great week for walleyes

4 posts in this topic

My family went to BOTL last week and had a great time. I've never had many problems finding alot of walleyes, but this year they were nice. We ended up with 79 for the week, with only 6 or 7 small ones. We found them mostly from 18 to 32 FOW, using spinners and leeches. My 11 year old ended up with 19, two of them over 21", on his first official trip. Talk about being stoked..

we are headed to BOTL tomorrow for the weekend. What areas of the lake were the most productive for the walleyes. I am not looking for specific but just something in general

We fished mostly on the main lake. I'm heading back up Friday afternoon with some buddies for the weekend. Will be in A frame #3 (hopefully not very often).. But do plan on some serious beer drinking at the lodge at night. Stop by for a beer or a soda and we can chat.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
