Fishing has been excellent over the past week. We have been catching fish a number of different ways. Anchor and a jig is still putting a ton of fish in the boat. Pulling rigs up north on the Islands, especially Little Oak right now is working well. Guys are even starting to pull downriggers and putting fish in the boat. If you stay on the South end of the lake, you should try and find about 30-34 FOW and if you head North to the islands find 13-17 FOW. This week has been an excellent week for big fish with multiple slot fish being caught, highlights are two 29 inchers and one 30 incher so far this week. The fishing is HOT and the weather is great, get up to the Walleye capital of the World for some “Lights out” fishing with Steve Sweet!
Lake of the Woods fishing has been excellent so far, with limits in the boat every trip so far. We have also seen a lot of really nice slot fish coming out of the lake. We have been fishing straight out of Lighthouse Gap, Pine Island, and up north by Knights. All of these spots are producing fish for us, here are the tactics we are using to put them in the boat.
- Anchor and jigging in 28-30 feet (Steve’s favorite jig is a pink and white combo)
- Flatlining plugs in 7-15 FOW (Firetiger and Gold have been the best colors)
- Pulling spinners in 7-15 FOW (Gold spinners with a nighcrawler)
Don’t waste any more time…head up to the Walleye capital of the world and fish with one of the most experienced guides on the lake – Steve Sweet. Enjoy the cabin right on the lake and book a charter trip with Steve to kick back and enjoy catching that Minnesota Gold!
