Daily Fishing Report (Thursday January 21, 2010): Today should be cloudy, highs in the mid 20s and lows in the low 20s. Friday we should expect snow showers at times, highs in the low 30s and lows in the low 20s. Saturday we should expect snow showers possible, highs in the low 30s and lows in the low 20s. Todays fishing report will come from me and our guides. All the action is still taking place, west of Pine Island and north of Graceton/Zipple in 32 36 feet of water. We have been doing well in our houses, which are only accessible by fishing with the Wigwam Resort they are located on west side of Pine Island straight out from the Big Pine. Our houses are currently in 28 to 34 feet of water, and as of this morning 32 to 34 feet has been the magic depth again the fish are deep. The lures showing the greatest success rates are the Gold Disco Ball, the Pink Florescent Stop Sign and Chubby Darter/Rapala Rattling Jig (all can be purchased at the Log Cabin Bait store approximately ¾ of a mile before the Wigwam on 172). You will want to get anything that glows right now, whether it is pink or white. Also give the plain gold jigs/disco balls a try. The ice thickness out there is currently 22-24 inches. Adrians road is open for business trucks are going out everyday. Again, just a little reminder, if you want to fish by the Wigwams houses, you have to come with us. The only types of transportation that will get you out to our houses are track vehicles and snowmobiles no trucks. Dont miss out on this great fishing that were having on Lake of the Woods come visit us today at the Wigwam Resort on Lake of the Woods!
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
