Mid March trip advice

7 posts in this topic

Situation-

A couple of buddies and myself are looking to plan a mid-march trip up to LOW. We'd like to do a couple days/nights in a sleeper during the week. I am not very familiar with the area, and wading through all of the reports, ads, etc online is more frustrating than anything. Was wondering if anyone has any advice. Basically how the fishing typically is then, where should we head and maybe even who we should rent from.

Thanks for any help. aadey402@uwsp.edu is my email if you want to name an outfit to go through.

Click on the Riverbend Link on top of the Lake of the Woods forum and email them. I used them in January and am using them again in March. You might want to re evauluate using a daytime house and spend the evening in the resort. If it is only two of you going th price will be similar however it is a lot more comfortable. Lake of the Woods does not give up a lot of fish at night.

Mid to late March can be awesome on the big water. I am headedd back for the 8th year in late March and have always had great fishing. I try to make 4 trips a year and this is one of my favorites. Riverbend has been our resort of choice and we have no complaints. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Try Lyons Sleepers. Great Service and nice guys. We've always had great luck.

Thanks for the advice and emails everybody. I was reading the regs and though I understand the different regs, I'm not familiar with the lake enough to know the different areas(I've been on the rainy but that's it). Are either Zipple or Riverbend on areas that have special regs other than the 8 eye/sauger mix?

Just the 30 to 40 inch Pike safe slot. No slot on Saugers.

19.5 to 28 Walleyes must be released. You can clean Walleyes in

the fish house to eat, but not the entire catch.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
