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

A mix of jigging with a minnow or shiner and slow drifting with spinners tipped with a minnow has been working the best. Gold, white and silver have been popular colors.  We are starting to see some anglers try out worms and leeches more this week and having some good luck, 8’-14’ and 18’-26’ have been good depths in the sand.  Water temp has decreased 6 degrees this week, currently sitting at 63.

A jig and minnow continues to produce walleyes on most wind-driven shorelines and points. Better areas this week have been the east and west shorelines of Walker Bay in 15 to 25 feet, West Goose Flats and Stoney Point in 7 to 15 feet, Trader’s Bay in 8 to 12 feet, and back side of Pine Point in 6 to 10 feet. Bass action has been strong, but muskie reports have started out slow.

Minnesota Fishing Reports:

Walleye fishing has been outstanding this past week on Mille Lacs.  Although anglers must catch and release all walleyes, if you want to go bend the rod and have a great opportunity to catch big walleyes, Mille Lacs should be on your list!

The best fishing has been out on the mud flats in 24-30 feet of water.  A Lindy Rig and leech has been the best for us, but you can literally catch them on all presentations right now.  Some options include spinner rigs, slip bobber, and trolling crankbaits. If the wind is blowing or at times when the sun is low, slip bobbers and leeches on the rock reefs in 5-12 feet of water will provide some awesome action.  

Smallmouth bass are also biting like crazy!  Rock/sand transition have been really good, and depending on the weather, the fish will be in 2-15 feet of water.  Casting tubes, twitch baits, Texas Rigs, and other methods will but fish in the boat.

Wisconsin Fishing Report:                                                                     

The walleye action has been good. Fishing in the evening using jigs tipped with larger minnows was producing the best bite. Crappie action has been excellent. Fishermen are reporting some nice-sized catches. They’ve been hitting on a variety of baits, including minnows and waxies. Trout fishermen have been catching their limits using worms and spinners. Yellow and black have been the hot colors. Anglers have been having some success catching pike with artificial and live baits. They’ve been running 20 to 35 inches.
