7.6.20 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Minnesota Lake of the Woods Walleye action continues in less than 10’ casting Rapala’s, floating leeches or pulling crawlers in rocks and sand bays. Walleye are also showing back up on classic structure including points and main lake reefs. Trolling deep diving Rapala’s has been producing very large pike and slot walleye in 12 to 18 ft. of water. Lake of the Woods Musky opener was successful in shallow, weeded areas. With one over 50” boated and the rare 49.5” as well as many mid 40” fish. With water temps increasing into the high 70’s this week, Rock areas are heating up. Smaller bass sized baits and blades have been favored by these toothy critters. Current musky anglers are seeing up to 10 fish a day!
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!

Here is this weeks fishing report! http://www.sunsetlodgeresort.com/fishing-reports Up at the NW Angle, with the fall transition we are switching to deep points. 24 to 30 feet. Look for narrow areas going into big bays. Water temperature has dropped to 65 degrees. On the Ontario side, with the crappie bite back on, it's time to look East towards North Island and Falcon Island! On the Minnesota side, you guessed it, FOUR BLOCKS! We are fishing mud out around the Four Blocks area. Just drifting, pulling spinner and worms. Here is Forrest Huset's muskie report for the week, "Fish are still coming off rocks. More and more big fish are showing themselves as the season goes on. Switching over to all big baits. Double 10's and big crankbaits. Big baits for big fish." Forrest, Dom Baker (former Sunset Lodge employee), his girlfriend Morgan Strauss really had some fun muskie and pike fishing this week. Enjoy the pictures! If you'd like to come up and fish with myself, Forrest or our other great guides, please give us a call! We'd be glad to show you around the NW Angle. Until next week, good fishing! Dan Schmidt
