South Shore Fishing Report July 23, 2021

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report Courtesy of The Woods Goods:

“On the south shore, the fish have transitioned to 12-17′ of water, focusing on the areas between Willow Creek and Rocky Point. Best choice is to pull spinners with a bottom bouncer and a night crawler.
Trolling with a crank bait such as a Rapala, deep-diving, will allow you to search for schools of fish on those slower days.

Fishing on any rock reef around Rocky Point, Long Point, 12 mile, etc. has been steady. Use jigs with minnows or leeches on rocks.

The mud bite has been in 30′ or more. Find fish with downriggers or leadcore. The key is to keep moving and use your electronics to stay on schools of fish.”
