Weather is starting to cool down & walleyes moving into the river
Weather has started to cool this week. The forecast is high’s in the 60’s and lows in the 30’s and 40’s compared to the 70’s and 50’s we had last week.  Water temperature is currently at a warm 65 degrees for this time of year but we should start to see that dip quickly in the next week.
Anglers have been finding some real nice quality size walleyes between 15”-25” using gold and orange jigs or spinners tipped with a shiner minnow. Knight island has been a good area between 25’-31’ as well as just outside Pine Island, Graceton Beach and Zippel Bay in 20’-25’.

Shiners are running the river
Shiners are running the river and more and more walleyes are moving in daily.  A good morning and evening bite has been found using the same technique and bait as on the lake in 16’-18’ of water.  Areas around Wheeler’s Point, Wabanica Church and the Baudette Airport have produced some decent walleyes.

What a Birthday! Dan treated his girlfriend Stephine to her first experience on Lake of the Woods for her birthday. What a trip!

We caught lots of 15 – 19 inch walleye and Sauger with Captain Troy who really went above and beyond and worked his butt off to make it a memorable birthday for her!!! Thanks again to the Sportsman staff you guys always go above and beyond see you in January.
