How is the staked trail running up north?? Only have sleds and hoping there is enough snow on the lake soon to try and make a run up. How far out is the furthest driveable road from the gap go as of now?

My parents are hammering the big ones this week.  I don't know how deep or what tactic they are using, I only received the photos.  The top one is 30 1/4 inches.

Hey!! It's fun again on the south side of the lake! There are a lot of fish spread out from the south shore to mid lake. Some of the schools have been enormous. Small fish, big fish and in between. Od

Speaking of Border view had to dig a couple old photos up of the crazy bombardier we use to ride out in years ago. Maybe some of the old timers on here might of got to ride in it 😁

not sure how far adrians road goes out now. we were at 9 miles out on Thursday and Friday. fishing was slow by LOTW standards but we still took home 14. a word of caution if you are coming up. follow the cones on the road and pay attention to where it detours. two vehicles fell in a pressure ridge/crack on Friday and from what i was told it was because they drove where it was marked not to. Cones were knocked down from people probably driving too fast and then people end up where they shouldn't.

Just got back from LOW. Before yesterday they had a few inches of crusty snow on the lake. Last night is snowed a couple inches, may seem like more but the drifting makes it seem that way. Coxy is right, Adrians road suffered a big crack down the middle of it for about three miles. Pay attention to the mark cones. Fishing was alright. I was about a mile passed the end of the road. The road is about 10.5 mile out passed pine. Good luck to everyone.

Had moderate expectations for the long weekend with the cold front coming through. Went outta Rocky Point, got half limits both Saturday and Sunday and some really nice jumbo perch. Biggest perch I've seen since Gogebic, Michigan, just under 13 inches. A couple slot walleyes, a pair of pout, and some tullibees. Ate fish for dinner each night. Marked a ton of negative fish that I couldn't coax into biting. Best action was on my smallest buckshot spoons. I'm sure it'll only get better when the weather flips. Had the cleaning shack mostly to myself so I felt pretty good about the weekend. Also glad to have use of a permanent when the wind was ripping Saturday and it was -15 on Sunday. Left Monday morning, truck started (woo hoo!) and read -24, wind chills about twenty degrees colder.

I own a Salem Ice Cabin,just bought it in May and have only had a chance to take it out once this year. I sure do like it. Wondering about inserts for the ice holes. I ordered 4 inch inserts from Coates RV in Hugo, MN and found when using them the 4 inch were too short. I have a friend who bought some 9 inch inserts for me and cut them to 6 1/4 inch, haven't used them yet but think they will work. I also applied a clear sand sealer to the wood on walls in my Ice Cabin...brings out the wood grain and looks nice, sewed some camouflage curtains for it. I love my Ice Cabin and hope to use it more. I am new to this ice fishing, would appreciate any tips or advice you have also on using your Ice Cabin.

Welcome back to another edition of the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman. In this weeks episode the fishing was a bite slower, but were still getting a lot of lookers which leads me to believe, we might have biters pretty soon. Lots of small Sauger, but I personally witnessed the Pink Charmer in prime form tonight just as the snow started to fall. 5 Walleye in 2 hours of fishing this evening, but the guys next door only had 2...lots of lookers though.

We're fishing in 35 feet of water heading to the bowl, but heard through the grapevine that 28' of water has been showing some promise this week. Bring the glow colors for the overcast days, but always have a little gold with you, and when the sun peeks out get that gold on. 1-3" is where you want to be, but reel up to those suspended fish you see...big Walleyes roaming.

Happy Fishing and God Bless!

Welcome back to another edition of the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman. In this episode, the Cropduster and I headed north for a few hours of fishing on Sunday afternoon. Thank you to everyone that has visited us this winter, it's truly because of you that we have this opportunity to try and live a life worth living.

What we found on our journey north was many Saugers and a few large Walleyes hanging out in the deep mud off the rock structures. Many of these active fish were just 1-3 inches off the bottom, and many were regurgitating bugs and had beat up bottom lips. I could only imagine those beat up bottom lips came from digging up the bottom for those bugs. During the evening we move onto the rocks and caught a few smaller Walleyes, but had the best success deep.

I hope everyone enjoys the fishing report and the ministry. We are all servants in one way or another, and I am humble and honored to be yours on Lake of the Woods. Happy Fishing and God Bless.

We will be coming up next week Thursday and I am curious how much snow do you have on the lake? Will we need a snowmobile or will the Jeep be able to get us far enough away from the pack?

Fishing on Crow Lake Nestor Falls, Ontario Canada,yesterday. Heading out to Whitefish Bay LOTW this afternoon. Ice conditions are perfect no slush.

Had a great time fishing yesterday. I made Paul take out all the comforts of home, packed a lunch and coffee. He drilled me a few holes and off he went to find fish on his own. I relaxed in all my comforts and when he finally came to join me for coffee I was distracted and lost a fish. He did catch a fish, but it was all about me yesterday. He will tell the story that by the time he pulled everything out and set me up to fish, the day was over. And that is why he could only catch one fish. Well we are going to give it another chance today. — at Nestor Falls, Ontario Canada. Heading out to Whitefish LOTW.

