The Lake of the Woods MN walleye opener is this Saturday, May 9th! Same limit as last year includes a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers, with up to 4 of those walleyes.  Anglers can keep walleyes under 19.5″ and one walleye 28 inches and over per day.  Check MN DNR for specifics.

Rainy River sturgeon fishing is still going strong. The keep one season continues through May 7th, then it is catch and release through May 15th. Low water levels are keeping sturgeon in the deeper holes with some current. Use a 2 ounce no roll sinker with a 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook with a gob of crawlers bottom fishing near these deeper pockets.

Northern Pike season is open all year. Anglers have had luck casting with spoons and crankbaits in depths of 3-10 feet. Anglers who are bobber fishing are using dead smelt or a cisco for bait with a treble hook with a spinner. Reports of many keeper pike under 30″ and a handful of trophies over 40″.  Info on lodging, charters and the entire area atwww.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com
