Labor Day Weekend Fishing Report
Reefs, points and gaps with current is where the walleyes are biting. The best reef fishing has been in 28’-30’ of water, points in 26’-30’ and gaps in 20’-30’. Jigging with a minnow has been the technique of bringing in the most walleyes. Fall into some great fall rates Sept 15-Oct 15. Fall is a great time for incredible fishing and beautiful fall scenery.
Muskie & Pike Bite
Fall is an excellent time to fish for muskie and pike. Lake of the Woods is home to some monster muskie and pike that will get your adrenaline pumping! Right now the water is still pretty green from the algae bloom. The best bite is around shallow points using jerk and top water baits. In a few weeks the water is going to clear up and we will want to start looking deeper.
The bite is picking up! 24-28’ of water around structure jigging with a jig and a minnow has been working best. It should just keep getting better and better as the water starts to cool.
Sit back, relax and take a guide
For the most enjoyable relaxing experiences, we suggest taking a guide even for just a day. With nearly one million acres of area to explore, Lake of the Woods can be overwhelming to many. We also believe it is a much nicer experience to really enjoy vacation and leave the hassles to us so your biggest decision for the day is what you want for supper.
Make plans for a fall trip!
Great reduced fall rates run Sept 15-Oct 15 at Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge and Sept 7-Nov 30 at Sportsman’s Lodge Rainy River location.
