I'm heading up there with my wife and two small kids for a week of fishing over the 4th of July.  I know it's not an ideal time for crappies or walleyes, but does anyone have any information (General, or specific) to get me started?  First time fishing the lake, and I heard it's pretty big.


Also, any bait choices that are "must have's" for this lake?


My son wants to try bass, but I'm guessing they will be easier to find on shorelines/weed edges.

Dad would really like to eat a walleye or crappie!  Thank you in advance and if you need to, you can also message me.

I invited my wife up to fish a few hours on the last night of the guys fishing trip. Earlier in the day I marked a bed that looked to have a giant smallmouth on it. We started in a different area and Michelle caught on quick. She caught a 3.5 pound Smallie within 20 minutes. I really didn't fish much as I wanted her to catch the fish. We found some others nearby but they didn't want to bite. Now off to hook the giant. After about 40 minutes she got it. What a giant! I was so happy for her. The light was getting low and it was tough for her to see, so we headed in...all smiles. Congratulations Michelle!

Started looking for smallies and found 2 with fish on them. Caught both of them on a tube. The first one took 30 minutes to catch. Lots of big smallies roaming around but they won't bite. Got a call from my wife who wanted to come up and catch one. I then just marked beds. 2 of the beds definitely had fish on them. Early afternoon fish for buckets and got small fish in the shallows.

In the morning I targeted smallmouth. I found a couple of beds with giants on them. I got one to turn once and tried her for 45 minutes but couldn't catch her. The other bed the female was gone after one try. That wind kicked up making it difficult to sight fish. Ron Schara was fishing the outer edges of the rock reef. He kept moving so I'm guessing he didn't have much luck. I targeted largemouth the rest of the day and picked up 9 in the shallows and on docks.

May 23. Strictly targeted smallies. I went by the beds I saw yesterday and found fish but again could get only 1 to bite. Was fishing with my friend Scott and he was pulling a small crankbait over the beds. He would pause it over the bed, the fish would turn but would not bite. The wind cranked up a bit making it tough to see. There are some giant smallmouth in this lake. Look for your typical spawning structure and they will be there.

Friday May 22. Targeted largemouth in the morning and could only scrap up small fish. In the afternoon I targeted smallies. Found several big fish roaming and a few big ones on beds. All but one wouldn't bite and the one that did was 19". A nice fish. That fish was caught on a Texas rig tube. Fun to catch for sure.

Fished in MN pro-team tour tourney on July 22nd. The smallmouth on Woman lake are worth the patience as they are very nice in size. My partner James and I caught many large 3-4.5lb smallmouth on the main-lake rock edges and isolated deep weed patches en-route to a 25.60 lb. 8 fish limit good for 4th place of 31 teams. We caught most of the smallmouth on Northland tackle dip-stick worms and pro-model spinner baits in light colors. Slow was key and I can't wait to fish this lake when they are really on as it will be a blast with the quality of fish here. Smile

Bass fishing on Woman the past few weekends have been a bit slow. The 4th week boat traffic, or my first 2 times on the lake are the most possible answers to this. Smallmouth have been sluggish, not that there's not very large fish there, i've seen many of them, just can't quite trigger them yet. Largemouth seem to be more dependable with ample slop opportunities on the upper lakes in the chain; topwater frogs and Northland jawbreakers have been productive. I can't wait to fish this lake when the bass are feeding!

Wondering
