Lake Of The Woods Fishing Report | 6.10.2019

Recommended Posts

LakeofthewoodsMN

On the south end...  Summer limits of walleyes and saugers with mixed in big fish.  Plenty of fish to eat and take home.  Most walleyes coming from 24-32'.  Various techniques working as water warms including anchored up and jigging, drifting with spinners and pulling crankbaits.  Resorts finding fish all over lake.  From Pine Island to Knight and Bridges Islands, north of Garden Island, Zippel Bay, and Long Point.  Some walleyes found shallow when wind is right or bait prevalent.  Gold, pink, glow and orange good starting points.    

On the Rainy River...  River offering mixed bag, nice options.  Walleyes and saugers being caught in go to areas such as holes, current breaks and sand riffs.  Trolling shad raps a good technique to find fish.  Smallmouth bass relating to rocks, bridges.  Pike in and adjacent to bays and current breaks with spinner baits a good choice, especially around weeds.  Sturgeon season opens July 1st for the catch season again.

Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing strong on both sides of the border.  Anglers in MN finding walleyes in 18-26' with various shallow bites popping up.  Spinners with minnow or crawler heating up.  In Ontario, walleyes in 22 - 26' with most anglers jigging with minnows.  Parakeet, pink and white and orange strong colors.  Lot of fish.  Saugers, pike, perch and bass also in the mix.  Muskies open June 15th in both MN and LOW Ontario.

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
