Lake of the Woods

Rating - Good   

Saturday, Jan 28 2023
Numbers of small walleyes and sauger are being sorted through, along with some eaters, slot fish, and trophy walleyes in 30 to 36 feet of water. Jigging with a small spoon and piece of minnow has been effective and on your second line, use a live minnow set anywhere from 6 inches to 2 feet off of bottom. Eelpout, pike, jumbo perch, tullibees, and a few crappies and sturgeon have been in the mix. Reports have been similar to last week on the Rainy River with a mixed bag of walleyes and sauger being caught during the morning and evening hours. Ice conditions vary on the river with current, so work through a resort or outfitter for safety. At the Northwest Angle, a nice mix of walleye sizes and some big pike are being caught. There have been some nice crappies caught on the Ontario side around the islands.
