Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 5/26/15
Great fishing this week as the weather is warming and the water is clearing from last weeks storm. Anchoring and jigging with a frozen shiner is the go to method. Good numbers of limits with a mix of trophy walleyes in 17-24 feet near Lighthouse Gap and Pine Island. Some anglers headed north fishing the many reefs around Knight and Bridges islands in 17-21′. Heading west, anglers caught in 16-19 off the fields west of Zippel Bay and in 18-30′ off of Long Point and Twin Islands. Those that were pulling spinners had luck in 14-25′ between Pine Island and Zippel Bay. Hot colors gold, white, pink, chartreuse/green.
Up at the NW Angle, mixed bags galore! Walleye, sauger, crappie, pike, smallmouth and more filling limits. Try 18-21 or 26-32 feet hopping between island points and currents. Muskie opener is June 20th in both the MN and Ontario portions of Lake of the Woods!
