Where to fish this weekend

7 posts in this topic

Where would you recommend going this weekend? Depths? Colors?

I did pretty good for perch and eyes on Bemidji last weekend...

I'm trying Bemidji tonight and probably Upper Red tommorrow on into the evening. Depending on how it goes up there I may come back and fish the late night on Bemidji.

will do. Did okay on Bemidji tonight, bite started at 5:15pm and went pretty good for about an half hour. Couple decent eye's and a couple really nice jumbos. Caught some smaller walleyes that got put back to grow up, 12" range. Packed up at 6:45pm and headed home, my 4 year old was looking pretty tired out. Looking forward to Red tomorrow.

Went out of Aggasiz, 10 miles west and a mile north. Very few people out there, had a decent bite between 5:30pm to 6pm then it shut down. Couple wally's, one nice crappie, and a decent perch. Left at 8pm.

Tried Bemidji this morning, not much moving. Marked a couple and pulled up a couple perch between two guys.

Buck- Did you move around drilling holes finding fish or more of staying and waiting game? Thanks for the reports. I may be up on Red this weekend.

we moved around a little bit, less then 20 holes. I've had tough luck on Red this season, but the bite is starting to pick up. Next time up I think I'm going to focus on areas a little closer to the shoreline as the crappies should start moving in within a couple weeks. Good luck and let me know how you do.

      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!
