2.26.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, Nw Angle Of Low

Recommended Posts

Hello from the NW Angle!

 

Walleye and Sauger fishing on the Minnesota side has been a much more active bite than the previous few weeks.  We are fishing anywhere from 21 to 28 ft. on Jiggin’ raps, Rippin’ raps and Buckshot with glow green and glow red being the most productive colors.  Make sure to have an active presentation to get them off of the bottom.  Dead stick method is still producing during mid-day however, it is helpful to have a jigging line in as well to lure them into the immediate vicinity.

 

Crappie fishing is holding steady east of Oak Island on the Canadian side. Deeper holes (30+ feet) are the target area. Using a small set up with a basic minnow head or plastic will bring them in. The bite is incredibly light so some patience and trial and error is key.

 

We are beginning to see a large amount of slush in our area, keep to staked trails and travel in groups.  After the recent snow storm we are getting snow moved and trails back into favorable condition. Join us Saturday March 2nd for the 18th annual Edge Riders Snow Rally. Support the snowmobile club that keeps our trails in amazing condition and enter to win a brand new Polaris Titan. 11am-4pm at Sunset Lodge!

 

Until next week,

Sunset Lodge

    • The whitewater rafting was decent.  Low level class 1-3 but still enjoyable.  River and Trail Outfitters at Harpers Ferry.  Now sitting in the Guide House, a local favorite established by one of the veteran rafting guides.  Having a Duck Rabbit Brewery Milk Stout and ready to dig in to a fine bowl of crab mac.   Yes. Yes I did fall out of the raft in one of the rapids.  It’s was pretty fun!
    • How many people are still fishing out of a 14 foot Lund?  
    • Seems kinda pointless for about 99.9999% of people that are just fishing some dumb lake in their 14 foot lund.   
    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
