Here’s your latest fishing report from the Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau. A lot of walleyes caught this week on the south shore of Lake of the Woods. Charter boats and guides are doing a nice job of finding good schools of eater walleyes as well as the slots and trophies. At times, eaters might be in a different location vs the big walleyes.
Walleyes are being caught in 14 – 36′ of water. The two main patterns are crawler harnesses and crankbaits. Best spinner colors are hammered gold, pink, glow white, glow red or orange. Shiny or brighter colors are good starts for crankbaits. It is important to get cranks down to the fish. In deeper water, downriggers, lead core line, snap weights and a 4-5 ounce bottom bouncer will all do the trick.
Fall fishing is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to book your fishing adventure. Ask about our Fall Specials on charter fishing and lodging. Also, check back next week for another fishing report. We look forward to welcoming you!
