  1. Had some fun fishing north of little falls for a few hours today.
  2. Hello from the NW Angle! Water temperatures are slowly falling, with surface temps in the high 40's early in the day and ending in the low 50's in the afternoon. Here in Minnesota, fishing has been great. A jig and minnow set up is the top producer with fish showing preference for orange or chartreuse. Big pike have been caught on the jig and trolling minnow baits. Canadian fishing is consistently putting more crappies and perch in the well. These pan fish will take shiners and sometimes favor them to a fathead or plastic. Fish are HUNGRY and are well fed, a lot of thick fish with full stomachs. 24-32ft has been the favored depth within the last week. With water temps falling and the new moon looming, expect to see more large predator fish this week! Sunset Lodge
  3. 10.9.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Water temps are still hovering in the mid 50’s. Jig and a minnow/shiner will fill your live well in Minnesota. Areas of best success, have been between island or high currents spots with depths ranging from 13-16’ or 22-26.’ Fish are really hungry and are packing on the pounds before ice season! Canadian walleye fishing is also outstanding. Orange, pink or chartreuse with a minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26.’ We have also experienced a lot of perch this week, limits of crappies when targeted, the occasional pike and muskies on the jig. Musky action on shallow reef tops has slowed as fish are moving out to deeper waters, trolling cranks or jigging big rubber is common practice now. Many small mouth have been seen this week with wounds from predatory fish. Less than two weeks left of open water fishing at Sunset Lodge, we have some availability remaining before we close down for the season on October 22! We hope to see you soon, Sunset Lodge
  4. 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! Sunset Lodge
  5. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter. Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up. Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish! We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  6. 9.18.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the Northwest Angle! This week we experienced temps in the low 60’s and a lot of wind. Surface water temps have dropped to the upper 50’s making it to the low 60’s by evening. Fall foliage is in effect and fishing is phenomenal! Minnesota walleyes can be located rather quickly with a Rapala or good electronics, then jigged up with pink/white or gold, tipped with a shiner or fathead anywhere from 17-24ft, shallower in the evening. Canadian walleyes are being caught by crappie anglers. Many crappies are being found schooled off of larger protruding points, fooled by a jig and minnow setup. The biggest walleyes are still being caught by Rapalas in 10-22’, including our biggest walleye of the week; a dandy 29.” Big fish were falling to jerk baits early in the week, with blade baits bringing more fish to the boat recently. Traditional shallow, wind-blown rocks with access to deep water nearby have been the most productive spots. The largest guest fish this week was a beautiful 50” Muskie with a couple more at or near 4 feet. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  7. Spent the evening out on Forest, Lake's 1 and 3, and it was tough!!!!! Didn't even manage a bite. Tried the weed edges and transition lines with nothing. Looks like the weed line is around 11-13 feet from everything I could find. My normal spots didn't produce anything. Board is slow, anyone else out fishing on forest?
  8. I built a simple website to deliver constant National Weather Service updates about the weather and water conditions on Lake of the Woods. http://www.lowmn.com I would love feedback! What else should I add? Happy fishing.
  9. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods! Fishing Canadian waters has produced numbers of fish including crappies! Crappies have been found near underwater trees and timber. The walleye bite has been great with limits coming in, as well as many larger fish over 24 inches. Areas producing the best include Massacre Island, Tug Channel, Skeet Island and Monkey Rocks, fishing on reefs and underwater humps from 24-30 feet of water. Stateside, walleye fishing has been excellent from Oak to Little Oak Island and Dawson Island pulling spinners in the mud or jigging reefs in 26-30 feet. Lots of perch have been mixed in with walleye limits. The musky bite has really heated up from the cold front that passed through recently. With air temps increasing to the low 80’s this week and water temps in the mid to high 60’s it looks like the action will remain strong. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  10. Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s. Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome. Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs. Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors. We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
  11. I haven't been able to get out much this season yet. Only an hour or so. Any word on what you're seeing?
  12. Hello from the NW Angle! The weather this past week has been absolutely fabulous. Stateside, the full moon influence has been making fishing relatively easy. Nice walleye and perch are filling live wells when pulling gold, orange or chartreuse spinners in 13-15’, 20-22’ and 26-3-ft. Large pike are being caught and released trolling crank baits and spoons. Up in Canada, jigging points and around reefs where fish have been located has been extremely productive. Many large fish this weekend coming on pink, orange, black or chartreuse in 18-26 ft. Spinners will put fish on hooks as well! The musky bite in both Canada and Minnesota has been strong, especially in shallow weeds or rock. We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  13. We have had a great week of fishing! We lucked out with the weather having only a few sprinkles. Up in Canada, jigging walleyes early morning and late afternoon has been the best, with orange, gold and yellow being the most productive, as has pulling spinners in 20-28’ using orange along the reefs. In Minnesota, the bite has been on fire with trolling. Blue, chrome, clown or UV pink has worked great in 26-30’. White, orange or chrome spinners have been doing very well from Four Blocks to Garden Island. Muskies have been very active with any fish being seen after bucktails and hard baits. Our guests boated 49" and 51.5" muskies this past week!!! We hope to see you soon!
  14. We have been catching walleyes and pike flat-line trolling Rapala Floating Minnows and Flat Raps in five to seven feet of water on sand and gravel flats. Fish are located near the top of the first break and crusing weed edges on flats. Should be a good bass opener this weekend. Expecting to find bass, walleyes, and pike in similar areas. Will report on weekend techniques and results next week. Be safe--see you out there somewhere.
  15. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!Up on Oak Island, we have had warm temperatures reaching mid 80’s with water temps in the mid 70’s with good visibility.In Minnesota, chrome and chartreuse spinners and blue or silver crankbaits have been producing the best off of Lunatic Island and Four Blocks Island or West of Little Oak Island in 28-32 ft. of water.Up in Canada, jigging gold or purple tipper with either fat heads or shiners next to rock and mud lines has been the most productive.The musky bite has heated up with many large fish over 46” being boat. Hopefully the bite will stay strong with thunderstorms in the near future.We hope to see you soon!
  16. Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs. The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.We hope to see you soon!Sunset Lodge
  17. 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! Sunset Lodge
  18. 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!Sunset Lodge

  21. 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!Sunset Lodge
  22. I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish. Thanks in advance!
  23. 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! Sunset Lodge
  24. 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! Sunset Lodge Staff
