King- Fish pokie on a regular basis and lately it has been hit or miss. 3 keepers for the last five outings but thats why they call it fishin. Have been caughtin some small eyes lately -10 to 14 inchers which is a real good sign of things to come. Acouple years ago i never saw one that small and if you don't have small ones the fishery can die pretty fast. The northerns have been biting in deeper water for about a week now and its starting to get a little spendy when you set the hook and pull up a slack line.

How deep are you guys finding the walleyes.

Heading up tommorow, I'll probably start in about 20 fow. Hopefully the Mrs. will want to stay out late enough that we'll run into some eel pout too.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      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!
