March trip to Lake of the Woods

Recommended Posts

tigger101754

I know this has been asked before, so bear with me...My buddy and I are heading up there the 1st weekend of March. Where and who is the best place to go with? There are so many nice looking resorts. How does a person choose?

We have tried Devils Lake in N. Dakota...Nothing! We have tried Mille Lacs...Nothing...So this is why I ask you guys out there...Who do ya trust when the chips are down? Who runs the best resort and gives you the best bang for your dollar...Thanks for all the input in advance..Roger

Tigger: I'm not going to tell you that the resort I stay at is the very best, with all of the resorts in the area as you mentioned this would be real tough to do. All I can relay is my expeirance with RiverBend. I have been going there for the past six years. We go in Dec, Jan, Feb and March. We have always done well with them, enjoyed thier service, food and beverage. I feel they are definitley reasonable in their pricing. I am headed back next Monday, and then late Feb and March 17-19. just my thoughts, hope this helps. By the way you can pick up their phone number on the resort locator link on the main page if interested. Good luck and hang on. Bill

This'll be me and buddy's 8th trip (we're leaving this Sunday) to the Sportsman's Lodge. It's west and north of Baudette on the river about a half mile or so from the lake. We've never stayed anywhere else so I can't compare but they've always been first rate. The package plan is outstanding, the fish houses are great and we're always treated well.

By march there'll be plenty of ice on the river so they load ya up right from lodge - no fuss no muss.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
