Herald Staff Report
Lake of the Woods Open water fishing is pretty much done for the season after the recent blast of cold, wintry weather. Fishing was good until most of the bays and harbors locked up with ice, Lake of the Woods Tourism reported in its weekly update. At last report, good numbers of walleyes and saugers were staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore, Lake of the Woods Tourism said. That bodes well for good ice fishing when the lake freezes.
