Bring your flasher, own poles(they have the basics), seat cushion

beverages etc. They do provide bait (usually fatheads) and as mentioned, the basic hand-over-hand poles w/ a jig. As far as the bite... read other post in the forum... it changes day-to-day

I would bring my own gear as reccommended and the seat cusion is 1st on the list even before beverage. It's a long day on that metal folding chair without a cushion. Wear warm footwear if its cold because the floors are always cold and the ceilings 110 Degrees! I would also bring some kind of music as there's only one radio station that comes in. The guides will come and check up on you every couple of hours to see if your doing OK.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
