Anyone hunt Lake of the Woods for opener?

3 posts in this topic

Did anyone hunt the big lake for opener? I was wondering if there are any ducks around up there. I will be going in the morning to start the season down here.

We go up there and hunt geese mainly, but we shoot a few ducks too in the fields and whatnot. As far as the lake shore, it can get crowed, there are some good spots to hunt though. Our biggest problem has been getting the boat of the water. We have always had a strong wind blowing right into the spot where we wanted to hunt, and by stron wind I mean there were two to three footers out there. My buddy has a video of me wading out into the wild rice to see if I could pass shoot a few divers that were buzzing over. Well, needless to say I took one over the waders, and that was enough of that. I have always seen lots of ducks there though, in fact my uncle is there right now hunting ducks and geese. I will post tomorrow evening and let you know how he did.

Take Care and Good Hunting!!

We hunted it last year for a couple of days and had ducks every day. We hunted the morris point and four mile bay area...seems like everyday that we were out there the ducks were in the decoys before our guns were out. The wind and waves did make it quite tricky though. Lots of fun and can't wait to get back up there this year.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
