Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

We have been fishing outside the Lighthouse Gap in 27-29 feet of water

September 29, 2013 at 5:59 AM

This past week we had some nice daytime temps which warmed up the water some.  The water temperature in the river is now 64.4. 

We have been fishing outside the Lighthouse Gap in 27-29 feet of water.  It has been really good with many limits and nice large Walleye caught and released.  The big Sturgeon have still been active, with only one day left of the keep season there is not much chance to fill this year’s tag if it has not been filled yet. We are seeing more Walleye action in Four Mile Bay and the river as the temperatures drop we expect to see this get better and better as there are large schools just outside the gap on the lake.

Best approach for the week has been anchored while jigging with a live or frozen Shiner minnow.

The forecast for this week shows the temperatures are going to be dropping with a high by the end of the week to 49 degrees and a low of 35.  That should really get those Shiner minnows running!

Winter dates are filling in, it’s time to make your plan if you don’t already have one!

FISH ON!
