Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

We have spent almost all of last week on the South Shore of Big Traverse

The water temperature in the river is getting just below 60.  The daylight hours are getting shorter and we are cooling down. There are still large schools of Walleye and Shiner Minnows just outside the Lighthouse Gap.


We have spent almost all of last week on the South Shore of Big Traverse.  Depths from 24-31 feet and picking a location based on the wind has been the key.  Gold Strobe Jigs from Tom’s Tackle seem to be the preferred weapon, tipped with a minnow they are almost irresistible to the Walleye.    


With temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s for the week ahead we see a forecast of some possible rain early in the week and a sunny weekend starting as early as Wednesday.  With a full moon on Thursday and clear weather we are wondering what the Shiners will do next.


Big applause for Terry Anderson, finding a positive way to show his support and make awareness for a worthy cause.
