2.9.21 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Report!


We are finding quality walleye and sauger in 20-24 ft, with the best method being to acctract them in with a rattle bait such as a rippin rap or buckshot. Our houses with the best numbers have been ones in 28 ft. or deeper. When no fish are being marked, it is important to aggressively rip baits 3-4 feet, then slow the action as fish appear on screen.


The attitude of a walleye can change from house to house, where one shack has all the action on a deadstick, the next house can get most bites by jigging. Angles who reasses their presentaion daily will put more fish in the pail.


Pike from 22-44 inches are being caught on live or dead sucker minnows. Bring up some suckers and place tip ups on or near rock structure and watch flags fly!

The Ice Road from Warroad is open and in great shape.



Join this weekend on a SPECIAL Valentine's Day day pass for only $75 round trip per vehicle.



Snowmobile trails are being groomed consistently and are also in good shape.



Come visit us on the 27th of February for the Edge Rider’s 20th Annual Snowmobile Rally!

    • This what the back of mine looks like. I was thinking I could mount the gun holder type of grips to the metal bar in the back, if they're strong enough to hold - which is sounds like they are. I will research those previous threads though and see if I come across better ideas. Thanks Leech.
    • Sounds like a nice sled. Does it have the metal rack in the back?  I think there has been a few threads on this subject if you try a search on here and over on FM.   I, and I believe Wanderer, have the gun holders mounted on the back rack.  Not sure what brand I have but they work great. They have U bolts on a metal bracket and I just flip them up when I get to the lake and tighten them, loosen and flip them down when done fishing and putting my cover on for traveling.  I've gone about 45-50mph with the auger on the back not didn't move a bit with a bungy cord on them. If I'm just taking it easy from spot to spot they just sit there and have never fallen off.     
    • I have an 11 year old lab that is very sensitive to SOME noises, primarily beeps from a timer on the stove, watch or something on TV, rumble strips are also a big fear.  Of course the microwave beep doesn't bother him, guessing it is due to food association. He is not bothered by the vacuum, shooting, leaf blower, drills or other loud noises. He wears an e-collar when hunting and this doesn't seem to bother him.   We have new appliances so last night we used the timer on the stove, I had the dog up in the kitchen and was distracting him with a treat when the timer went off, he immediately began to shake and left the room and tries to hide someplace.   Any ideas on what to try and help with this?  
    • Nice! But holy smokes, not much snow!
    • Took a little run to Grand Marais.       Upper Gooseberry falls...
    • I just purchased a used 2up, which is the first snowmobile I've owned and I plan to primarily use it for ice fishing.  What is everyone using for auger racks?  Are the Kolpin grips strong enough to hold an auger?  I have a Nils auger which is very light, but I got the sled with the idea my dad could use it when he's at the cabin, and he has an ION that is about 22 pounds. I see the Kolpin Rino Grip Pros are rated to 50 pounds, but I wasn't sure if that's a best-case scenario and not banging around while driving.   I got a 2011 Polaris IQ LXT if the make/model matters.   Thanks for helping a newby out.
    • I hear ya! Still some decent snow on Vermilion...at least till Wednesday, talking mid 40's. Hopefully, I'll catch some fish in the balmy weather.
    • You better get that spin in soon. Snows melting fast!
