Experience Summer in the Walleye Capital of the World.

The warming waters of early summer show walleye in the shallow waters and sandbars of the South Shore. Anglers at the beginning of the season drift and troll with spinners. As Lake of the Woods continues to warm and clear, the walleyes move deeper towards the mud flats and rock reefs. A mix of bait fishing and controlled depth fishing, more commonly known as “down rigging” are the methods of choice during the summer months. bringing in a wide variety of different sized walleyes and saugers, good eating size, throwbacks and trophy.

While minnows start out the summer, leeches and crawlers are the bait of choice in the later months.
