Lake of the Woods MN Fishing Report – 10-28-15

Great fishing continues on the big lake with a jig and a emerald shiner the go to presentation. Gold with chartreuse or orange and bubble gum the hot colors.  Stinger hook helpful for light biters. Big numbers of fish north of the Lighthouse Gap in 21-25′.  Anglers also finding walleyes in front of Morris Point, Zippel Bay, and near Twin Islands.  Evening hours showing results in shallower water in gaps, Zippel Rock and Long Point area.

On the Rainy River, the strong run of walleyes has not yet happened.  There are some fish being caught but not in big numbers.  Mornings and evenings are best!  Colder weather should help bite. Try 16-18 feet jigging or drifting during windier days. Orange, and gold mixed with bright color the ticket tipped with minnow.  Sturgeon fishing good.  Some walleye anglers hooking into sturgeon.  Catch and release season for lake sturgeon in effect.

Up at the NW Angle, hot walleye action in a range of depth 15-26 feet jigging near Oak Island, Rabbit Ears, Hay Island and NW Point east of Garden Island. On the Ontario side, areas with current adjacent to deep holes best. Walleye and crappie bite excellent.  Lodging, guides and charter boats are available at
