12.8.20 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Report - NW Angle of LOW

12.8.20 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Update - Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods

 

Hello from Sunset Lodge on Oak Island!
 

We got ice!
 

Lower than normal current levels have led to better than average, more consistent early ice conditions in the Northwest Angle. Wind and warm temps have kept the main lake south of Garden Island open until just recently.
 

As usual, ice conditions are always changing and there remain many areas that are still unsafe for travel. With the cold weather and little snow in the forecast we are likely to see improved and more stable ice thickness across the lake.
 

Our fish houses are resting on 8-11 inches of ice and are within a 10 minute ride of the resort.
 

Fishing pressure is low and catching is excellent! We have a very strong morning and evening bite with good action in between. Active fish are smashing rattle baits and most fish will accept a jig and a minnow.

 

Traffic is low and conditions are ideal for an early ice getaway, we are accepting fly-in reservations starting Monday the 14th! Our runway is marked and is currently sitting on 11 inches of ice. If you don’t have your own plane, we are partnered with Lake Country Air, they are currently flying to us from multiple Northern Minnesota locations
