Lake of the Woods


Recommended Posts

Fishing at Lake of the Woods has been excellent! The water temps are cooling a bit into the high 60's and the fish are responding well. Walleyes are basically being taken 3 ways, crankbaits, crawler harnesses and jigging with frozen shiners. The jig bite is picking up. Colors, gold, pink and chartreuse. We are noticing some of the fish are starting to move shallower, but the most common depths are 28 - 32 feet. Both deep mud and rock reefs are holding fish. Everywhere from Lighthouse and Morris Point gaps to Zippel Bay and Long Point up to Garden Island fish are present.

Up at the NW angle, walleyes are in transition mode and are being found all over. Sunken islands, steep drops and wind blown shorelines are all producing. The go to lure is a 1/8 ounce jig in white, gold or chartreuse tipped with a minnow. Depths range from 25' - 45'. The muskies are eating well. Lots of fish being boated. Crappie action is picking up as the water cools. Jig and minnow on breaks. Big northerns are being taken by anglers targeting other species. Bass anglers having a "Hay Day".

As the water cools, fishing only gets better at Lake of the Woods. The leaves are just starting to change, sweatshirts are being worn, hunting has started and it is a beautiful time of the year.
