If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses.

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers all over the lake being caught with many different tactics.  Key depths between 18-30' of water. Jig and a frozen shiner or leech and pulling spinners effective.  As typical in June, a nice crankbait bite right now pulling crankbaits in 5-11 feet along shorelines. Some of this is set up as shiners spawn in sand and other bait shallow.  Both reefs and mud holding fish.  Jumbo perch and pike mixed in with walleyes all over the lake.

Walleyes in the Rainy River with a good morning bite.  Some anglers trolling cranks and covering water to find fish.  Multi-species bag often the result.  Smallmouth bass in the river continue to be active.  Bays, feeder streams, rock and weed edges good starts.  Sturgeon fishing opens again July 1st.

Up at the NW Angle, walleye fishing excellent. Little Oak, Oak, Flag Island flats, Four Blocks on the MN side good bets.  Walleyes and saugers being caught in a variety of spots. 18-26' a consistent depth with some shallow fish in the mix as well.  Harnesses with a bottom bouncers turning on with a jig and minnow still a staple for many.  Colors should include gold, pink, glow colors and bright colors. Smallmouth bass continue to be active.  Many monster pike caught this past week over 45" by walleye anglers.  Muskie season opens Saturday June 17!
