Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

The August Walleye forecast is excellent!

July 30, 2017 at 9:51 AM

Warm weather and light wind this past week produced some excellent angling!  The Walleye Master Guides have been putting a variety of tactics in the water.  The plug fishing has created the most action and many large Walleye.  Bait fishing remained strong when the weather and wind cooperated.  Most of the bait fishing this past week has been drifting with spinners using crawlers or leeches with a frozen Shiner.  Captain Jason put Kyle Chan on a 32 ½ inch monster Walleye this past week!


The August Walleye forecast is excellent!  We are the Walleye Capitol of the World; Lake of the Woods Minnesota is the place to be for Walleye any time of year.  For August, we expect fish to be deeper and in the mud, there are large schools of Walleye in Big and Little Traverse Bays, some of the schools can stretch up to a mile and many of the fish are in the 18-20-inch ranges.


This is a great time to plan the summer wrap up trip with the family.  Fishing is strong and school will come sooner than expected.


Great amounts of sunshine this past week with warm temps of highs in the 80’s.  The week ahead looks like another great one.  We are seeing temps forecasted in the upper 70’s with lows in the upper 50’s overnight.


We still have some great opportunities for August with rate specials arriving on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.
