Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 9/21/2011

Fishing continues to be good! We have been running down riggers in 30-32 feet of water about 20 miles out in the middle of nowhere. Once we found a few fish pulling plugs, we threw out the anchor and got ready for the jig-a-thon! Anchored up and jigging, when we found the fish turned out to be the ticket. We were using pink, gold, and white jigs tipped with frozen shiners. Until this weather, we have been catching fish in 24’ feet of water. We are starting to see big schools of shiners on the electronics and there are rumors of shiners seen running up the river. We are supposed to get 40 mph winds tonight and the temperature is supposed to drop a little. As soon as this wind dies down and the water clears up a bit the fishing should be in for a red hot fall bite!

Steve’s Tip of the Week: Hook half a night crawler up to the ball of the jig and then tip your hook with a frozen shiner!
