Lake of the Woods, MN (April 8th, 2023)

Even though plenty of good ice still exist out on the big water of the lake, and some ice anglers are still getting out ice fishing, roads and trails are not being monitored. So please make your safety a priority.  This time of year, however, the attention swings away from the walleye out on the lake. Monster northern pike becomes the target. The longer days of spring are telling the pike to gear up for the spawn. In other words … time to put on the feed bags.

Tried and true method for finding these beauties? Start in 5 feet of water and work your way out. Live sucker rigged on a quick strike has been the ticket. I have read that using a “fatty” hotdog is also working. The walleye and sauger season extends through April 14 and the pike season never closes. Perch, eelpout, tullibees and crappies are also in season.

Mark your calendar May 13th is the 2023 walleye opener. Most anglers in the “know” are betting and predicting that there will be a good bounty of walleye in the river on the opener. We look forward to helping you enjoy this tremendous time of the year. Trophy season is here. You certainly don’t want to miss out on all the action.

We are running a spring sale on our nightly cabin rate – in addition we are offering a 3-night special on our cabins at the Resort and our rooms at the Walleye Inn – if you purchase 2-nights, you will get the 3rd night FREE! Starting right now and running until May 12th, 2023. Don’t just sit around and watch the ice melt. Give us a call and book your trophy season trip today. 

In addition, we do offer online booking for those who wish to do so. We are a simple call or “click” away from getting you set up and fishing with us on beautiful Lake of The Woods.
