Great week of fishing. Anchoring and jigging or drifting with spinners most common method.  A good shallow bite this week in 8-10′ as well as good numbers sliding out deeper.  Limits of walleyes and saugers filled daily with plenty of trophies and photo worthy fish in the mix. Some anglers still heading north fishing the reefs of Stony, Knight Island, and the West Bar in 22-27 feet jigging or 8-12′ drifting. Anglers that stayed near Pine Island heading west towards Zippel Bay fished 23-27. Long Point and Twin Islands held fish in 17-18 drifting or 31-32 jigging. Shallower depths produced a number of big pike this week as well. Hot colors gold, pink, white and chartreuse.

On the Rainy River, anglers jigging in deep pockets for walleye 18-20 feet. Evenings best for walleye. Daytime hours producing numbers of smallmouth and northern pike along shore lines and weed beds. Hot colors pink, neon, gold.
Up at the NW Angle walleyes and saugers filling limits with a few pike as well. Trolling with spinner harnesses tipped with crawlers or leeches the best method. Try 18-24 feet near Norman, Little Oak and Crow Duck Islands or Fort St. Charles Reef. Some fish off Island points near mud flats. On the Ontario side, try Monument Bay.  Walleyes on rocks eating crawfish or in mud eating hatches.  Lodging and guide info at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/Lodging
