Report from trip 5/22-5/27

1 post in this topic

As pretty much everyone has said so far the walleyes were cooperative for us. Many boats did struggle as the winds were out of the W, SW, and NW most of the time and pretty strong. The rain kept coming down off and on also. We caught fish all day long with the Tamarac still producing a little faster than the main lake. I think that had to do with the wind factor as not many people on the lake were doing well. I fished almost exclusively plastics on the trip and did very well(Gulp, Powerbait, minnows and leeches both). THe walleye in the river were basically everywhere moving through in waves but we keyed in on the deeper holes and did well. The walleyes on the lake were still anywhere from 5-7 feet but the deeper we got the more sheepshead we got also. Crappies we caught in the river early in the morning on the sharper breaks down to about 8 feet of water. Crappies on the alke were tough but we did manage a few after 8'o'clock in the evening on the north end in shallow, 3-4 FOW below bobbers. All in all a good trip even though the weather was not so nice. Plenty of keeper walleyes boated without problem and many fish 24-25 inches also. ALready looking forward to our next trip up from KC. GOod luck boys, maybe this helps.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      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!
