10.2.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, nw Angle of low

Recommended Posts

Sunset Lodge

Hello from the NW Angle!

The water temps are dropping and the fishing is really heating up. Surface temperatures are starting in the low 50’s and reaching mid 50’s by afternoon.

Walleye fishing in Minnesota has been phenomenal. The best fishing is happening close to the resort on a jig and minnow. We have had non-guided boats setting fish counts of over 100! Current areas between islands and near holes are HOT with good numbers of slot fish and perch to be had.

Canadian fishing is excellent as well. Really nice limits of crappies, perch and walleye this week. Crappie location can be simplified by a guide or try known spots with classic structure, orange jig and minnow has been the top producer.

Nice muskies have been boated while trolling and while jigging for walleye. 

We plan to close for the season on October 21st. 

We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      The bite remains consistent on the Minnesota side where we are fishing between 26 and 28 feet, yielding good walleye, sauger and jumbo perch. The dead stick will provide action early and throughout the day. Shallower depths are worth fishing early and late for quality walleye, a majority of which are in the slot.

      Up in Canada, big crappies are filling buckets via minnows, plastics and rip’n raps as well as, very light setups in 28-32 feet. Walleye fishing is outstanding near structure, either points or reefs. jig’n raps, buck shots or spoons have been productive.

      See you soon!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      We have had another strong week of Walleye and Sauger fishing up in the Northwest Angle with fish being caught all throughout the day! Fish in the 24-30” class were common with pails full of Walleye over 16” coming in as well. The best approach methods have varied through out the day, from a dead stick to an actively jigged buckshot or rip’n rap. Glow red, gold and any UV colors are preferred just off structure at the bottom of the break lines between 24 and 30ft. Many football sized giant perch  were seen this week, too.

      On the Ontario side, Walleye have been active all day long. Certain reefs have been giving up fish consistently to anything that is actively presented.  Crappie fishing has been best early and late in the day with 14” fish common in 28’  or deeper.

      See you soon!

      Happy New Year from the NW Angle!
      On the Minnesota side, we are fishing walleyes in 22-28 feet. Success has been had on slender spoons, Rip’n raps and rattle baits near structure and break lines. Saugers and Perch have been more consistent in water deeper than 26’ using the same baits. This past week with the cold weather dead sticks were producing in the afternoon. We have houses placed in typical spots for the season; from the north side of Oak all the way to Shady with ice depth as thick as 2 feet. Stay to marked trails as there is a small amount of rough ice. Our biggest walleye of the week was pushing 30” with many more in the slot. 
      Crappies coming out of Canada are huge as usual, with many at or above 14 inches being caught out of 30 feet of water. Walleye and Perch can still be had off of any rock point using UV rip’n raps or a dead minnow. 
      We hope to see you soon!

      Ice fishing continues to be very good. On the south shore fishing Big Traverse Bay, nice mix of walleyes and saugers in 20 - 28'. Varying ice conditions all over the lake so please go through a resort and use the ice roads as they are checked daily and groomed for smoother travel.  Some ice roads allowing 1/2 ton trucks.  Most resorts update Facebook pages for current info or call ahead.  Water clarity is good.  Some days jigging line is hot, some days dead stick with a plain hook / minnow.  Gold, glow, and pink are good colors.  Try a rattle if fish not reacting.  Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.    The Rainy River is ice covered with a few local fish houses here and there, but overall, with current of the river, we suggest working through resorts for safety.  The majority of the resorts fish the lake.     The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has started out excellent.  Walleyes in 22-26' with mixed in saugers, pike and perch.  Resorts are guiding anglers to big crappie on the Ontario side of lake. Snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point on south shore to NW Angle is marked.
