FISHING REPORT

1/10/19 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest report from Rocky Point guide, Jase Lamberson.
Fishing has been good around Rocky Point. Mornings have been a bit slower, but the bite picks up mid day until around 4:30pm. We are fishing anywhere from 28-32 ft. of water. A plain red hook with a split shot on a dead stick has been working well. A red or white buckshot on the jigging rod has also been attracting fish. Electronics are key. Some houses are catching fish that are suspended — set dead stick rods 6 to 8 inches off the bottom. Good luck!

Here’s your latest fishing report from Rocky Point guide, Joe Fish. The bite has been good around Rocky Point. We are fishing at Gull Rock Reef, Mark’s Reef, Cooker’s Reef and 12 Mile Reef. We are fishing between 25-29 feet. Red glow, pink, and gold have been the colors of choice. You can’t go wrong jigging a red Lindy Flyer or deadsticking with a plain red hook. Pictured are Maddy and Cami with their catch of the day.

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
The fish are biting well with jigging, using a plain hook and a split shot. Guests are going home with a nice catch of walleye, sauger and even a few perch. Several slot fish between 20-29″ are being caught and released. Most of our houses are sitting in 25-28 feet of water. Red and pink glow spoons have been the hot colors; jigging or a plain hook with split shot head on a dead stick. Electronics have been very helpful as some fish are suspended a few feet off the bottom. Best of luck!

10/8/18 Fishing Report

Fall fishing is on fire! We’ve had excellent reports from Gull Rock Reef, Twin Islands and Stony Point. Water temperatures are hovering in the upper 40’s and a jig with a frozen shiner is all you need. Fish are stacked up from 24-27′ off Twin Islands and Stony Point; and off the edge of Gull Rock Reef in 30-34′. Captain Brett Janicke and his son, Kamren, caught this net full in less than 2 hours of fishing.

7/16/18 Fishing Report

We’ve have some challenging wind the past week, but when it slows down, fishing has been good. Our charter boats are seeing nice eaters and some trophy fish come in the boats. We’re drifting and trolling with spinners and crawlers, with some jigging on the reefs. Don’t be afraid to move around and change up presentation. Fishing will get better each day as we’re at the end of a fish fly hatch. Best of luck out there!

6/12/18 Fishing Report

June fishing has been above average around Rocky Point. Jigging with frozen shiners or minnows is still working well. We’re starting to move into spinner action with crawlers. Gold is a good choice for tackle, with any neon accents. We’re fishing at the reefs in 28-33′ of water and also seeing nice action near Willow Creek and Lambertson’s in 4-10′ of water. Guests are catching a mixed bag of sauger and walleye, with quality keepers, as well as some very nice slot fish. Move around, change up your presentation, and you’ll most likely go home with dinner and some extra. Best of luck!

5/29/18 Fishing Report

Here’s your latest fishing report from Captain Tim “Wingnut” Hill on beautiful Lake of the Woods:

The start of open water fishing around Rocky Point has picked up in the past week. Water temperatures are on the rise. The weather has been insanely nice and the fish are becoming more active. Jigging on the drop offs on reefs and rocky points are doing well with lots of bigger walleye being released every day.

The shoreline bite is picking up as well. We are anywhere from 8′ to 16′ of water with spinners or cranks. Baits of choice are live minnows, leeches and sometimes frozen shiners.

In the past few days, my groups have released at least one walleye over 28 inches, the biggest being 30 1/2″. Best of luck!

3/16/18 Fishing Report
Here’s your latest report from Rocky Point guide Brett Janicke on Lake of the Woods:

There’s plenty of ice in our area and we will be fishing until the end of the month! We’re actively chasing the fish, as they are moving around a lot. Guests are seeing nice action in the flats at 25-27 feet. Pike fishing has been producing big numbers and quality sizes the past week. Guests are reporting a mixed bite with walleye and sauger; the key is to change your setup and try different colors throughout the day. Extensions are still needed for augers.

Be sure to take advantage of our Late Ice Special that starts on 3/19 — 20% off fishing packages, day fishing, and cabin rental.

Pictured is Kamren Janicke showing just how big of an auger is needed to get through the ice!

2/27/18 Fishing Report

February fishing has been quite unpredictable and we’ve had ups and downs as it relates to the bite. This seems to be the same conversation many are having on our side of the lake. But, as the weather stabilizes, we are seeing late mornings and early afternoon hours picking up. The hot colors are gold, hot pink and green. Electronic are extremely helpful. One tip from our guides is to stay close to the bottom, working your lure as much as possible. If your finder marks something up higher, lift the line up to check it out, as a few nicer walleye have been caught near 10 ft. Our houses are seeing the most success at 24-32 ft. Pictured is Hugh West with a 25″ walleye he caught and released 2/27.
*** Just a friendly reminder that fishing licenses expire February 28th — don’t forget to renew them for the 2018-19 season.
