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 😁

Lets just hope the fish turn on and start biting the first week in March. Because that is when I will be up there. We travel in portables and snowmobiles though. So our odds go up with being mobile and drilling alot of holes.

If telling people the the fishing is horrible and suggesting that they stay home inflences one group, I have a problem with that. That opinion is not welcome.

Glad others are on board as well.

This forum is dedicatd to fishing reports. And everyone is entitled to an opinion. Whether to stay home or someone telling you to stay home. You will just have to take that advice as you will. There is alot of people that fish the lake regularly ang give out the good bad and ugly reports of if they are catching or not. It is up to each individual to decide if they are going to travel there or not.

Good luck to everyone that gets to go up and fish as I am unfortunately working in southern OK and will not get to ice fish anymore this season. frown

Would you rather be lied to about the current success on LOW?

If I was undecided on making a 5-6 hour drive one way and the money was tight enough that this was going to be my only vacation for the year, I would want an honest fishing report. Not one that profits the resorts.

I live an hour away and go to LOW almost every weekend. The "catching" is definately not what keeps me coming back.

Am I going back this weekend? I plan to.

Do I expect to catch enough fish to feed me for the weekend? No.

Do I hope this will be the weekend to remember? Everytime.

The bite can change at any moment but on average it is way down compared to previous years.

In addition... how many big fish does it take to make a weekend? One..

I'll take a weekend of no fish and one big fish anyday... LOW always offers that chance...

That's part of the reason I'm going back. grin

I have lots of other adventures that have nothing to do with fishing or catching while at LOW.

I'm just saying if someone asked me if I wanted to drive an hour to sit in a portable all day with how the catching "has" been, I would pass.

As stated, we are all allowed to have our opinion, and I (hopefully) expect the reports I read on here not to be sugar coated as to how the fishing has been, and I agree with anyone who states that it's tough to justify the cost and time when the season has been this tough. Our group understands that the fishing will be hit or miss, but 1 of the big reasons we travel 7 hours to LOW is because it's a ritual, I get to spend quality time with 1 of my brothers and a great group of friends that I don't have the luxury of seeing that often, I respectfully "agree" with both sides of this issue, and neither are 100% correct, it's good to balance out what works best for YOU, and feel confident in your decision....just my 2 cents.

C'mon guys. 2 full pages of comments now containing all of ONE actual report, under the "report" thread.

Please let it go and let's get back to real reports. Thanks paceman.

I agree.

One keeper last weekend & only a couple throw backs by Arnesens reef. I had a house full of kids so it was tough to move. We still enjoyed the weekend.

I hope to try my luck again this coming weekend. Maybe the change in weather patterns will help.

Good luck guys!

I think everyone should be able to voice their opinions. I think that a lot of resorts do sugar coat reports and I know that overall fishing has been slower this year. Also keep in mind this is a sponsored website that will promote and protect their sponsors.

The two trips I have taken to LOW this year have been good trips, both were fairly early ice. I get to fish a lot around home and catch plenty of fish (I am single with no kids). So going to LOW is more of a vacation for me and a chance to hang out with friends for a few days. I always hope that the fishing is good, but sometimes it isn't. I have been to LOW ice fishing 10 times in the last 7 years. The only trip I have regretted going on was last year when we stayed at a resort with very poor service.

The first trip was out of Sportsman's Sleepers and the fishing wasn't very good. We hardly caught any walleyes, but we caught quite a few saugers. We had a good time ate plenty of fish and brought some home. We also caught some pout and a 38 inch northern.

The second trip was with Lake Road Lodge and the fishing was great. We didn't limit out either day, but we caught 7 fish over 24 inches in two days of fishing. We brought home more than enough fish to eat. We didn't catch 100 pp each day, but I am fine with not worrying about releasing a ton of smaller eyes and saugers in deep water.

If you are going to LOW and have to catch of ton of fish to have a successful trip I suggest that you go during prime times of the year. Go early ice or go later in the year. If you go later in the year go with a resort that will put in the extra work to get on the fish. Some resorts will haul houses up to the reefs if the fish are there to make sure their customers are catching fish while others will stay in the mud because that don’t want put their equipment through the extra wear and tear, deal with the extra cost, or hassle. The other option is to bring your own gear and get away from the crowds and be mobile.

