Here’s your latest fishing report from Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau for the South Shore of Lake of the Woods. The deep summer “Dog Days” patterns for walleyes are in full swing producing excellent fishing. As a rule, the big walleyes are hanging out on the deep mud in 30 – 34′ of water.
Two main techniques, drifting or trolling spinners with crawlers or leeches at about 1.0 – 1.25 MPH. Hammered gold, hammered silver and glow white are good starting colors. The second technique is trolling crankbaits through various schools of walleyes over the deep mud. Switch colors often but some starters, pink uv firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger, and gold. Some walleyes are still being caught shallow based on forage opportunities. Different schools taking advantage of current conditions in different areas. Watch electronics and go fishing!
