Heading North and Catching Fish

HEADING NORTH AND CATCHING FISH

This past week we had some high winds accompanied by frigid temperatures.  It will remain colder in the beginning of the week before warming into the 20’s and 30’s by the end of the week.

 We are continuing to see some nice take home fish caught along with some bigger fish.  We are about 18 miles out.

Fresh bait and making noise are still a must!  White, pink or any glow hook remain the favorites.

We still have some availability at the end of February and March so give us a call to book your trip.

Ice Conditions are Good

ICE CONDITIONS ARE GOOD

This past week’s temps were colder than we expected, dipping in to 20 below for most of the week. We are continuing to see big fish caught along with some nice take home fish. We are still making our way North and are 16 miles out. Hot colors this week have been pink and glow white. Keeping one line that rattles active is still a must! If your dead stick goes inactive make sure to put a fresh active minnow on, fresh bait is key on a dead stick line. We start this next week with highs in the 20’s dropping down a bit by the end of the week. We still have some availability at the end of February and March so give us a call to book your trip.

Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

LAKE OF THE WOODS ORIGINAL WEEKLY FISHING REPORT!

We have had guests catch and release some bigger Walleye this past week

We have had guests catch and release some bigger Walleye this past week.  We continue the trek North and are 14 miles past Pine Island.  We have crossed one major pressure ridge and it now looks like we have a large clear sheet of ice ahead us.

Being aggressive while jigging a noise maker is still the best method.  Having a lively minnow on the dead stick pairs your presentation as a team.  Plain hook or something like a Gem-n-Eye on the dead stick is good. Having a Rippin Rap or something else that will make noise is a good pick for lures.

Slightly lower temps are forecasted for the week ahead.  High’s in the 20’s and lows just below zero.

We’ve Been on the Move North

WE'VE BEEN ON THE MOVE NORTH

The temperatures have leveled off this week, resulting in a better bite! We’ve seen increased activity in the bigger walleyes, we have some pics of beautiful 27” plus fish to share this week. Captain Mike even gets on the board with a 29 plus. People are catching some nice eaters too, with enough to have a fish fry and still take some home. It’s been mild with a couple of beautiful sunny days. Today is gray and foggy. We’ve been on the move north. This week we’re out about 12 miles past Pine Island and progressing further north and still in the 32’ of water area. We can’t remember being this far north this early in the season. We can basically say, we are in the middle of the lake. Bring your Lake of the Woods tackle staples (gold and glow) and make sure you have a good noise maker; you will need to be actively jigging. For a dead stick presentation, a plain hook will do. Another mild week ahead with a high of 33 forecasted for Saturday. Lows in the teens and single digits with very low chances of precipitation. The high humidity predicted all week will likely keep the fog going. FISH ON! 1-800-PRO FISH

Mixed Bags Have Been the Common Theme

MIXED BAGS HAVE BEEN THE COMMON THEME

Mixed bags have been the common theme. The bite has been somewhat in spurts, those aggressively working the water column are having more success. We are having a mix of sizes, but are still having a large number of small ones, bring them up slow. We progress North and are past the 10 miles from Pine Island mark. 32 feet area. Bring the normal Lake of the Woods tools in the tackle box, but make certain you have a good one for making noise and can aggressively jig the water column with it. Noise has been a good attractant to the dead stick bite. Mild forecast for the week ahead. Looks like we should have the temps above zero all week. South wind for a few days. Strange for January.
