Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Anglers have been having great success

January 08, 2017 at 10:53 AM

This week brought some of the consistencies we were looking for.  The temperatures have mostly been below zero with the coldest being -37, the barometer has definitely been more stable this past week. The week ahead shows some changing weather, hopefully nothing too drastic so we can keep the current hot bite.

Anglers have been having great success, many nice keepers and some big ones mixed in.  The numbers of large Sauger caught this year has been incredible.  Also, caught this week was a near record breaker Tullibee at 5lb 7oz.   

We are 3.5 miles from Pine Island in 31 feet of water and there is 19-20 inches of ice.

The forecast shows we may get above zero today and part of tomorrow, then back to the single digits below.  There is a possible chance of snow the next couple of days.  With over a foot of snow already on the lake we do not need any more at this time, but as Mother Nature always proves we will take what we get and like it.

It has been another week of standard go to Lake of the Woods colors, gold, glow red, and something that rattles is best to have on your line.  Those who have been actively fishing and using electronics are catching more fish.
