7/11/16 Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort, NW Angle Lake of the Woods
The Bug hatch is over and it is time to go south instead of north. The depth to be fishing has been from 22-30 feet. Little Traverse has been producing and the rock reefs are loading up good. The water temperature is at 70 degrees. There have been numerous launches up north from the south shore by Garden Island.
Muskies have been found in both the weeds and rock this week, shallow rocks have seemed best. Flag Island Resort entered a boat in the Wiley Point Musky Bowl and it went great. We finished 9th, nice job Forrest and Jonathan.
The walleye bite still seems to be in the transitional period due to continuous weather fronts which has slowed the progress. We have found fish in 6-30 feet of water. The edges of reefs and the deep water in front of the reefs have been producing but, no real pattern. We have seen some very nice fish being caught, 29 was the biggest this week and anything from 24-28 has not been a rarity. Frozen emerald shiners on a 3/8 oz. yellow and orange jig has seemed to be the hot choice. Crawlers and Leeches have also been working well on spinners.
Until next week, good luck fishing!
