  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Greetings from Sunset Lodge!!Fishing is holding strong up in the Northwest Angle! Both the East and West side of Little Oak have been producing large amounts of Walleye and Sauger between 17 and 22ft, with the largest walleye coming out of Sunset Lodge being 29 inches. The flats on the South side of Flag Island (5-7ft) have been putting fish in the box. Spinners and Jigs in Orange and Black are this week’s hot colors. Sharp breaks on the west side of Flag have also been productive. Numerous slot fish coming from the South East side of Garden Island with water temps in the mid to high 60’s. Our biggest Walleye coming out of Canada this week was a 29.5 inch pig. Jigging seems to be the most productive with gold or pink jigs from tranquil channel to Monkey Rock reef. Gardner Island also been hot up shallow on the South side with Orange and Gold jigs. Starting Saturday Muskie season is upon us and the fish are hungry! We hope to see you soon!Sunset Lodge [email protected]
  15. Greetings from the Northwest Angle! With water temps reaching 67 degrees and steadily on the rise, Minnesota is producing fish close to the island at various depths all throughout the day, from shallow rocks to as deep as 26 feet. As long as you are confident in your approach, limits can be obtained on Spinner baits, Daredevils, jigs and spinners. It is a fun time to be fishing in Canada, with multiple fish over 20" our best results have been on jigs (orange and gold specifically) with a minnow. Rocky shorelines are producing great numbers of Smallmouths and we are starting to see weeds develop all over the Angle and islands. Just a reminder: Muskie season opens on June 17th! We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
  16. 5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods Happy Memorial Day! The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good. The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits. On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees. Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange. Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort, Lake of the Woods NW Angle 2-20-17 Fishing on the MN side started out a little slower at the beginning of the warmer temps we have been having but we have seen a 360 turn around and fishing is back to where we like to see it for the NW Angle. We are seeing a lot of nice Walleye, Sauger, Perch, Tulibee and Pike being caught in 20-26 feet on the rocks and sand. The best areas we have seen all year are on rocks and shallow, the fish are feeding on the crayfish. The best colors ave been gold, red, silver and blue on spoons, rattler flyers, ripping raps and buckshots. Over on the Canadian Side the Walleyes, saugers, Perch, Crappie and Pike continue to bite. The morning and afternoon bite has been best for the Walleye and Crappies. The Crappie bite has been best in 30 plus feet, look for deep holes with trees nearby and 26-28 feet on rock bars, reefs, shoals and humps for Walleyes. Tungsten jigs #6 or #8 have been best for Crappies with red or pink plastics and a wax worm, spring bobbers and electronics are recommended. Buckshots, flyers, flutter spoons, and rippin raps have been successful for Walleyes With the warmer temps and rain we have recently experienced most of the snow has melted and we are left with water on top of the ice. For snowmobiles it is recommended to have scratchers to prevent overheating. We still have good ice with 24 plus inches and the roads are still good, the approaches are a little rough and sloppy but manageable. With the cold weather coming things should firm up quickly. Check with resorts and guides for up to date ice conditions. Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Ray King, Dan Schmidt, Professional Fishing Guide, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers. Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
  20. 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
  21. 1.30.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report The weather is finally cooperating and it feels like January! Last week's sloppy conditions have frozen over and all trails have been groomed. Fishing on the Minnesota side has slowed in the morning but a mid-day to afternoon bite is still strong anywhere between 17 and 28ft. Fishing the dead stick has been most productive with many limits produced and a fair amount of slot fish being released. Canada is still pumping out the crappies, the magic number seems to be right around 30 ft., Deep water Bay has seen a lot of action for both the walleye and crappie bite. Have a great week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
