Fishing this week has been excellent for some and fair for others. The houses who were fair today are excellent tomorrow. Some resorts have moved houses to the reefs. More consistency at reefs, but bigger fish on south end. Houses are in 26-31'. Some walleyes suspended, electronics helpful. Jig in one hole, dead stick the other. Sleepers reporting some walleye action after dark. Saugers on south end with a mixture of sizes. Lots of tulibees with some anglers using wax worms getting half pail full. Northern pike active.

The NW Angle resorts are fishing 30-40 feet of water. Good numbers of eater and slot walleyes and nice saugers. Mixed bag. Crappie fishing has slowed to about a dozen a trip. Gold, glow red and pink hot colors.

Resorts are moving houses out to 6-17 miles off shore this week as deep water mud and reefs are producing the best. Fishing up and down, weather related. Some larger walleyes have been suspended, electronics helpful. Eelpout and tulibee have been reported in the deeper water. Some trophy northerns being caught in 12 - 20 feet. Rock reefs along the Canadian line are heating up. Sub zero temps, -27 earlier in week. 27-32 inches of ice and resorts are letting out all vehicles and wheeled houses. Gold and glow good with stained water. Plain hook or jig on dead stick.

Up at the NW Angle. Fish moving slightly deeper and with cold weather, need to be finessed. Combo of walleyes, sauger, perch, eelpout and tulibee. Much of the fishing around Crowduck and Little Oak Islands. Snowmobile trails on land and lake in good shape. NW Angle is 40 mile ride by ice from south end of lake by snowmobile or via resort ice rigs. More info at www.lakeofthewoodsMN.com.

Most anglers fishing in 30 - 34' of water on south end. Combo of walleyes and saugers. Mixed results with fluctuating weather. Some bigger fish mixed in. More saugers than walleyes. Some walleyes are suspended. Hot colors are gold, red glow and blue glow. Shallow water early and late, 12 - 16', having some success on walleyes. Some resorts have pulled houses north to reefs with primarily walleye action. Lots of tulibees this year.

Up at the NW Angle, most houses north of Garden Island. Little Oak Island, Oak Island and Four Blocks doing well. Good combo of walleyes and saugers. Depth, 22 - 30'. Jigging spoon in one hole, dead stick in other. For more info, contact www.lakeofthewoodsMN.com

Houses are still spread out this week, most in shallow water 14-16 feet, or deep at 26-30 feet. Resorts and guides are working hard to place houses on the fish, and a lot of moving has been happening. Walleye bite has been favorable in the afternoon and evenings, but saugers will bite all day. A dead stick has been the best with plain hooks, gold, and pink/glow all with a live minnow. Jumbo perch, northerns, tulibee and eelpout mixed in. There is now 22-25 inches of ice being fished on, and the Rainy River has 9 inches and up to 14 where trails are marked.

Those on the NW Angle are also fishing deep in 22-30 feet, also with a lot of action in the morning and evening. Houses are still placed south of Oak Island and north and west of Little Oak Island, but the last hour before dark is best in the shallow mud. Walleyes, sauger, jumbo perch.

Still plenty of action on the lake this week. Saugers of all sizes have been biting with a good number of walleyes over 22" in the mix as well. Houses are moving out deeper to 27-30', or a little shallower to 18-22 feet. Electronics have been an advantage and are available to rent at many resorts. Jigging spoons in red/glow, gold, and pink/chartreuse are hot. Ice conditions are good with 16-18" of ice on plowed roads and 12-14" off roads.

NW Angle. Good walleyes still being caught in 22-27' of water with jumbo perch mixed in. Northerns, crappies and whitefish also consistent on outfitter day trips. Snowmobile trail open and ice transportation from south end now available. More info at www.lakeofthewoodsMN.com.

It is COLD out! Below zero temps this past week have been building ice which averages at 12" in most areas, but there are some spots with as little as 6". ATVís and snowmobiles so far but no car traffic. Please use marked resort trails if you will be out on your own. The lake snowmobile trails to Warroad and to the NW Angle have been officially marked.

Houses are on the ice. Saugers and walleyes are biting in 19-25 feet of water. There is plenty of action and fish to bring home to eat, with an occasional trophy, eelpout, northern, jumbo perch, sturgeon and/or tulibee mixed in. Pink and gold have been hot with a plain hook and minnow in dead stick hole.

The NW Angle to the Islands has plowed roads with about 12" of ice. They have a solid 10" as far as Picture Rock on the Canadian side. Houses are out and many fish are caught in 20' south of Oak Island, crappies are biting in 35'.
