P1010104 (Small)It is important to get the best tasting fish to prepare your fish properly. Fillet your walleye and skin your fish. Wash your walleye in water then put on a dry paper towel and pat dry.

Dip your walleye filets before you bread it. A product that is excellent you can find in your grocers refrigerator case is called egg beaters (which are egg whites). Pour some egg beaters in a bowl.

The next step is to dip your fish filet into the egg beaters using a fork put it in your breading and push the fish down into the breading to get more of the breading to stick to the filet.

One of the greatest freshwater fisheries in the world is Lake of The Wood. It is so big it would be impossible to cover all areas of the lake in one article. It would take a book. Canadian fishing Lake Of The Woods is different in that most of the lakes 14,000 lie in Canadian waters. This is a bonus to have protection for your average boater in the boat size of 16 to 22 foot. The American side of the LOW is one huge body of water unsheltered by islands.

One great area to fish walleye is the Sioux Narrows Ontario area. From Sioux Narrows there is what I would describe as a long narrow arm portion of LOW. This arm of LOW is .5 to 1 mile wide and runs 15 miles long out to one of the bigger lake areas of LOW whitefish bay. Also as you get out 15 miles you are definitely in a remote wilderness area.

How to catch walleye.

One of the greatest fisheries on the planet is Lake of The Woods. Bordered by Minnesota  on the South, Manitoba , and Ontario on the North. LOW has phenomenal populations of walleye, smallmouth, big northern big, and a world class musky fishery combined into one huge lake. Few waters can boast of this diversity and populations of fish species. LOW approximately 80 miles wide by 80 miles has 14,000 islands. Much of this lake is big and wild (undeveloped).

So where does a new angler to LOW choose to go fishing? Let’s take walleyes species. Walleyes are found literally throughout Low in high populations. Let’s break down the lakes in a few chunks that hold the highest populations. Start on the south shore of LOW on the Minnesota side from Warroad, Mn to Baudette Mn you have a very large portion called Big Traverse bay. You cannot see across it. Big Traverse bay has very high populations of walleye and because commercial netting has been stopped for some years now has only increased the walleye population  and the average fish size in this section of LOW.

Adding Fish Structure / How To catch Bass

Building fish structures for your lake , pond , or river is very possible. Honey hole trees and shrubs are made of material that will not deriorate.  These artificial teees and shrubs give your fish a place to ambush prey and give the prey a cover to hide in.

You add the honey hole trees in water that is 6 feet or deeper. You place the trees in 15 feet or less of water. This is the feeding area of your fish. Place your honey hole trees in groups of 2-3.  The honey hole tree is 6 feet tall by 7 feet wide. You assemble the tree much like you would an artificial Christmas tree. The honey hole shrub which is about half the size of the honey hole tree is designed to promote forage fish. You place the honey hole shrub in 3-4 feet of water typically near a spawning area. The honey hole shrub is 32 inches high by 6 feet wide. The shrub will enable fish to lay eggs and attract algae for feed. The shrub gives the newly hatched forage minnows a place to hide and protect themselves. Check with your state’s DNR to make sure this within your state regulations.

Here in Minnesota spider rigging is not legal unless you use one pole / line per angler. So be sure and check your states regulations before considering this method. A spider rig starts with a slightly curved bar about 6-8 foot in length (where the poles mount) .

On the bar there are 8-12 rod holders that will hold rods and will fish over the front of the boat. You fish with no more then 4-5 rods per fisherman. If two people are fishing they would use at most 8-10 poles. More then 8 poles can get too much to manage. Multiple hits with fish on are very common. Yea, sounds like a lot of fun.  You mount your rods in the rod holders using half the poles being 16 feet and half being 12 feet. Yes these are specialized very long cane pole type.
