Woman lake, My first time there?

Recommended Posts

herefish101

My first time on Woman Lake this coming weekend, what do I need to know? I'll be there for three days and I will find walleyes on my own but if any of you could help me shorten the curve it would be awesome! It will be mine and my wives anniversary and I need to get her a walleye over six inches, which is her PB right now, so as I already stated any help would be great. Thanks!

I'll change my question....

Do the walleyes relate more to the shoreline structure or the midlake humps? I don't want spots, Just a bit of some local knowledge to hopefully shorten the learning curve. Thanks.

I have never fished woman in the summer but right now the water is still cold so a lot of fish will still be shallow I would work shoreline breaks and flats 5-15ft

Fished a lake 2 miles from Woman. Fish were more shallow than normal. Woman is a tough lake to fish at times. Sorry but I can't be much help except to say water temps were 64-68 and all fish seemed awfully shallow.

Good luck,

One thing FYI, Woman is a VERY clear lake.

Was up on Woman the 8th and 9th, best bite for me came trolling rapalas along shoreline structure in 6-10 foot depths after sunset. Did better when we trolled over rocky locations. Water temps were 58 degrees then...

We did well, caught a lot of our walleyes midday in clear water, just slowly contour trolling the shoreline breaks with lindy rigs, water temps were in the high sixties to low seventies. There was also a mayfly hatch the day we showed up. Most people we talked to told us to drive up to Leach if we wanted walleyes, we had two fish fries and took our limit home. I now love this lake.

Also the best resort I've ever had the pleasure to stay at, Woman Lake Lodge, Jeff and Lori are awesome, and so are their doughnuts.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
