5.31.16 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, nw Angle, Lake of the Woods

Wow,  what a week we had with bug hatches, rain and temperature changes but Mother Nature couldn't stop the fish from biting! In Minnesota, the fish are on the move, venturing out to the mud and reefs away from the larger islands. We are seeing a lot of people having their best success moving in shallower this past week, jigging in that 10-20 foot range. We are also seeing a lot of fish being caught in 20-26 feet pulling spinners and crawler harnesses and a few getting out there and pulling some crank baits. Gold, pink and orange are always a go to color for jigging on Lake of the Woods and seemed to be the best colors again this week. Gold, smaller spinners on crawler harnesses will be a go to color and set up for all the Minnesota guides through out the summer months.

In Canada, jigging is holding strong on points and reefs in 12-24 feet of water adjacent to deep water. Lots of nice eaters and picture fish being caught this past week. 1/4 and 3/8 ounce jigs have been the ticket with gold, pink and orange  being the most productive colors. Shiners and fatheads seem to be the preferred bait for those fishing Canadian waters.

I think I caught a good one! Lindy Arens caught this beautiful 29 inch walleye yesterday using a gold jig tipped with a minnow in 25 feet of water.jpg
