Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Always on the move, we are out 7 plus miles past Pine Island

January 22, 2017 at 10:20 AM

Always on the move, we are out 7 plus miles past Pine Island and continue the path North.  March weather in January is somewhat strange.  We started out the week with clear sunny days and the best bite of the season happening.  The last few days have been cloud covered with rain and fog, the bite remains good but not as strong as earlier in the week.  Anglers are catching many fish in the slot as well as trophies to release.  Mixed bags of Walleye and Sauger are being brought home, and, as always while you are here a fresh Walleye dinner is the best way to do it!

While Minnesotans are known for their fishing and 10,000 lakes, it is Border View Lodge on Lake of the Woods who is home of the Walleye Master!  We know the need to be fishing is not always a Minnesota thing, the past few weeks we have had many different guests representing many different states and countries.  It is truly the greatest parts of being in this business, we have the best customers on earth!  Our Professional Guides put in the work so you don’t have to.

Fishing action is mostly coming from the bottom and electronics continue to be a great advantage.  Those anglers who continually work their baits to get fish to come up generally always end up with a hook set.  Many fishermen and women are switching to small presentations and or plain hooks.  Although it seems, what works in the morning may not work in the afternoon and vice versa.  Always plan ahead for what to put on your line next.

The forecast is looking to move us back into freezing temperatures this week.  We are excited for that, we have lost most of the snow on the ice and are ready to get back to winters norm.
