Bif 11, not sure about October but I got into a bunch in September trolling #5 shads on the rock reefs. 10-12 foot of water in the afternoon. Once you find one stay on that spot. I picked up a dozen in a thirty minute time frame Northwest of Rocky reef well off the main spine. Might be a place to start.

The bays on the S end of the lake typically hold nice schools of perch that time of year. Look for deeper water adjacent to rocks and you should be able to bump into something. Last year, during the full moon, I believe there was a nice bite going in Isle Bay. Good luck!

      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!
