    9.12.16 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report

    Hello folks! Checking back in from Sunset Lodge on beautiful Oak Island here in the Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods. We hope you all had a wonderful week!

    Here in the Angle, fall is beginning to take hold as leaves start turning, temps start falling and the days get shorter. We've had a fantastic week here at Sunset Lodge, fishing has been heating up as the water temps start falling. We've had guests fishing both the Minnesota side of the lake and in Ontario waters. Anglers have been doing well on both sides of the pond and have managed to land good numbers of several different species!

    In Minnesota waters, the water temp is 66 degrees and slowly falling. Anglers have reported good numbers of fish on the south side of Oak Island, Oak Point, down to Rabbit Ears and the east bar of  Little Oak have all been giving up good numbers of walleyes and saugers in 15 to 25 feet. Look for areas that transition from deep mud to rock points and reefs and work a jig and minnow combination or pull crankbaits in these areas to put fish in the box.

    North of the border, in Ontario waters, boats have been fishing the Twin Island area as well as Bishop Bay and the east and west side of Falcon Island. Anglers are finding quality numbers of walleyes in these areas as well as good numbers of jumbo perch mixed in the bunch. 14 to 26 feet have been the best depths, look for offshore sunken islands and offshore rock reefs and work a jig tipped with a minnow to turn fish in these spots. Top color choices are gold, green and orange. Slab crappies have also been turning up in anglers livewells as of late, as the water temps cool these fish begin to start schooling up in shallower waters. Currently, most crappies are being caught in depths of near 30 feet next to deep rocky points and flooded timber. Small jigs with minnows work well for these conditions. If it's muskies you're after, casting large crankbaits, bucktails, and topwaters has been really moving these large predators! We've had several reports of boats seeing and landing multiple fish throughout the last week. One boat even reported boating near 20 muskies in a four day trip!

    The open water season is winding down folks but there's still plenty of time to get in on the fantastic fishing this area has to offer! Be sure to book your next fishing adventure with us here at Sunset Lodge!

    Until next week, take care and we hope to see you soon!
