Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 1/8/14

Fishing has been pretty consistent this last week.
Most houses are pulling their limits with a lot of nice 17-19 inchers. We have shacks from 26 FOW to 31 FOW.
The classic Lake of The Woods colors of pink and gold have been working with a live minnow at the end of it.

We are looking forward to the change of weather this weekend and our fingers are crossed for another really HOT BITE!

ATTENTION: 2 man sleeper has opened up for the end of January. Call to reserve quickly!

DATES: Thursday, 1/23 – Sunday, 1/26.We look forward to having you up at Sweet’s Fishing!

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 12/13/13

The ice season is upon us and fishing is HOT right now. most houses are averaging between 50-150 fish a day. The best depths have been between 22 and 24 feet of water. Your classic LOW gold has been the best color so far.
We have been seeing anywhere between 9.5 to 12 inches of ice were our house are. Spots are filling fast so don’t wait to book your trip! Look forward to seeing you at Sweet’s Fishing this winter to enjoy some of the best hard water fishing around.

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 6/29/2012

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 Report 6/5/2012

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!

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!

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 9/14/2011

Fishing has been pretty consistent in the last week despite the wind! The wind is making some of the water muddy but that hasn’t stopped us. We have been using downriggers and jigging. Fishing in 26-32 feet of water using a Chartreuse Gold Firefighter has been most successful for us. Shad Raps, Glass Raps, Tail Dancers, and Flicker Shads #5-7 have been working great as well. Those are all great bait and have been pulling in fish after fish! This Monday we anchored in a few spots between 26-32 feet of water and limited out by noon! We were using frozen shiners and every fish we pulled up had a belly full of shiners, overflowing from their mouth! The walleyes are schooling up tight right now and chasing shiners to the river. Good luck and happy fishing!
