Lake of the Woods Fishing
Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River
February 19, 2008
The bite remains strong on Lake of the Woods. Houses are being placed anywhere from 5-6 miles off shore, all the way up 25-28 miles off shore. A nice mix of walleye, sauger, and perch can be found in 30-34 feet of water. Some anglers are having luck around the mud flats, while other are sticking to the reefs and doing well also.
The Northwest Angle and Islands area has been a hot spot for walleye and perch, a rattle jig in 24-28 feet of water has been working very well. The reefs around Oak Island and Flag Island have been giving up beautiful limits of fish.
Out by the Clementson area anglers have been finding limits is 22 feet of water. Pink and white jigs and frozen shiners are still working well right off the bottom.
I've stayed at Jeff's Ice-O-Miniums a couple of times and have had very good luck on big walleyes. Nice sleeper houses that he is always moving to keep you on the fish. He can be found here: http://iceominiums.com/
