  1. Hello everyone! Checking in from Sunset lodge on beautiful Oak Island here in the Northwest Angle. I hope everyone had a fantastic week!

    Here on Oak Island, this week the story was days of sun and heat, severe storms, and fishing that was definitely heating up! Our water temperature is at 76 degrees.
     
    Stateside, anglers are targeting and finding walleyes down by Little Oak Island. The offshore reefs and humps in 25 to 30 feet have been the best. Drifting with spinners and bottom bouncers dragging night crawlers has been the most productive tactic. Reports of decent catches are also coming in from Garden, Shady, and Four Blocks Islands. Fishing the reefs, points and deep mud in these areas has been productive. 

    Up on the Canadian side, Deepwater Bay has been the area of choice for several of our guests in the last week. Walleyes have been the target species, but anglers have been pleasantly surprised with the mixed bag of fish they have been encountering. Walleyes, Saugers, Perch and Crappies have all made it into several boats live wells. Northern Pike have also been hooked in these areas as well, and some have been real hogs! We've had a couple of reports of Pike up near that 40" mark! Poplar Island has been popular here in Deepwater, drifting and trolling spinners and crawlers in 18 to 30 feet has been most productive. Tug Channel has also shown some promise this week, specifically the southern end. Working offshore reefs in 15 to 25 feet with jigs and minnows have been best. As for all of you Musky junkies out there, the fishing for these large predators keeps getting hotter! Anglers are targeting smaller Islands with rocky reefs, shallow weedy shorelines near deep water, and rock reefs out in the open water. All of these areas have been holding fish, and fisherman have definitely been reaping the rewards! Numerous fish have been raised and brought close to the boat, and several have gotten a mouth full of hooks and their photo taken for their troubles! We've had several fish landed right in that 40" to 45" range, and a few larger specimens that have stretched the tape to 50" and above! Wow! So for all of you Musky faithful out there, grab your stick, sharpen your hooks, and dial in your figure "8" cuz the fish are ready to eat!

    Until next time, from all of us here at Sunset Lodge, have a fantastic week! Make sure to book a stay with us soon, and we'll see ya on the water!
