Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

LakeofthewoodsMN

A cold front moved in which made walleyes a bit more lethargic for a bit so anglers are having to work every fish with nice fish being caught. Resorts primarily fishing 24-32'. Long Point area fishing a little deeper and Rocky Point area finding good keepers near reefs. The shallow morning/evening bite continues to put some walleyes in buckets. Ice roads are maintained everyday by resorts so if issues arise they can be dealt with quickly. Some days jigging working best and others the dead stick or bobber is the better line.  A rattle on jigging line helps coax fish in to bite. Electronics helpful. Typical LOW colors of gold, pink, and other glow colors working best. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension very likely.   Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on LOW through March 31. 

 

Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.

 

The NW Angle has great ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing is very good.Walleyes in 18-21' with saugers and perch in 25-28'. The trend of jigging with a rattle calling in fish for dead stick much like south shore. Bright and gold rippin raps working well.  Anglers catching slab crappies in holes of 28-32' in Ontario waters. Once you catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed often.  A complete list of lodging, ice fishing packages and sleeper houses are available at www.fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/71-lake-of-the-woods-fishing-reports-hunting//Lodging.

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
