would be appreciated. My understanding is the perch bite has been better than the walleye. We are looking for a bite most importantly. Will have portables with as well.

thanks in advance-at least let me know a bit about the locations on the lake when you referring to particular spots, or direct me to a map so I can educate myself.

Eddy's is on the southwest side of the lake. It's right across Hwy 169 from Kathio State Park, which is between Lundeen's/Meleen's bait shops and the casino.

In that area of the lake you might try fishing off Rocky Reef to the southeast. I would start in the morning at 20 feet deep and go deeper (down to 32 feet) as the day went on. I have caught walleyes and perch there last winter.

Thanks for the tips! I am confident that if we have some success, the wife will demand that I go with her. She is feeling a bit left behind, as its myself and three friends this time. jk

      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.
