Adrians resort has a maintained road off of Wheelers Point and out over Pine Island. You will need to stop there and purchase the road pass, $7.00. they are out to 32-33', several miles. Cross country off the plowed roads is almost impossible now without a sled. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Fished on Adrians road today in 28-29'. Good morning bite, dead for about 3 hours, & another flurry from 3-5PM. Small red & green glow rattle spoons & shiner head. Picked up several on a small green glow Northland airplane lure.

Some good sized eyes up to 22" & lots of nice sauger. Had 15 to 20 fish that most folks would keep & a bonus perch.

The 22" was suspended at ~20'. First suspender I've picked up in about a month. Gotta love those high flyers!

Bite was a real suprise as the barometer was extremely high. Had a lot of trouble getting fish to go back down the hole. Could it have something to do with the barometer? Lost lots of fish cause I had to bring them up so slow.

      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!
