Lake of the Woods South Shore Ice, Fishing & Trails Report:               by Sportsman's Lodges

Island life is just chugging along!  Great walleye and solid muskie fishing.  Walleyes are snapping as usual.  Jigging and spinners have been catching fish.  Jigging the reefs anywhere from 24’-30’ and spinners anywhere from 12’-20’.  Tipping minnows on jigs continues to out produce any other bait just as crawlers has by far out done anything on spinners.  The muskies are ramping up as summer chugs along.  Many fish in the high 40s to low 50s are being caught every day!  Get up here and get in on the action!

Crankbaits or slow-death rigs with crawlers are producing walleyes on the 9- to 14-foot weedlines or main lake reefs in 17 to 25 feet. Muskie action has improved with bucktails in Sucker, Portage, and Kabekona bays. Look for largemouth in the reeds and weeds of Boy Bay, Portage Bay, and Sucker Bay or smallies on the 17- to 20- foot rocks.

Cass Lake Report: August 2017

Trolling crankbaits during the day in 15 to 20 feet or at night on top of the bars has produced walleyes at Cass Lake, Wolf Lake, Lake Andrusia, and Pike Bay Lake. You’ll find perch in the 6- to 8-foot weeds and bluegills in Allen’s Bay on Cass.

Minnesota Fishing Reports:

Muskies and some big pike are being caught via trolling crankbaits on the north end in 12 to 16 feet. Smallies have been more difficult to catch this week, but small, scented tubes are producing some fish on top of the reefs, down to the 16- to 18-foot rocks.

Wisconsin Fishing Report:                                                                     

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good. Anywhere you have structure you will most likely catch bass in 2 feet to 30 feet of water. In the deeper water in the bay, use suckers. Anglers have been catching walleyes at the head of the bay, Brush Point, and Kakagon Slough on crawlers, leeches, and minnows. During the day look for walleyes in the channel or the drop-offs into the channel trolling crankbaits. Northerns have been caught at the breakwall and along the Ashland shoreline. Trolling for trout and salmon has been very productive from Houghton Point all the way out to the Apostle Islands.

South Dakota Fishing Report: 

Things have slowed down a bit since June but still have some nice quality fish coming out of Waubay.  Buffalo is still putting out good reports on panfish and walleye as well.  Lakes are starting to turn a bit, tis the season.  Morning and evening bites most productive on Waubay, but some guys are having luck with an afternoon bite as well.
