Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | Monday, June 24, 2019
On the south end… Walleye fishing is on fire. Great catches continue both over the mud basin of Big Traverse Bay as well over structure. Most anchored up and jigging with frozen shiners or pulling spinners with crawlers in 25-32′. If jigging slows, move around with spinners. Gold mixed with various colors or bright colors best in the stained waters.
On the Rainy River… Some eater walleyes coming from go to areas such as holes, current breaks and sand riffs. Trolling crankbaits this time of year a good way to locate fish. Smallmouth bass relating to rocks, bridges. Pike in and adjacent to bays and current breaks. Sturgeon season opens July 1st for the catch season.
Up at the NW Angle… Walleye fishing remains excellent. Anglers finding walleyes in transition areas between rocks and mud. Jigging, spinners and casting rocky shorelines with crankbaits all producing walleyes. Smallies in shallow rocks, shallow diving cranks effective. Many fish targeting crayfish thus orange has been good color in addition to traditional gold / mix. Saugers, pike, and perch also in the mix. Muskie anglers showing off big fish.
