  1. 9.18.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the Northwest Angle! This week we experienced temps in the low 60’s and a lot of wind. Surface water temps have dropped to the upper 50’s making it to the low 60’s by evening. Fall foliage is in effect and fishing is phenomenal! Minnesota walleyes can be located rather quickly with a Rapala or good electronics, then jigged up with pink/white or gold, tipped with a shiner or fathead anywhere from 17-24ft, shallower in the evening. Canadian walleyes are being caught by crappie anglers. Many crappies are being found schooled
  2. Hello from the NW Angle! Water temps are currently in the low 60’s. Walleye in Minnesota are firing on all methods; bottom bouncing, jigging, or trolling with cranks. Current areas between the islands have been hot! The best depths are deeper early and mid day, migrating to 10’ or less in the evening. Fish coming in have been FULL of shiners. Canada has been giving up more and more Crappies everyday, some at 16” plus. Jigging with the lightest set up possible has been the most effective method, a few have even been caught on crank bai
  3. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! It finally feels like fall up in the Northwest Angle. Crank baits have been producing larger walleyes out of Canada, while bottom bouncing the deeper waters between reefs is yielding fish as well as a jig and minnow set up. Crappie season is in full swing, being found at 30ft plus off of points with a light set up and a minnow. Muskie action continues to provoke anglers. Many are experiencing multiple fish days and seeing big fish move on a variety of baits be it blades, top water or minnow baits. The approaching full moon should ensure gr
  4. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! Fishing Canadian waters has produced numbers of fish including crappies! Crappies have been found near underwater trees and timber. The walleye bite has been great with limits coming in, as well as many larger fish over 24 inches. Areas producing the best include Massacre Island, Tug Channel, Skeet Island and Monkey Rocks, fishing on reefs and underwater humps from 24-30 feet of water. Stateside, walleye fishing has been excellent from Oak to Little Oak Island and Dawson Island pulling spinners in the mud or jigging reefs in 26-30 feet. Lo
  5. Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s. Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome. Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs. Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay.

  6. Hello from the NW Angle! The weather this past week has been absolutely fabulous. Stateside, the full moon influence has been making fishing relatively easy. Nice walleye and perch are filling live wells when pulling gold, orange or chartreuse spinners in 13-15’, 20-22’ and 26-3-ft. Large pike are being caught and released trolling crank baits and spoons. Up in Canada, jigging points and around reefs where fish have been located has been extremely productive. Many large fish this weekend coming on pink, orange, black or chartreuse in 18-26 ft. Spinners will put fish on hooks as well!
  7. We have had a great week of fishing! We lucked out with the weather having only a few sprinkles. Up in Canada, jigging walleyes early morning and late afternoon has been the best, with orange, gold and yellow being the most productive, as has pulling spinners in 20-28’ using orange along the reefs. In Minnesota, the bite has been on fire with trolling. Blue, chrome, clown or UV pink has worked great in 26-30’. White, orange or chrome spinners have been doing very well from Four Blocks to Garden Island. Muskies have been very active with any fish being seen after bucktails and hard baits. Our

  10. 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.
  11. Hello from Sunset Lodge!Here in Minnesota, Walleyes are being landed out of 24-28’ West of Four Blocks. Pulling crawlers in the mud off of structure with Gold and Orange has been successful. Water temps have warmed up nicely to 70 degrees on the main lake and mid to high 70's in back bays in the afternoon resulting in Muskies on the hook. Best results have been on smaller baits such as spinners (Slop-master Bucher) and Buck tails.On the Canadian side, Walleyes have been seen on main lake humps and reefs.

  13. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!! Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet. Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islan
  14. Hello from the NW Angle! On the Minnesota side, water temperatures have dropped in the past few days due to the strong winds in the area, making boat control a challenge. Wind-blown shorelines have plenty of active fish between 4 and 14ft. Productive presentations include Rapalas and spinner rigs. The Flats south of Flag Island have stayed consistent this week with a 30” walleye coming out on Saturday! Muskie fishing is now open and underway in the Northwest Angle.

The flats on the South side of Flag Island (5-7ft) have been putting fish in the box. Spinners and Jigs in Orange and Black are this week’s hot colors. Sharp breaks on the west side of Flag have also been productive. Numerous slot fish coming from the South East side of Garden Island with water temps in the mid to high 60’s.
  16. Greetings from the Northwest Angle! With water temps reaching 67 degrees and steadily on the rise, Minnesota is producing fish close to the island at various depths all throughout the day, from shallow rocks to as deep as 26 feet. As long as you are confident in your approach, limits can be obtained on Spinner baits, Daredevils, jigs and spinners. It is a fun time to be fishing in Canada, with multiple fish over 20" our best results have been on jigs (orange and gold specifically) with a minnow. Rocky shorelines are producing great numbers of Smallmouths and we are starting to
  17. 3.13.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! The snow pack has diminished and snowmobile trails on the the lake are icy. The forecast for this week is great for extending our ice fishing season. On the Minnesota side, the number of perch have greatly increased with many 14 inchers being caught.

  18. 3.6.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Report Hello from the NW Angle! Mid-week we are expecting temperatures in the teens and a few inches of snow which should help extend the hard water season! On the Minnesota side, fishing has really picked up. The morning bite is strong up until the noon hour and picks back up again around 4pm. With the longer days, the evening bite is a little more consistent. Black and gold as well as pink and white have continued to produce the most fish. We are fishing more rock piles than in February and are having good luck at depths between 22 and

  20. 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
  21. In mid-August I'm staying at Laughing Waters just north of Sioux Narrows. I think the adjacent portion of LOW is called Long Bay. I've never been there before and never fished LOW. I've heard rumors that the water in this area of LOW is very clear (lake trout water) and the walleye fishing is difficult unless you put on a lot of miles each day and head west. Can anyone give me a general sense of what to expect from the LOW in this area? We will be primarily fishing walleye but I'd like to catch some nice smallies too. Thanks.
