Lake of the Woods South Shore & Rainy River
Bring enough Bait!
Fishing continues to be hot, even as the weather fluctuates. The water temp has dropped to about 51 degrees, which has helped make the fish hungry! Guests and guides continue to jig with minnows and shiners. Any bright colored jig has been successful, such as gold, pink and orange. Water level is up and current is moving quick so heavier jigs of an ounce in size are best if you are planning on fishing in the river or bays. This time of year, the fish can be found in a wide range of depths, from 18 ft to 28 ft of water. There are a variety fishing spots that have been producing many walleyes, such as Four Mile Bay, 2 miles past Pine Island, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach and even up by Knight and Bridges Islands. Pro tip of the week – bring enough bait for those hungry fish or take a guide!

Hungry Walleyes
It has been a good bite this week. Water temps are in the lower 50’s and upper 40’s. Jig and minnow has been the hot approach to landing a nice stringer of walleyes. Gold, pink, orange and glow in the dark have been good colors. Points and shorelines in 12’-25’ have been good spots. Crappie fishing continues to be hot and we don’t expect that to slow anytime soon. Usually the cooler it gets, the better it gets. 20’-32’ holes with structure using a jig and minnow works well. Muskies also active. Try some trolling in bays with a mix of rocks and weeds casting using heavy duty rods and reels with line up to 100 lb test, topwater baits, spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Lake of the Woods is home to thousands of bays and an abundantmuskie population.Few More Weeks of Fall Fishing
