  1. Hello from Sunset Lodge! In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island. Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green. In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points. A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well. Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches. Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. Until next week! Sunset Lodge
  2. Hello from the NW Angle! Water temperatures are currently hovering in the mid 70’s. Minnesota walleye action has been really good with bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Gold spinners with hints of chartreuse, orange or just hammered gold are favored. Walleye and occasional large pike can be had trolling deep diving crank baits around shoreline breaks and reefs. Canadian walleye fishing continues to excite anglers via jigs and minnows. Pink or white jigs tipped with shiners will put fish in the boat. Night crawlers on spinners will produce fish in the mud deeper than 25 feet. Musky action has been all over the place, fish are still being found in sandy, weedy bays, rock points and reefs. The nearing new moon should have fish on the prowl this week. Congratulations to our neighbor and local guide, Forrest Huset and his dad Sean on their victory at the Lake of the Woods Musky Bowl this weekend! Another neighbor, Jerry Klema, landed a 29 1/2 inch trophy walleye last week! Until next week, Sunset Lodge
  3. Hello from Sunset Lodge! In Minnesota, walleye have been found using green, gold and orange spinners in 24-30 ft. Jigging in the morning on tops of the reef has been the most productive. In Ontario, walleye fishing has been very good jigging on top of reefs as well, with gold and orange being the hot colors. Musky fishing has been heating up as muskies are moving to the reefs and windblown points. Multiple muskies have been caught over 50 inches within the last week. Happy Independence Day! Sunset Lodge
  4. Hello from Sunset Lodge! In Minnesota, Walleye fishing has been good in 18-28ft pulling hammered gold and orange lindy rigs. Jigging has also been very productive on top of the reefs before the Walleye move out deeper onto the flats. Key areas have been Dawson Island, Little Oak and Shady Island. In Ontario, Walleye have been found deeper in 22-30ft. A gold or chartreuse jig with a fathead or frozen shiner have been producing well around Deepwater bay, West side of Falcon and Gardner Island. Many fish over 24 inches including a few Northern Pike and Muskie. Good luck and keep your lines wet! Sunset Lodge
  5. Hello, from Sunset Lodge! Fishing has picked up significantly this week. In Minnesota, high winds limited fishing areas but many of our guests were able to find the walleyes stacked up on the humps pulling spinners. Gold and green crawler harnesses are working the best. In Canada, working a slower presentation such as a lift and drag technique has been most effective. Limits of walleye are being caught using gold and chartreus colors in 18-22 ft. Key areas have been Deepwater Bay, Monkey Rocks and the west side of Falcon Island. Smallmouth fishing has been heating up as well, using a jig and plastic on the rocks. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  6. In Minnesota, walleye fishing has been fantastic! Using a jig and minnow or a bobber rig, walleye can be had anywhere from 3-15 feet in the evening and 18-25 during the day. Pink and white, chartreuse or blue and white jigs have been the most productive. Canadian walleye are being found a little deeper at 22-26 feet. Many nice fish were caught this last week, multiple 26-28 inch and a very nice 30 incher. A jig and frozen shiner is the go to, however a freshly dead fathead works equally as well. Surface water temps are in the high 50’s at sunrise, reaching mid to upper 60’s by evening after this sunny Memorial day weekend!
