Lake of the Woods is one of the few Lakes in Northwestern Ontario that has Largemouth Bass fishing. The population of Largemouth Bass is abundent and growing every year.
Although largemouth bass fishing on Lake of the Woods is not well known in northwestern Ontario, they are found in large number on Lake of the Woods.
Early Spring they are in shallow warm water bays. Recommended artificial baits, eg (soft plastics)
Spring they are found on spawning beds in shallow bays with preferably sandy bottoms. We use soft jerk baits eg. (zoom fluks, horny todds, sinkos)
Summer they are found shoreline under fallen trees and weedy bays and points or reefs. this time of year we use spinner baits, buzz baits, flippen jigs and top water baits like skitter pops or soft jerk baits.
Fall time is when those big hogs seem more abundant. Now to have success you need to fish on the mouth of weedy, shallow bays on reefs and points. Recommended lures eg. (soft plastic baits).
