  1. 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team

  5. 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast. On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase. Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
  6. "We had an excellent stay at your resort! Every single staff member was very kind, friendly and made our stay wonderful!! 

    The attached photos are only 3 hours on the ice!! We caught 25 total fish. We tossed back some small ones too! We also tossed the northern back too. 

    All of the meals were cooked to perfection!

    We can not wait to come back!!!

    Thanks for the wonderful time!!




  7. A nice one caught by Bill Sugden!


  8. Wow! - Caught by Adri Vidovic


  9. 2.13.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! On the Minnesota side, fishing has really picked up this week! The ice is thick and temps are nice, making for a much more pleasurable hard-water experience. Less turbidity has really allowed for more natural colors to work. Using the dead stick is still producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as, multiple over 28! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30ft plus in the mud with Tungstens topped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
  10. 26 inch Walleye caught by Steve Demmer!


  11. 27 inch Northern caught by Nancy Demmer!


  12. 2.6.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! On the Minnesota side, pinks have been producing but it seems as if gold is the hot color of the week for jigging lures and baits. Target depths for walleye have been between 22 and 28 feet. The old school dead stick with a red hook, split shot and a bobber with a full minnow head has been most effective against the lethargic walleye this time of year. In Canada, target depths are between 25 and 33 feet for the crappie bite, most effective lures being small lip-less crank baits as well as small rippin' raps. Weather conditions have stayed relatively stable with a few fronts and about an inch of snow. Be aware: Frozen ruts are still problematic off of groomed trails. Use caution on sleds and ATVs. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team

  15. "Another great trip up to the Northwest Angle! Once again Sunset Lodge on Oak Island took great care of us. I think I actually turned my brother-in-laws into hard core ice fishermen! A great trip with a great friend and great brother-in-laws. Can't wait until next time! (thanks to my sweet wife for taking care of our sweet girls while we were gone!!). " - Steve Hultgren Group
