  1. Hello everyone! It has been a great year of fishing so far and many beautiful fish are being caught everyday. In Minnesota working rock reefs and points in the morning and evening hours and then moving to deeper areas off of structure during mid day has been best. Gravel bars, humps and deep mud areas have all been producing fish as well. The Best depth has been 13-20 feet in the mornings and evenings and 20-30 during mid day. The best tactic has been using a jigging rod with a lindy flyer, buckshot, rippin rap, charmer or flutter spoon tipped with a minnow head or tail. Live minnows under a bobber have worked as well. Over on the Canadian side the Crappie bite has been good in all north and east spots. A tungsten jig with a plastic and waxy has been the best combo. 30 feet for the crappies and 25 or deeper for the walleyes has been the best. For the walleyes a weasel, lindy flyer or charmer has been the best. There is a lot of hard packed snow on the lake and it is suggested to have scrapers for snowmobiles, many snowmobiles were overheating last week. Over night we got a few inches of snow which should help the situation. We'd love to see you soon! Until next week, good luck fishing!

  2. Fishing Report, Victoria BC March 21, 2016 Ucluelet BC Fishing Report We have mostly been fishing salmon when we can get out. The winter weather is often a little harsher in Ucluelet than Victoria, especially since much of the water fished isn’t quite as protected. On the days we can get out the Chinook fishing has been very good and we are not running very far to set our lines. Most Chinook are ranging in the 8-15lb range and are coming on small Silver Horde 3 inch or Coyote spoons. Green and Blue are classic colors and are consistent. Glow and UV needlefish hutchies about 20 feet from the bottom are also working. Halibut We haven’t had a chance to fish halibut because of the weather and also it is a little early in Ucluelet for consistent fishing. There are always a few taken during spring months so it always worth a try. Generally be late April/May we see more halibut show up. This time of year Victoria is a better spot for Halibut. Victoria BC Fishing Report Salmon and Halibut fishing's been consistently productive through March with a recent influx of 10lb+ chinooks (kings) following the bait to the banks. We expect these mature Salmon to remain in the area and continue to grow amongst the feeders we've been fishing through the winter. Constance bank has been the primary producer, fishing AP Needlefish and Silver Horde Coho Killer spoons in shades of green, alongside purple haze needlefish hootchies. Keep the gear tight to the floor as you fish the South side of the bank from 120 to 160 feet. Halibut from 15- 60 lbs are being taken from Oak Bay right around to Albert Head. At this time of the season fish Mackerel, salmon bellies, and octopus when looking for the barn door. For things to do while in Victoria check out Victoria is also a great place for night life and makes a nice option on your fishing trip. Thanks, Sam Vandervalk Salmon Eye Fishing Charters
  3. Memorial Weekend Fishing Report! Up at the NW Angle, we have been having exceptionally good weather which has contributed to great fishing. Temperatures in the upper 70's, light wind and no cold fronts coming through. Our first bugs hatched this weekend which also helped play a part. Our water temperature is now about 50 degrees. On the Ontario side, you could pick a point anywhere and catch fish. One group caught and released 77 fish the first day and 78 fish the second day in the SAME spot!. Their largest was a 24" walleye with most in the 18"-20" range. Another group who regularly fish the NW Angle over Memorial Weekend, said this was the best fishing they've seen at this time of the year. Both the east and west side of Falcon Island were just awesome. Crappies still haven't started spawning so were more scattered. 25 feet was the magic number and 1/4 ounce jigs seemed to be the ticket. While the deer are still back in the woods having their fawns, we were fortunate to see a mama bear swimming while carrying her two cubs on her back! Until next week, good fishing!Dan SchmidtSunset Lodge Manager & Guide
  4. Fished this afternoon with a group of fisherman, around a dozen lake trout landed in 3-4 hours of fishing. Most fish today were in the 4-8# range today. Glow tubes were the bait of choice. Several other strike were missed and one break off. Only seen 1 other group fishing about 10 miles down the lake, a great day.
