  1. Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling! On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph. Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes. Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees. We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

  5. I thought it was about time to post how the first 10 days of the season have gone for my wife and myself. Things started out pretty slow for us. We found the fish virtually everywhere we expected them with sonar but only a scattered "biter" here and there. The bite has really picked up for us since about last Thursday. We are finding a more consistent bite in specific areas(as opposed to here and there) and the depths have been 23'-32'. All of our fish the last couple of days including today came from steep shoreline breaks with the optimum depth being 27'. Bottom varies from mud to gravel to rock. With the exception of one "leech" fish, we have caught everything on rainbows. Backtrolling and controlled drift has been our presentation. The biggest walleye we have caught so far has been a 24". We have caught very few slot fish so far this spring. 14"-15" fish have been far and away the most numerous and we have caught a sprinkling of 16" and over fish. I have stayed with my bottom bouncer rig and my wife has used the traditional Lindy rig with a no-snag sinker. By the way, they're just kidding when they call those things "no-snag". The dock bite has really picked up also. We go down for an hour or so in the evening and have a ball watching the bobbers go down. Most of our bite is before we even turn on the bobber lights! Water temperatures today were 52.3 degrees in the far east end of Big Bay, 56.6 degrees at Moose Island, and 58.9 degrees at Banana Island. It appears fishing will keep getting better, but then again, what do I know? I'm retired! Don't think for a second that this is all fun ! Good Fishing, MarkB
  6. Please share your fishing reports here! If you have any video or pictures, we can help you post them. Just ask. Thank you!
  7. I know the lakes are open and that means some the first open water fishing spots are producing. Any one out there catching em yet? I will be riggin the ultra light up today so I can stop on my way home from work.
  8. Is there any netting action on Cutfoot yet? Heading up to open up the shack this weekend, was hoping to go take a look. Looking at the Williams Narrows web cam it looks as though the ice is getting awful black! Still got a ways to go though.

  11. 3.13.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! The snow pack has diminished and snowmobile trails on the the lake are icy. The forecast for this week is great for extending our ice fishing season. On the Minnesota side, the number of perch have greatly increased with many 14 inchers being caught. Good sized saugers are being seen as well. The dead stick is still productive, rattlers and spoons used as attracting method in the sand or mud off of the rock structure. Canadian fishing has been consistent, limits of crappies are being caught in 30-33ft with fine plastics that wiggle. Walleyes can be had easily near rock structure in 22-26 feet. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
  12. 3.6.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing & Ice Report Hello from the NW Angle! Mid-week we are expecting temperatures in the teens and a few inches of snow which should help extend the hard water season! On the Minnesota side, fishing has really picked up. The morning bite is strong up until the noon hour and picks back up again around 4pm. With the longer days, the evening bite is a little more consistent. Black and gold as well as pink and white have continued to produce the most fish. We are fishing more rock piles than in February and are having good luck at depths between 22 and 24 ft. On the Canadian side, holes between 28 and 30 feet are a solid bet for crappies. Blue and white tungsten with a red mustache worm or wax worm have been very productive. We are seeing a lot more perch in our catch. Still a couple weeks of great fishing left, come join us! Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team

  14. Well im hoping that maybe ill be able to find a little insight as to how i can feed my ice fishing addiction on the weekend. While working all week its not that I have to travel alot to find a lake. Just that i plunged into my addiction being a novice at best. Looking for some advice on what to look for when choosing lakes and how to go about pursuit on the lake.
  15. 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
  16. 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast. On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase. Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team

  18. Hi everyone. I am brand new to the forums and am wondering if anyone has any fishing reports and/or tips for Lake Inguadona? I will be fishing this lake during the last week of June with my son and father-in-law and don't know much about the lake. It looks like it is stocked with walleyes every other year and there are smaller than normal limits on crappies and sunfish...other than that I haven't found much info besides lake maps, etc. Any tips/tricks or information on fishing Inguadona would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

  20. 2.13.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! On the Minnesota side, fishing has really picked up this week! The ice is thick and temps are nice, making for a much more pleasurable hard-water experience. Less turbidity has really allowed for more natural colors to work. Using the dead stick is still producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as, multiple over 28! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30ft plus in the mud with Tungstens topped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team

  22. Is it feasible to even launch a boat on White Bear, Ramsey County Beach?
  23. Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
