Woman Lake night fishing

3 posts in this topic

I have heard that fishing at night on Woman is good for Walleyes. I was wondering if this is true and what methods work best? Thanks

We have caught some of our best fish at night on Woman. Most times it is with in the first couple of weeks of Opener, which I am sure a lot of lakes will produce the same thing. Trolling cranks in the shalllows have produced numbers and size. Last year we trolled until 3:30AM and landed multiple fish over 20 inches.

That's good advice. I have been fishing Woman Lake after dark for years. It is a very good night fishing lake. You don't learn it over night, but both cranks and slip bobbers have their place.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
