Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. Fishing remains excellent with a nice mix of eaters, slots and trophy walleyes. Two great ways to catch walleyes this time of year, crawler harnesses and crankbaits. Walleyes are hanging out on the deep mud in 30 – 36′ of water. Cover water by drifting or trolling. Crawler harnesses (snelled spinners) in hammered gold, pink, glow or orange with a 1-2 ounce weight.
The second technique for the fishing report is trolling crankbaits through various schools of walleyes over the deep mud. Get lures down with lead core line, a 4 ounce bottom bouncer, snap weights, 3 way rig or downriggers. Switch colors often but some starters, pink uv firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger, and gold.
