LAKE OF THE WOODS The walleye bite has been strong on the 8- to 10-foot reefs with nightcrawlers and bottom-bouncers. Other anglers are having success pulling plugs or downrigging in 33 to 35 feet of water. Smallmouth bass are hitting at a good pace in Baudette Bay and the Rainy River. Eating-sized walleyes also are coming from the Rainy, where anglers are jigging in 20 to 23 feet of water. At the Northwest Angle, the reefs near Oak Island continue to produce walleyes for anglers fishing with jigs or bottom bouncer rigs. Anglers fishing Ontario waters have reported catching several muskies exceeding 50 inches, as well.