Heading out to Whitefish Bay LOTW today. No slush, perfect ice fishing conditions. Fished out on Crow Lake yesterday. It is going to a high of 8 today and 28 above F by Saturday.

He drilled me a few holes and off he went to find fish on his own. I relaxed in all my comforts and when he finally came to join me for coffee I was distracted and lost a fish.

was up 2 weekends in a row first trip stayed at zipple and second at bayview needless to say I will never drive 6.5 hours to fish the dead sea again!

I would cancel your trips if you have them planed and get a rental someplace closer to home the fish are not biting up here.

Sorry your trips were so bad Acemac. Fishing has been slower on LOW this year. Does anyone have any better reports, specifically off Adrians road? I'm bring my brother-in-law up on Thursday. He's never been to LOW and I talked up the lake for years, hope the fishing is at least fair.

WOW! Pretty arrogant to tell people not to come up. Just because you don't know how to catch fish up there doesn't mean people shouldn't come up and catch fish. I'm sure the resorts love it when people say junk like that.

Grow up Acemac!

Acemac,

Why would you run 6.5 hours two weeks in a row? Granted fishing is a little off this year compared to prior years, but for most people it is better that most other lakes in the state. I am taking another trip yet this year to LOW. If we catch fish great. If not, the kids still will have a great time spending time with each other as well as us adults. I sure wouldn't cancel based on the chance (likelyhood) that we don't hammer them!

Well said maxpower117. While I agree that fishing as been off this year LOW is still the best hard water in the state. If Acemac is only concerned about bringing home fish, go to the fish market and buy some. As for myself I'm headed up this weekend for 3 days of fishing. Plan on fishing Stoney pt, 16 mile reef, elm pt. on Friday. Gull rock area on Saturday. Don't have a plan for Sunday yet. It's gonna be a blast! I'll catch some fish too!

Went over to LOTW caught quite a few crappies, not any size. Caught a few pike, not bad for 3 hours this afternoon. No slush, lots of ice. It was great to be out fishing, the weather finally warmed up a bit. Going to try Whitefish Bay LOTW tomorrow.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, we should'nt be harassing a guy because of what he feels. I like LOTW too but something is amiss. Shiner run has been dwindling the past few seasons, and you are only fooling yourself if you think fishing has been good this year. Saying LOTW is the best lake in the state is also an opinion. I would say "the best hard water lake in the state" varies with given time frames... I hate to say it but Red lake has been the top lake this year from all the reports of my friends who fish that lake extensively.....and the nice pics they send me!

I totally agree with you. The fishing for a majority of the people this year has been way below par, for LOTW. We have a group with 6 house in all and in different locations on the lake. I would say that one of the houses have someone in it 6 days a week. I also believe the very poor emerald shiner run has something to do with it. Fish usually follow their pray. Also now that the mayfly larva have hatched. I think that has given the fish an alternative food source at this time as well.. I also agree telling people to cancel their trip is a little harsh and a matter of opinion. IMO go have fun spend time with family and friends enjoy your time on the hard water. If you catch fish that's a bonus and will just add to an already fun experience. That's why they call it fishing and not catching..

Nuff said, I totally agree.

The weather is in a warmup pattern, chin up bobber gazers.

It is a HUGE lake and it holds HUGE fish....

You can't catch em if you aren't there.

Went over to the Babblers Friday, fished in 31-34' moved 3 times. really slow. caught about 15 kept 5. Went out on Cyrus Road saturday. 33' caught about 90. Kept 36 to fill out on a take home limit. Tons of little walleyes/saugers. Normal LOW tackle used. Gold/pinks/shiny jigs, bobbers and jigging worked about 50/50. Had a great trip with the gang! Can't wait to get back up there.

      On the south end...  Pike anglers catching fish in back bays. Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are the go to presentations.  The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.    
      The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers looking to keep a sturgeon have through May 7th.  After that catch and release kicks in again.  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 3-5 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the most common setup.  
      Good numbers of fish, all size ranges, being caught.  Sturgeon have been active.
      Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow!
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      On the south end...  Most attention right now is with sturgeon and pike with anglers looking forward to the May 15th walleye opener.  The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.  Backwater areas and back bays are all over LOW and the Rainy River and are where pike are being caught.  Deadbait on a quick strike rig under a bobber, spoons, spinnerbaits and crankbaits are all working.

      On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon fishing is in full swing and fishing is good.  Now through May 7th is the sturgeon harvest season (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 3-5 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops / resorts have rigs and bait available.
      Find a deeper spot or hole in a stretch of the river, anchor up and still fish the bottom.  Your bait sends a scent trail the sturgeon will find!  Some huge sturgeon being caught in excess of 70 inches.

