6.19.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report

1 post in this topic

Hello from the NW Angle!

On the Minnesota side, water temperatures have dropped in the past few days due to the strong winds in the area, making boat control a challenge. Wind-blown shorelines have plenty of active fish between 4 and 14ft. Productive presentations include Rapalas and spinner rigs.  The Flats south of Flag Island have stayed consistent this week with a 30” walleye coming out on Saturday!
 
Muskie fishing is now open and underway in the Northwest Angle. With cooler water temps, fish location and activity has been sporadic. Walleye action off Gardener and Deepwater reefs continue to fill limits with gold and pink jigs being the hot colors in Canada this week. 

We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!
      This week’s water temps are 68-70 on the main lake and 71-76 in back bays.
      Minnesota walleyes are taking crawlers and minnows on spinners around reefs with gold/orange and gold/pink being the most productive in 16-25 ft. Deep and shallow crank-baits are triggering fish in the same areas including reef tops early in the day and just before sunset.
      On the Canadian side, jigging reefs continues to fill live wells with walleye and perch, the best results come from jigging the edges of the reef with gold, pink blue and white, tipped with a fathead or shiner.  Reefs surrounded with softer, shallow (20-24ft) bottom will yield walleye and sauger via spinners. 
      Besides the occasional musky caught jigging walleye, the more traditional methods like bucktails over weed/rock transition areas are resulting in fish in the net! Spinnerbaits in the weeds will generate opportunities as well. The Algae bloom is minimal and visibility is still good. 
      We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      Here in Minnesota, Walleyes are being landed out of 24-28’ West of Four Blocks. Pulling crawlers in the mud off of structure with Gold and Orange has been successful. 

      Water temps have warmed up nicely to 70 degrees on the main lake and mid to high 70's in back bays in the afternoon resulting in Muskies on the hook. Best results have been on smaller baits such as spinners (Slop-master Bucher) and Buck tails.

      On the Canadian side, Walleyes have been seen on main lake humps and reefs. Deep Water Bay and East of Monument are good place to start with spinner rigs and bottom bouncers.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      The water temps have been improving to the upper 60’s and lower 70’s.

      Up in the Canadian waters, jigging orange and gold have been producing very well. Areas near Skeet & Kennedy are still putting numbers of eyes and perch in the boat. Bishops Point off the reefs has been producing as well. On the east side of Monument in 22-28 feet has been producing walleye, including many over 25.” Deepwater Bay has been heating up with eater sized Walleyes and the occasional Crappie.

      If you are looking to get on a great smallmouth bite, then now is the time! Many people are putting 100+ fish in the boat near tranquil Channel using cranks and spinnerbaits.

      On the American side, people have been limited on their distance due to the wind but areas such as Lunatic and Four Blocks have been doing good pulling spinners with crawlers or minnows from 22-26 feet on the East side.

      Muskie fishing is now starting to heat up as we get into our fourth week of the season as the water temps have improved to the upper 60's. A few people have been putting mid to upper 40" fish in the boat with many walleye anglers hooking into muskies as well.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon!