Fish prime times of the year for a better success rate. December....early ice. March.... late ice. It will be your best chance at getting on fish. And you will have less chance of wasting that 5 hours of drive time and money on a resort to bring you out fishing. But your always going to roll the dice when fishing that far away. I go to Lake Winnipeg each year. Never knowing what to expect. But there is nowhere on earth where you have a better chance at getting a trophy walleye. You fish/hunt because you never know what can happen.

Who are you to say an opinion isn't welcome!! Every opinion is welcome even if YOU don't agree with it. I have a fishhouse up at LOW and get up there every chance I can. Fishing is dismal this year compared with other years, but that doesn't influence my fishing there. But some people probably appreciate an honest report, especially if money is tight. If you have the money to make repeated trips, LOW is certainly worth it. Always a chance for a big fish or a memorable bite. Don't slam someone for their opinion. The resorts will be fine either way. They get plenty of business.

Well I geuss it depends if a person comes up to LOW for the fishing or the catching. All my friends come up for the fishing. Everyone has a right to thier opinion. Last weekend we kept 9 fish on Sat. and 6 on Sun., all sauger. Sunday the wife and I only fished for 4 hours. Good luck to all.

Stayed with Sportsman's sleepers Monday thru Wednesday. Not fast and furious, but, we managed 8 slot fish between the wife and I, a 2 person limit of nice eater 'eyes, four nice sauger, 2 'pout(one was 31 inches!), and a bunch of tullibees for the smoker!

Definitley not the hottest bite, but, I was happy!

Im heading to LOW for my first time. I was wondering if anyone could help me out on what kind of equipment I need, like rod and line size also lures and jigs. Will my standard auger be long enough or should I get an extension. Im going for mostly Walleye and may try for some crappies.

Thanks for the help

24" med action rood spooled with 6-8# line. Water is dirty so the fish won't see your string anyway.

No cameras.

Flashers are very useful but not needed.

Standard augers must be getting close in places. I'm not sure??? Probably fine in a portable. I never take my 18" extention off.

No crappie fish unless you are going to the angle.

Hit some of the local bait shops & get something that glows or has gold on it. From there on out, whatever catches your eye for lures.

Good luck!

I barely made it through without an extension last weekend, but my house is blocked up 5 or 6 inches. If you have one I would bring it just in case. I would imagine the ice varies from place to place.

I come up for the fishing. Even if I anticipate it will be slow, it's still worth it. I simply meant that some people have to travel a distance and an honest report might be beneficial to them. Last weekend was slow, but I had the good fortune of enjoying a good friend's company.

Coming in in mid march staying at arnesons is it worth bringing a tip up and throwing out a shiner or sucker for a pike? Or do you typical fish other spot to do that?

Thanks

Red or gold and pink buckshot rattling spoons, lindy flyers, macho minnows in the same colors. The pink charmer is pretty famous out there for a good bite. Hot tamales, stop signs. Pretty much whatever you put down there when the fish are around is going to get bit. Some jigs are better then others and some colors do better then others but i dont think you would have to go nuts buying jigs. I use 8 lb test and use med to med light rods. Good luck its a great fishery.

We are getting ready for our annual trip next weekend... I've read a ton of bad fishing reports. Has it really been slow all around this year? Any weekend in the ice is a good one, but its a big investment and long drive to not catch fish.

Love to hear success stories if anyone has one!

It has been slower than past years, even in Dec when I was up was not a typical Dec. Riverbend has been having some success, but one day to the next who knows. Just got back from Red, we caught fis but slower than our January trip. It can be a tough call with a 5 hr drive. Good luck if you make the trip.

Can't catch any if you don't go right? I can't see canceling an annual trip because fishing isn't as good as last year.

That's about what it amounts to.

A buddy of mine was up on the NW anlge of lake of the woods and killed them. Someone in his group also got a 30 inch 11 pound walleye. If the weather is consistent you will have a good bite. Good luck to you. I will be up first week in March!!!!! Excited to see what happens. last year my good buddy caught a 30 incher that he mounted. Hopefully we can get another!!!!

Fished a couple of hours yesterday by Oak and picked up 12-14 nice walleyes. Action was steady as we missed a bunch. Am going to go out today as fishing here has been steady all year.

I think one thing you have to consider...slow for lake of the woods is still probably much better than most other lakes smile Conditions permitting, I'll be up there the 3rd week of march.

      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.  
      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 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).

      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.
