Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 10/5/2011

Fishing this last week has been great! Just yesterday, a couple of us caught our limits within a couple hours in the evening. We couldn’t even let the jig hit the bottom before they would bite. Not only did we catch our limit, but we had some whoppers in the mix. We caught a 30 incher and a 29 incher! The fish are biting now that the water is clearing up. The best fishing has been by the washout or West of the gap in 24 ft of water and during the mornings or the evenings. The fish aren’t yet to the river but I am still finding them with big and thick shiners in their mouths and bellies. I have been jigging and using brighter colors like pink, orange, white and gold and hooking them with frozen shiners. The season is changing and it is getting beautiful outside. A friend of mine went across the lake yesterday morning and saw a few thousand Bluebills in the middle of the lake. It was a great sight for those who love birds. I imagine that this winter will provide all of us with some great fishing. The saugers we are catching are getting older and fatter! Good luck fishing to everyone this week!