      On the south end...  Lake of the Woods is ice free!  Walleye anglers are looking ahead to the MN Fishing Opener on May 15th.  Based on the big fish in the Rainy River this spring, there is a lot of excitement!
      The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.  Backwater areas and back bays are where pike spawning activity is taking place.  The pike limit is 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  Most practice catch and release with a nice photo on big fish, and there are a lot of big pike being caught.
      On the Rainy River...   The spring walleye season closed with good success.  Despite varying clarity and some spring rains pushing debris into the water, hearty walleye anglers still pulled some very good fish last week.  Now looking toward the walleye opener.  
      Sturgeon fishing this past week was excellent.  Sturgeon of all sizes being caught which bodes well for the health of the fishery which is very strong.  Sturgeon catch and release season through 4/23/21.  Keep season 4/24/21 - 5/7/21, (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season, 7/1/21 - 9/30/21.
      A 4-6 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops / resorts have rigs and bait available.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      On the south end... The lake is still ice covered with big stretches of open water which is expanding daily.  Anglers fishing the lake are fishing in front of the Lighthouse Gap where the Rainy River enters LOW.  Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River during the spring walleye season which lasts through April 14.  The walleye season opens again on May 15th.
      Pike Fishing.  Open water is available in the back bays such as various Four Mile Bay, Bostic Creek, Zippel Bay and backwaters on the Rainy River where pike spawn.  Some nice pike being caught in shallow water areas.  These areas are off of the main lake and perfect for small boats.  The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River.  3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one over 40" allowed.  
      On the Rainy River...   This past week was nothing short of incredible for walleye fishing on the Rainy River.  Large numbers of big walleyes were caught and released.  Many fish 30 - 33+ inches in the mix.  Exactly why anglers love the Rainy River in the spring.  
      Good reports up and down the river including Four Mile Bay.
      A 3/8 - 1/2 ounce jig is working nicely tipped with a minnow or a plastic.  Bright plastics and frozen shiners working best on jigs.  Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success to cover water.  
      Sturgeon fishing continues to be good with good numbers of sturgeon being caught.  Most anglers targeting holes in the river.  Some sturgeon being caught on rolling sand dunes with fish laying in the depressions. Wherever there is food and a bit of slacker water!
      With lower current, a 3 ounce no-roll sinker combined with a sturgeon rig (18" snell of 60 lb test with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook) with a glob of crawlers, frozen emerald shiners or both is the ticket.  Local bait shops have rigs and bait available.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Locals are able to get their boats from the mainland (Angle Inlet) to most areas of the islands.  Looking ahead to open water, there are various ways to travel to the NW Angle this summer without crossing the border.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  There is also the Lake of the Woods Passenger Service (charter boat shuttle to Angle).  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      On the south end... Most of the lake is still ice covered with the exception of large areas adjacent to inflowing water such as the Lighthouse Gap (Rainy River) and Morris Point Gap (Bostic Creek) areas.  Open water is expanding daily.  Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River through April 14.

      On the Rainy River...   River fishing started out strong, slowed down with cold weather and the Big Fork and Little Fork Rivers spilling mud into the Rainy River and now is picking up again.  The water is clearing and water temps are on the rise.
      A 3/8 - 1/2 ounce jig is working nicely tipped with a minnow or a plastic.  Bright plastics and frozen shiners working best on jigs.  Walleyes caught in various depths down to 35 feet.  
      Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success to cover water.  Walleye season is catch and release only on Rainy River and Four Mile Bay through April 14th.
      Sturgeon fishing continues to be good with good numbers of sturgeon being caught.  Sturgeon aren't as affected by dirty water as they feed by scent.  Sturgeon catch and release season through 4/23/21.  Keep season 4/24/21 - 5/7/21, (45-50", or over 75")  Catch and release 5/8/21 - 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.

      Not at all.  I know you were just kidding.  I also stay away from crowds but have had many "close" encounters on the lake.  Many times others swarm all over you if you catch a fish or two.   Once somebody immediately went to the spot my daughter caught a 5# walleye in as we drifted 20 feet away.   Another time somebody actually bumped my boat as I was very slowly drifting.   A third instance somebody snagged my anchor rope and broke their line rather than tell me and ask me to un-snag it (think they know what my answer would have been).

      Casey was in a serious car accident several years ago that took him a while to recover from.  Think that may have been why he got out of guiding.

      Saw plenty of birds in wi. Had a pack of 4 Jake’s and another pack of 5 Jake’s. Both of those are 1 less now. They kept the toms out of the fields. Finally Sunday waited to hear a gobble then started climbing the hill to get to the gobble. Was set up within 50 yds, even could see the hens on the roost after a while. They flew down and went up the hills instead of down where I was. Found out there was a farmers field on top of that hill that I’m sure they went to for the day. The morning before the Tom I was listening too went up the hill after leaving the roost.  Learned a lot and am excited for next year. I also learned within the first hr to never sneak without your gun. Was within 20 yds of a big Tom, but not for long.

      I've seen over 40 boats parked on a small flat on Mille Lacs before.  You can whisper to the boat fishing next to you as long as you aren't running an old loud 2-stroke motor.  Pool 4 in the spring can also be bumper boats and that's even more interesting because there's current.   I'm sure others can comment about how close people come when ice fishing.  The only written law I'm aware of is that you cannot legally fish within 10 feet of another fish house.  If someone is within casting distance of me, that is too close.  That includes recreational boats too.
