The best success reeling in some nice fish this week has been a combination of dead sticking and jigging using plain hooks, the good old Lake of the Wood’s favorite the gold jig and small spoons with some shine to them to really catch the eye of the fish, tipped with a minnow. Typical this time of year, it has been a strong sauger bite 13”-17”, along with some nice walleyes 14”-30”, few perch, eelpout and sturgeon. The afternoon bite has been favoring the morning. Vexilars really help the catch rate. Be sure to bring one along or call ahead to rent. If something isn’t working try a new lure, try jigging, really smacking the bottom instead dead sticking, utilize a vexilar or ask the guides for tips, they are always happy to help. Just a small change can really bring in great results! Varied depths between 22’-32’ have been good outside of Pine Island. The guides are working hard moving houses to stay on the best bite and get you the best experience possible. Currently the ride out to the fish houses is about 25-30 minutes.