  22. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort 1/30/17 The weather this past week up here in the angle has been pretty unstable with temps in the single digits and closer to the thirties and now snow flurries today. The fish have still been biting and anglers are still taking home limits every day. On the Minnesota side, anglers are catching a good mix of fish including Walleye, Sauger, Perch, Pike and Smallmouth Bass. Eel Pout will be spawning within the next couple of weeks. The depths we have been fishing with success is 20-26 feet and in 13-14 feet from 4-6pm in current. The areas we are fishing are on rock reefs, rock points, rubble rock and sandbars. Rattling flyers, buck shots, spoons and plain hooks on dead sticks. Hot colors include red, pink, gold and silver. Most days jigging is out producing dead sticks. Over on the Ontario side the Crappie bite is still good and holding. Jigging with a plastic on a Tungsten jig with a wax worm has been the most successful tactic. The Crappies are in the mud eating mostly mayfly larvae in 30 feet of water. The best locations are in deep mud holes near structure. The magic colors are still glow white and pink. The Walleye bite has also remained and we are finding them at the end of deep points and reefs between 25 and 32 feet of water using frozen shiners. Many anglers have been catching several smallmouth bass and we just wanted to make it known that these are illegal fish in the wintertime in Ontario. If one were to bite you must immediately release them. As always it is recommended to stay on staked trails with the ever changing ice conditions due to the high current in many areas. One last thing to note is that when crappie fishing the mortality rate is very high for catch and release, we recommend targeting another species once you have caught your limit. Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Ray King, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
  23. Hey all,a little update for you on how things are going up here in the north land. After extensive flooding with the other resorts on the creek and some help from some heavy equipment we now have a suitable crossing on the lake side of the point! We began hauling houses out today and are excited to get fishing soon! If anyone has an itch to get some early ice fishing in we have a couple houses out now and plan on bringing the rest of the fleet out over the next couple of days. The ice in the first couple miles past the crossing is quite rough but there's smoother ice after about the 2 mile mark on the trail. The early reports of the fishing from the first few days is decent in the 20-23' of water range jigging with frozen shiners. Happy fishing everyone and we can't wait to see you on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

  24. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 1/16/17 Fishing up here in the angle has been great! On the Minnesota side the Walleye, Sauger and Jumbo Perch bite has been hot. The early morning and afternoon bite has been best and the fish are aggressive. We have been fishing in 21-28 feet on reefs, gravel bars, shoals and rocks. Buckshots, Lindy Flyers, Ripping Raps, and Jigging Raps have all produced fish. Live minnows with demon glow and a bobber have also been successful. Colors of choice have been red glow, gold, pink and green glow. A lot of nice fish in the 29 inch range have been caught as well as large quantities. Over on the Ontario side the Crappie and Walleye bite has been awesome, better than the days of Red Lake. We have also hooked into the Jumbo Perch and they are of good size and quantity. We’ve been fishing in the 28-34 foot range. Something to know about when fishing up the deep waters of Ontario is the crappie mortality rate is high when releasing crappies in 25' of water or greater. We encourage guests to catch your desired number of crappies up to your limit and then go target other species of fish. Crappies and Walleyes sometimes appear to swim back down the hole when released but often times do not make it due to being reeled in so fast from great depths. We still advise anglers to stay on marked trails due to the heavy current changing ice conditions. Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Ray King, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
  25. Fishing report from Flag Island Resort, Lake of the Woods NW Angle 1/2/17 Happy new year everyone! We hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. Fishing up in the NW Angle has been really heating up and we are in the full swing of things once again! We have a plowed ice road marked with signs out the resort and open to full sized vehicles. There is also a staked snowmobile trail all the way up from Baudette. On the Minnesota side the Walleye, Sauger and Perch bite has been good. We have about 14-16 inches of ice. Walleye and Perch are being caught in 20-26 feet and Saugers in the 20-28 foot range. Reefs, shoals and rocks are producing with gold, white, green and red colored tackle. Buck shots, ripping raps, stop signs and jigging spoons have all been successful. For the dead sticks frosties and glow demons have seemed to work best. Jigging with electronics has been key and out producing live bait rigs and dead sticks. Over on the Canadian side the Crappie bite is heating up, limits are being caught for patient fishermen and women and the bite has been more time sensitive than the spot. 30 to 33 feet depths and on structure have been producing Crappies using red, pink and white small Tungsten jigs, the glow in the dark white being the best with either small plastics or frozen shiners. The Walleye bite has been on the deeper side in 24 plus feet and off of structure. We advise staying on marked trails as the ice conditions are changing daily with the current. Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Ray King, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
