Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing is really starting to pick up, which usually means Spring is on the way! Fishing on the Minnesota side has been best at first and last light, which can make for long days on the ice this time of year. The Sauger bite has really picked up with a lot good sized eaters coming out of 21-25 ft. The most effective colors for both Walleye and Sauger have been Chartreuse, White, any Glow/lighted/UV (specifically red) and hammered gold. When fishing at depths less than 20 feet, keep an active presentation. Northerns tend to be most active in the early afternoon which is a good time to take a break from jigging and put out a tip-up. Fishing on the Canadian side has been good since the last snow storm and continues to produce Crappie and Walleye. A light setup for crappies with plastics or larvae has been productive. Slush is still frozen in well-traveled areas but it plentiful off trail. Fishing will continue to improve as the weather does, there is still a lot of time to fit in a last minute ice fishing trip!!

Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota Walleye can be found in 19-23ft early and late in the day. Rattle baits will call these actively feeding fish to the hole. Midday action is best adjacent to the break line at 25-29ft. These fish are preferring a more subtle presentation such as a minnow and plain hook or a spoon with a whole minnow on a dead-stick. It remains important to constantly re-charge glow baits to keep them productive in the deeper water. In Canada, walleye and crappie fishing is good in typical spots. Travel can become difficult in slushy areas, solo travel is not advised. Try to run on previous tracks laid as areas of slush will have frozen over night where machines have packed the trail. We are no longer running day houses on the Canadian side, however now is your chance to bring snowmobiles, hire a local guide and limit out on the hot March bite! We are still offering 50% off mid-week lodging through March! (Sun-Wed nights) Until next week, Sunset Lodge
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!