  7. Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing has picked up significantly this week. Minnesota fishermen can be selective of fish kept, as they have had no problem filling Walleye limits. 17-19 feet will produce late in the day with 21-25 feet being most productive away from structure during mid day. Pink, white and gold have been most productive all around. Glow or UV have also had success during cloudy conditions if charged often. Canada continues to give up Crappies between 25 and 32ft, still with a light setup and electronics. Many tulibee and the ocassional whitefish are being caught while crappie fishing. Walleye in Canada on points and reefs remain easy to catch. We still have plenty of ice on the Minnesota and Canadian side and trails are still being groomed. March is a great time for a last minute trip to the Angle! Sunset Lodge
  8. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! The Minnesota side is still kicking out fish between 18-25 feet. Fish are hitting jigging spoons when active; specifically White, Gold or U.V. When activity levels are slow, try the Deadstick 8-10 inches from the bottom. We had numerous Giant Pike this week, all caught on Walleye spoons. Canadian Walleye fishing is incredible. Fish are slamming aggressive presentations like rip’n raps and spoons tipped with Shiners. Crappie action varies day to day. An ultra-light set up is guaranteed to catch more Crappies than a walleye rod. Trails are still being manicured and are in overall great condition. The warmer weather is exposing ice chunks off of the snowmobile trail and creating heaves, one near Knight Island deserves attention. Travel cautiously off of marked trails. We have 3+ feet of ice. See you soon! Sunset Lodge
  9. Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water. Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits. Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere! Until next week, Sunset Lodge
  10. Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota fishing has been really good this past week with good numbers of slot fish and a 30” walleye. We have been on the move with our houses and it is paying off. Multiple houses producing an all day sauger bite with plenty of walleye mixed in. 20-24 feet is where we have found the most action. Glow and white/gold spoons have been the prefered color as of late. Our snowmobile and marked trails are in great condition. Thirty inches of ice is common with 24 in higher current areas. Up in Canada, limits of crappies are still being had in 30’ and deeper water. Ultra light tackle and rod set up can make the difference some days, while other days crappies can be caught on Rip’n Raps and Jigging spoons. Walleye action remains strong on reefs and points in 24-28 feet. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  11. Hello from the NW Angle! In Minnesota, limits of walleye and sauger are being caught between 22 and 25 feet. Presentation changes daily from deadstick to jigging but not both. Pink and white, or gold and chartreuse have had many slot fish and lost a few BIG ones. The Canadian side of the lake has seen a lot of northern action, with the biggest closing in on 48.” Walleye are still plentiful off of reefs and points. Crappie action has been sporatic with the changing weather fronts. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  12. Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye continue to be caught in 18-21 feet at the bottom of shoreline breaks. Rattle baits and jigging spoons call fish to the holes, while a plain hook and minnow seals the deal. Perch and sauger are consistently found between 25 and 28 feet, walleye can be found there too for a good mid-day bite. The hottest bite this week was within an hour of sundown. Up in Canada, walleye fishing remains relatively easy, get yourself to a spot that looks like walleye structure and start reeling them in! Canadian crappies are still filling freezers at 28-32 feet, with small UV colored rip’n raps or a small jig and plastic. Depth finders have proven to be a necessity with finding a pattern in the fish, whether it be rising or falling jigging action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge
  13. 1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge
  14. Hello from the NW Angle! The bite remains consistent on the Minnesota side where we are fishing between 26 and 28 feet, yielding good walleye, sauger and jumbo perch. The dead stick will provide action early and throughout the day. Shallower depths are worth fishing early and late for quality walleye, a majority of which are in the slot. Up in Canada, big crappies are filling buckets via minnows, plastics and rip’n raps as well as, very light setups in 28-32 feet. Walleye fishing is outstanding near structure, either points or reefs. jig’n raps, buck shots or spoons have been productive. See you soon! Sunset Lodge
  15. Hello from Sunset Lodge! We have had another strong week of Walleye and Sauger fishing up in the Northwest Angle with fish being caught all throughout the day! Fish in the 24-30” class were common with pails full of Walleye over 16” coming in as well. The best approach methods have varied through out the day, from a dead stick to an actively jigged buckshot or rip’n rap. Glow red, gold and any UV colors are preferred just off structure at the bottom of the break lines between 24 and 30ft. Many football sized giant perch were seen this week, too. On the Ontario side, Walleye have been active all day long. Certain reefs have been giving up fish consistently to anything that is actively presented. Crappie fishing has been best early and late in the day with 14” fish common in 28’ or deeper. See you soon! Sunset Lodge
