Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Back to the South Shore

March 12, 2017 at 12:08 PM

Back to the South Shore, we are in about 26-28 foot of water off of Pine Island with all the houses.  The snow cover is gone and there are still many pockets of water out on the lake from the thaw and refreeze last week.


We have had some good action this past week.  From one day to the next the action seems to change with more or less bites.  There were some weather issues and we were not able to make it out fishing on Tuesday.  I am not sure if we have had 2 straight days of 40 MPH winds before, but we have now.  There were reports of some small private houses being blown up to 5 miles across the lake.


We have not heard a recent update on the river.  The last word we heard, it is open to Frontier but not sure if it refroze.  There were no landings open yet.


The forecast shows staying below freezing until Thursday.  Then there may be some 40’s with possible rain for the upcoming weekend.
