If you've been to LOTW, I'd appreciate advice on what baits and sizes work best.
Lake Of The Woods Walleye Lures
Here is what we used and pretty much everyone i talked to up there was using this as well.
1/16th oz spoons are by far your best choice. You will most likely be fishing 22 fow and you don't want something too big and heavy. I went out and bought all these 1/8th and 1/4 oz spoons before i got there and when we talked to the guy in the bait shop it made sense to go with the 1/16th.
- green glow stop sign spoon with gold back - green 1/16 oz macho minnow - gold lindy rattle flyer small size - buckshot rattle
The only colors i would use are glow green, glow red and gold. 1/16 oz stop sign in green and gold worked the best by far. Water is stained.
You need fatheads for the spoons using only the head. I throw the tail down the hole. Sometimes when we reeled up a fish it would puke a bunch of tails up so it's like chumming around your shack. Buy some small emeral shiners for the deadsticks and rattle wheels. If you have any other questions feel free to pm me.
I have few jigging raps but I think they are the #3 or #5 size. I was thinking that they would be good for perch but what about walleye?
I have a ton of 1/4 oz Odd Ball jigs in various colors that I use on Green Bay. Hopefully they'll do the trick if all else fails.
Can't wait for the trip. Next to Alaska, this is the biggest adventure I've been waiting for.
