Wigwam Resort Guests Are Experiencing the Best Fishing of Their Lives on Lake of the Woods

posted on 08/27/2009
Good morning to all!

Welcome to another edition of the Wigwam Fisherman’s Blog. Yesterday I had the pleasure of fishing with Tom Briggs and four gentlemen with the Intervet Group from Northfield, MN and I experienced some of the best fishing EVER!!!! Tom put us on the fish right away and it didn’t stop all day! On our first drift, I personally had caught 4 Walleyes and put them all in the box…it was absolutely amazing. Our guests that were fishing with us had to concur. I heard at least 4 of the gentlemen in the group of 15 that had called their wives and stated “this was the best day of fishing that I have ever had”…I love it when I hear that!

Yesterday I also had the opportunity to participate in my first ever shore lunch with the Wigwam Resort, and it truly was an experience of a lifetime. The Wigwam Resort puts on a great shore lunch that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. The fish was awesome, the famous Wigwam shore lunch potatoes were awesome, and the beans were just as equally awesome. The entire Intervet Group had fun and the compliments were greatly appreciated by all…thank you.

I will bring this up every day until we are there, but just a reminder to all of you that want to stay with us this winter during ice fishing season…we are starting to fill up. If you want your places reserved at the Wigwam Resort, book now, or forever hold your peace. We are looking forward to a record breaking ice fishing season, for the amount of fish that will be caught on Lake of the Woods, don’t miss out on all the fun. Remember, every night during the winter is like a Saturday night. Be apart of all the excitement, only at the World Famous Wigwam Resort on Lake of the Woods!

Once again, before I go into the fishing report, I just wanted to take a second and go over all the different species of fish that we have caught this year in Lake of the Woods. I know that we are known to be the Walleye Capitol of the World, here in Baudette, MN on Lake of the Woods, but we have many different species of fish that are being caught out of Lake of the Woods that should get there day in the lime light. We have caught Monster Lake Trout, Musky, Northern Pike, Perch, Sauger, Small Mouth Bass, Sturgeon and Walleye this summer. So if you’re looking to be put on some different species of fish this summer other than Walleye, don’t hesitate to give us a call at the World Famous Wigwam Resort on Lake of the Woods and let us, PUT YOU ON THE FISH!!!!

Daily Fishing Report: Today we will have scattered thunderstorms…a few storms may be severe, high 73F with winds W at 10 to 15 mph…there will be a 40% chance of rain. Tonight we will see variable clouds with thunderstorms, especially early, once again, a few storms may be severe, low 53F with winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph…there will be another 40% chance of rain. Tomorrow we will have a shower or two around the area in the morning, and then partly cloudy in the afternoon, high near 65F with winds N at 5 to 10 mph…there will be a 30% chance of rain. Tomorrow night should be cloudy with a few showers; low near 45F with winds N at 5 to 10 mph…there will be a 30% chance of rain. Today’s fishing report will come from our guides (Tom Briggs, Billy “The Sniper” Kloos and Kevin Olmstead) and guests. Tom, Billy, Kevin and I all went up north yesterday and “all” put our guests on the fish! We went to the southwest side of Little Oak Island and we were all limited out by 11 am. On our first drift, I personally had caught 4 nice Walleyes. We were using hammered gold spinners, salmon/gold spinners and orange spinners with crawlers. We all were able to catch some slot fish that had to go back and we even caught a couple large Northern Pike over 38 inches…what an awesome day! Knights and Bridges are starting to produce some nice fish…we just had some guests that were filming a TV show (James Holst with IDOfishing.com) and they headed up there and fished the rocks…slow troll/drift…orange spinners and hammered gold spinners with crawlers…they had some great success. They caught a number of nice fish…the biggest was 25 inches. As I always say about the rocks…get ready to donate some tackle, because you will get caught up at least a few times fishing those areas. This afternoon I also was informed by Jake Magness and Doug “The Surgeon” Hagen that the fish were biting out in Light House Gap again. They were anchored and jigging with green and silver jigs and frozen shiners as bait. They said that they had gone through their one bag of Shiners in about 30 minutes…the bite was that good! Don’t miss out on this great fishing that we’re having on Lake of the Woods…come visit us today at the Wigwam Resort on Lake of the Woods!

My shout out today will go to the entire Intervet Group…I just want to personally thank each and every one of you for being such great guests. I had a blast taking care of you guys/gal and I look forward to all of your returns throughout this year and next. I hope that all your expectations were exceeded while staying with us at the Wigwam Resort and I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous fishing that we were all blessed to take part in. On behalf of the entire ownership and staff at the Wigwam Resort, I wanted to thank each and every one of you once again…THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!

Happy Fishing to all, and to all a good day!
