Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!
There has been great Walleye action right outside the Lighthouse Gap this past week

The MTT wrapped up another successful year! We finally had some rain, 3 inches in one day was not preferred, but we needed it. Overall this past week was cooler and a sure sign fall is coming. The leaves are starting to turn, with some already a bright yellow. Or as any angler would say it, chartreuse. The large Walleye are eating well and putting on weight, this past week we have caught many large fish some 27 inches long and in the 10-pound range. That is not your typical 27-inch weight of a Walleye on Lake of the Woods.
There has been great Walleye action right outside the Lighthouse Gap this past week. The Rainy River is also getting more Walleye coming in. Our Guides have still been fishing all parts of the lake, most days have been spent a few miles out of the gap and only going further due to wind and weather. Anchor and a jig with a Shiner minnow has been the trick. Pink and gold have been the hot colors, the Tom’s Tackle Strobe Jigs definitely give anglers an advantage.
It appears we will stay cooler this week with possible highs of 70 and lows in the lower 40’s.
