Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

The bite is on and good numbers of walleyes and saugers being boated daily. Lots of big fish. Spinners with crawlers and pulling crankbaits in the mud in 28-31 ft doing very well. The area between Long Point and a few miles south of Garden Island holding lots of fish. Gold, glow and bright colors continue to be solid choices. Plugs that are darker in color seem to be producing on cloudy days while brighter colors do better on sunny days. Pike all over the lake, perch mixed in with walleyes and smallmouth bite in rocky areas of the lake.
 
Anglers in the Rainy River finding some walleyes with morning/evening. Fall fishing on the Rainy River coming soon as shiners will push back up the river. Trolling cranks or pulling spinners producing the best now. Smallmouth bass in good numbers along shoreline rock, bridge embankments and feeder streams. Sturgeon anglers finding good success.
 
Up at the NW Angle, excellent fishing continues with no signs of slowing down. In Minnesota, the bite has been on fire with trolling. Blue, chrome, clown or UV pink has worked great in 26-30’. Nice bite in 13-22 feet of water as well. Four Blocks to Garden Island still holding lots of different sized fish. Big pike trolling cranks and spoons. Up in Canada, jigging walleyes has been outstanding as is pulling spinners in 18-28’ using pink, orange, black and chartreuse along the reefs. Muskies have been chomping on bucktails and hard baits, shallow weeds and rocks in both MN and Ontario.

    • heard from 2 folks who went the other day, their boat not good the other good!!  go figure..  same charter company...
    • Nice fish.  Heading out to Lake Michigan in 2-3 weeks.  Haven't decided exactly where yet.
    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time.
