7.17.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, nw Angle of low

1 post in this topic

Hello from Sunset Lodge!

This week’s water temps are 68-70 on the main lake and 71-76 in back bays.

Minnesota walleyes are taking crawlers and minnows on spinners around reefs with gold/orange and gold/pink being the most productive in 16-25 ft. Deep and shallow crank-baits are triggering fish in the same areas including reef tops early in the day and just before sunset.

On the Canadian side, jigging reefs continues to fill live wells with walleye and perch, the best results come from jigging the edges of the reef with gold, pink blue and white, tipped with a fathead or shiner.  Reefs surrounded with softer, shallow (20-24ft) bottom will yield walleye and sauger via spinners. 

Besides the occasional musky caught jigging walleye, the more traditional methods like bucktails over weed/rock transition areas are resulting in fish in the net! Spinnerbaits in the weeds will generate opportunities as well. The Algae bloom is minimal and visibility is still good. 

We hope to see you soon!
