With the combination of great weather and hungry fish, anglers fishing on Lake of the Woods this past week went home happy. The fish may have gotten tired of jumping into the boat, but that has not stopped fishermen from limiting out. The sandy shorelines in all areas of the lake have keep producing great walleye. Over the past week, fish started biting on crawlers and leeches more than minnows.

The south shore produced some good "eaters" this past weekend. Anglers fished by Twin Islands off of Long Point in 6 to 20 feet of water. Drifting and using hammered-gold spinners, most of the fish caught were within the 13 to 16 in. range but a few 23+ inch fish were released.

Down rigging made its debut on the three-mile reef this past weekend. Fishermen down-rigging used salmon and bright orange colored worm harnesses throughout the day and towards dusk switched to darker colors. They too caught fish within the slot limit.

Over by Pine Island in 5 to 20 feet of water, anglers continue to catch good-sized fish, with an occasional trophy walleye. Hammered gold spinners have not let guides down, but some tried a new perch colored spinner and had great success!

Anglers at the Northwest Angle caught fish while jigging and slow trolling. Using chartreuse and gold spinners and worm harnesses fishermen at the Northwest Angle were fishing off reefs and transitions in 10 to 35 feet of water. A few anglers caught and released four, five, and six pounds walleyes east of Garden Island.

Weather remains perfect for this time of year, mid 70's with slight breeze and mid 50's during the evening. The water temperature was warming up over the past week as well. It peeked at 70 degrees but settled at 65 degrees by the weekend. The weather looks great for the upcoming week with a slight chance of rain during the weekend, however forecasts have been predicating rain for the past three weekends and keep missing it. For all you wanting to catch fish or catch a great tan, now is the time to visit Lake of the Woods! We hope to see you soon

My brother-in-law was up there on the Ontario side w/some friends last week and they limited out. He said they had to work a little b/c the fish were starting to move into their summer pattern, but they were there.

You bet the summer pattern is upon us. Keep in mind that we had ice off 2 weeks sooner than normal & we had alot of warm weather this spring so the time that you are used to getting fish is already gone. I'm normally killing the monster eyes all the way to the 4th of July.
They are not up like they would have been earlier & how they will later when the feeding binge starts before winter.
I'd tell you to go deeper with live bait for eyes or go for a different species for a month until the lakes turn over.Then get back after them eyes.
The pike action is due to pick up & so should the bass. We like to go top water baits for muskie,northerns.The bass get their share of battles in too.
Good luck everyone & take a kid fishing. please
