Lake of the Woods South Shore Fishing & Outdoor Report

Sportsman’s Lodge



100+ Fish Days!
The walleye line pulling action just doesn’t miss a beat! We have walleyes and saugers practically jumping in the boat, it has been awesome!  This past week our guide boats caught and released more than two hundred walleyes in the slot limit (19.5-28.0 inches, 3-8lb)! INCREDIBLE and that is not all!  Everyone has been eating or leaving with their limit and anglers also enjoyed releasing 50+ more per boat. This summer has been nothing short of outstanding for walleye fishing right from the open date in May and we don’t think we will see any drastic changes in the near future. Don’t believe us? We are putting our money where are mouth is and this summer we have brought back the 100% Walleye Limit Guarantee! We are guaranteeing you will leave or eat your limit of walleyes if you fish on one of our charter boats for two days or better or we will pay you! Don’t miss out, call 800-862-8602 for details and book your trip today!

The Scoop
The best fishing spots have been short jaunt out into 29’-32’ of water just outside of Pine Island. Anchoring or trolling when the wind is light and jigging with 3/8 oz gold, orange or pink jigs tipped with a shiner or chub minnow continues to be the best technique.  Anglers are having some luck with leeches but the minnow is still the best choice.

Fish, Eat & Be Merry
With fishing so good enjoy a meal of your fresh catch on our classic island shore lunch is a must! Take a break from all of the action midday and stop on a nearby island where your guide will prepare your morning catch along with all the fixings. There is nothing better than fresh fish and breathtaking scenery. Ask about our “shore lunch” option when you book your guided trip today. OR Enjoy a your catch fried up after a day out on the lake in the Sandbar or try it in our Riverside Dining Room 5 different ways including broiled lemon pepper, garlic, Cajun and of course our very own famous deep fried breading.
