Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 5/21/18

The last week was beautiful with some rain showers mixed in which was good for our low lake level. The Ontario opener was successful and fishing overall has been good.

In Minnesota, the Walleyes are done spawning and the Crappies should be in shallow bays spawning. The depths we have found to be producing is between 4-10 feet in the mornings and evenings and between 18-26 feet mid day. As far as location we haven’t had to venture far. Rock points and shorelines near large islands and shallow bays have been successful. Specifically, Soldiers Point and Rabbit Ears have been producing. The water temp is between 53-58 degrees.

Over in Ontario, the walleye season opened on Saturday. Some crappies are still spawning while the walleyes seem to be done. We found that the walleyes are starting to move from the shallows back into deeper water between 16 and 23 feet. Fishing on the sides of rock reefs or steep breaks where the bait seems to be pushed together and just off the bottom seems to be the most successful. A 3/8 oz. jig in gold or chartreuse tipped with a frozen shiner proved to be successful. While out jigging for walleyes the chances of pulling up a pike or smallmouth is fairly good which made for some fun days of fishing.

We saw several quality fish over the last week many 26, 27 inchers and a 31 like this 26 caught by Doug on a bobber from shore last night!

Until next week, good luck fishing!

Fishing report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 5/14/18

The Mn fishing opener was a success this past weekend with the staff and a few cabin owners getting out and locating the fish. The late ice out caused the walleyes to be found in shallower water anywhere between 3-10 feet and deeper in the 21-27 foot range. Most of the fish caught were in the slot range and weren't spawning yet but we would expect the spawn to be over by the Canadian opener this weekend. The water temps are varying from 35 degrees on the main lake and up to 50 plus in shallower bays. The fish should be starting to feed heavier once the spawn is over. Several 20 plus inch walleyes were caught right off the dock and in the harbor right out in front of the resort. We found jigging a 3/8 oz jig or spinner trolled at .8 with a minnow to be successful in any color. It was a great start the the 2018 open water season and the first fish fry of the season sure tasted good! We are getting excited to start filling up with guests this weekend!

Until next week, good luck fishing! Guide Jeremy Glessing
