Another BTS Fishing Trip

Bud invited his Bosch BTS drivers for another day of fishing. We went out of Ballard’s Resort and again had Tim as our guide. We left the dock shortly after eight and when we saw that there were white-caps on Four-Mile-Bay we knew that it would be an interesting ride across the Lake. With most of our group getting regular chances to fish this end (south) of the Lake on the regular basis, it was the plan from the start to go across the Lake and fish something different. It was over an hour to our first stop, a little south and east of Little Oak Island. We anchored up in about twenty-six feet of water and jigged with frozen shiners and leaches. Fishing was steady and we caught about thirty fish in the morning, half walleyes; half saugers. About noon we went to a nice small beach that was wind protected on the south shore of Oak Island for a great shore lunch of sauger, fried potatoes, beans, bread and butter. After lunch we needed only ten fish for our walleye limits and that didn’t take too long. We released several saugers and smaller walleyes and two slot walleyes of 23″ & 24″. The wind eased up some in the afternoon and it was a nice ride back. Another great, beautiful day on the Lake of the Woods!
