Hello Russ<BR>I have fished Woman for about 20 years and guided on the lake for the last three years I have found June to be a vary good time for walleyes and northerns thy should be going vary well on live bait I prefer shiner minnows on a lindy type snell or jig and minnow combination a good depth to start is around 14ft. moving shallower or deeper from there the fish will be on the rock and sand structure There is an afull lot of structure on woman and can be intimidating I believe your resort is in hunnters bay and that bay has some broductive humps and a large rock bar at the mouth of the bay that will produce fish Explore the lake it is vary beutifull and expariemnt with structure as you come on to it.Sounds like you will have quit an armada so you should be able to divide and conquer. Good luck injoy your vacation and keep your hooks sharp lure wet and line tight.<BR> Dan<BR> Lake State Taxidermy & Guide

I have fished Woman Lake. It is a great Largemouth Bass lake. Quite a few Smallmouth as well. I placed 4th in a bass tournament out there last summer. BIG fish. Also good for walleye, muskie, pike.<BR><P>------------------<BR>Adam Johnson<BR> <A HREF="http://www.adamjohnsonfishing.com" TARGET=_blank>www.adamjohnsonfishing.com</A>

I was raised on millacs lake,starting with cane poles to the steel rod era, Itwas always fun but not very table worth, AH!!!! rapela,a boat,but still cane poles and steel rods, more food but still close to shore, when the fish moved,so did we,to the hay fields!! AH!! alum boat,motor,nice rods reels, life was grand. we learned to move when the fish did, field work by day,fish by night, I thought i was hooked before,this did it,4-5 foot rollers, a coffee can to bail with,life is more beautiful. Ilearned that lake as i grew,I guided for certain co.s after earning what I called my badges. Times have changed, its time to meet new people and new ways.Thats what its all about. Nothing wrong with a new lake and adollar bet with the son in laws. at least I would like an edge over them,any more help would be helpful I would like to take ther dollar!! thanks all

I have fished Woman for about 25 years and June can be an excellent month. Some of the other posts have suggested trying the various rock piles around the lake. This is a great place to start especially for walleyes, smallmouth bass (there are some lunkers in Woman), perch and pike. Depending on how the weather goes this spring, early June could be perfect for slab crappies. This is a greatly overlooked species on Woman. Get yourself some crappie minnows and use a plain hook below a light bobber in about 2-3 feet of water near new weed growth. Lantern Bay is a great spot to start. The lake is going through a cycle the past couple of years where the northern pike population is pretty small. We've been catching tons of 'hammer handles', but I'm sure the bigger ones are around somewhere. Good luck and have a great time. While you're up there, be sure to treat the family to a boat ride over to see the homes on the 'Gold Coast'.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.

      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA

      Lake is connected to two others with zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Loon Lake in Otter Tail County. East Loon Lake is between and connected to East Spirit Lake and Sybil Lake, both of which were confirmed as having zebra mussels in 2016.  A lake user contacted the DNR after finding a single adult zebra mussel in East Loon Lake, which DNR specialists confirmed through photos and the specimen itself. No additional zebra mussels were found during a follow-up survey. “It’s helpful that an alert individual contacted us when they suspected they’d found a zebra mussel,” DNR assistant invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “Because they kept the zebra mussel, we were able to confirm the species identification.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim

      class of 70 here, and the park across the river  is Land of Memories if I remember correctly...
