Lake Hanska

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone fish this lake last year? Any luck? I just looked at the DNR website to see if it had any structure, but there was not a map? does the lake have any structure, I am assuming not, but don't want to assume anything.

Lots and Lots of structure, its a really fun and challenging lake to fish, but if your driving down from Minnapolis I'd go someplace else, to a newbie the lake can be kind of intimidating, its about 8 miles long, narrow and full of dredge channels.

The structure is plentiful but it is also very small for the most part, most things aren't worth fishing more than 5 or 10 mineuts. Look shallow first if you go.

We are staying at the Park there, so I am going to give it a shot. Thanks for the information. Is there any part of the lake you would target?

Will you have a boat?

If so then any place in the main basin and around the point can be good, also the next cattail point up from the park.

If you don't have a boat, the channel around the park is littered with rocks and walleyes, jigs or rapala's.

shoot me an email if you want one more spot, nick_domeier77@hotmail.com

Right in front of the channel mouth, casting cranks over the rocks.

Otherwise head down to the ditch, not all the walleyes were fished out.

      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!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
