Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

LakeofthewoodsMN

Fishing reports last week, good days and OK days. Some schools aggressive and attack the jig, some window watchers following jig through water column, and some just crusing through. Electronics are big right now. Most anglers graphing fish all day. Most resorts are out in 27-33' and starting to make the push shallower. Reefs to the west continue to put hungry fish in the eater pail. Rattle spoons working well most days but some days a smaller quieter presentation is needed. Pike roaming shallows and setting up for an awesome March.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 4+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake LOW through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike open all year.

 

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

 

The NW Angle continues to put good fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in 19-24'. Early and late bite has been fantastic but the afternoon bite shouldn't be taken lightly.  In Ontario waters, crappies in  holes of 28-32' off of points. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  A complete list of lodging, ice fishing packages and sleeper houses are available through March at www.fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/71-lake-of-the-woods-fishing-reports-hunting//Lodging.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
