Can anyone help me out?

5 posts in this topic

Ill be heading up feb 8th through the 10th and havent been to lake of the woods since new years of 2000 and was wondering if anyone could point me in a general direction to where i could find some walleyes and sauger. I know 30-32 feet of water would be the best bet. would you recommend farther out. My boss was 9 miles out and got quite a few walleyes and sauger. Thanks for any help at all.

Without knowing the area you are fising it is tougher to give

you much info but the deeper water has been pretty good. The

further you can get away from everyone else the better. Try to

find someplace quiet.

Have fun and good luck

Yes Zippel is great and they have a lot of there houses out off Hot Spot road to the East. You could try that. The word was they were doing great.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
