  1. What a great week we had here in the Northwest Angle! Good weather and fantastic fishing were capped off by a Fourth of July celebration here at Sunset Lodge that ended with a bang! In Minnesota, boats are finding walleyes around Little Oak Island, Crowduck Island and the south side of Oak Island. Tactics have varied, but jigging with gold, pink and orange jigs in 24 to 30 feet of water around deep water humps, points and rock piles has been turning fish. Crawlers and minnows both seem to be working well. Pulling crankbaits and drifting spinners has been a good tactic to cover water
  2. 6-27-16 Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort With the unstable weather patterns; wind and rain and the water temp at 69 degrees and holding, the Muskie bite on the Ontario side was slow last week. With all of the wind stirring up the lake we have found some out deep and in thick weeds. For Walleye, Big Narrows has been the place to be. We have still found some in shallow water along shorelines and the Reefs on the breaks in the mud. Pulling spinners in the shallows and using jigs in deep water with a frozen emerald shiner have proven to be successful. On the Minnesota side t
  3. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort 6-20-16 Ontario Saturday was the Musky opener in both Ontario and Minnesota and the water temp at 65 on both sides. A lot of nice fish anywhere from 36- 50 inches being caught with a lot of good action in sandy bays with weed structure and moving to points. Smaller buck tails, jerk baits and other smaller baits proved to be successful. Walleyes have been in 18-30 feet of water in the mud and transitional areas due to the may fly and other bug hatches. White, gold, and pink lead 1/4 -3/8-ounce jig heads are still successful and always
  4. 6.20.16 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report What a week we had up at the Angle! The weather has gone from one extreme to the next. A few days of sunshine mixed with days of rain, and some heavy rainfall at that! Aside from the up and down weather conditions, we are still catching fish. Lots of limits being taken and a few larger fish being caught as well. Early in the week the fishing was slower due to a mayfly hatch, but has steadily improved over the last few days. On the Minnesota side, gold spinners with bottom bouncers and crawlers have been turning fish near Four Blocks, Little
  5. 6.13.16 Sunset Lodge Weekly Fishing Reports Up at the Northwest Angle we had a great week. Everyone is getting their limits and throwing back many more fish, too. The water temperatures rose at the beginning of the week from 60 degrees to anywhere from 63-65 degrees depending on where you were on the lake. The end of the week we had a couple of cold fronts roll thru that made it a little more challenging but we were still catching fish. On the Minnesota side, we have been jigging anywhere that has a rock to mud transition. Usually, 18-23 feet. Some people have
  6. Ontario The walleye bite has been awesome, some of the reefs close to shore are already turning on due to the water temperature hitting that 65-degree mark, so keep those rock humps on your graphs. The magic depths are in that 20-30-foot range on average; with the weather being so unstable this past week, fishing in areas with a lot of current with a jig and frozen emerald shiner have shown to be successful especially in areas like Big Narrows for example. Muskie opener is this coming weekend, set on June 18th. Muskies have spawned out and our bass and walleye fishermen have co
  7. Of all the great times of the year to fish it is hard to beat the fast biting fat Walleyes and Saugers of June on Lake of the Woods. This is from last weekend. The video includes a couple of valuable tips you can use the next time you get out to fish.
  8. Fishing was not real fast in the dead calm of Saturday morning. So we used a basic bit of smarts that I dont usually think applies to Lake of the Woods. We downsized the jigs to 1/8 ounce or less and fish started going right away. (I must remember this IS a good LOW idea) Contact with the bottom was tough with the tiny jigs in 30 feet of water so I remembered I had a brand new Clam Rattling Blade Spoon in the pocket of my jacket. I tied that on and fish still came quickly and the ease of fishing the larger bodied bait made everything easier. I know you have heard it before, but it

  10. Planning a trip for a few of us up to LOTW and looking to get into some crappies. I've read that you need to be on the ontario side to really find the crappies but I'm wondering if its even possible to find them on the MN side? We're open to getting a guide for the Ontario or MN side so does anyone have good, firsthand recommendations on a guide up there? If so, costs? We're thinking of just 2 guys going up there, leaving the women in the ice house.
  11. Adrian’s: Open; allowing ½ ton’s with 21’ wheel house & ¾ ton but no house in tow. They are marked 5 – 6 miles north of the island with a better fishing report. Cyrus Resort: Open; No report but the following is last weeks; ½ ton’s w/o a house in tow, Geo Tracker/jeep Wrangler type vehicles, sleds & ATV’s. Marked out about 8 miles from the island in about 33’ of water has been providing a good sauger/walleye mix. Morris Point: Open; ½ ton pickups & 16’ wheel houses, & ¾ tons empty. Road is in perfect shape; no cracks or heaves. Moved some houses back in the 28-29’
  12. Adrian’s: Open; allowing ½ ton’s but no house in tow, sleds & ATV’s & small SUV’s. Allowing 16’ wheel houses if pulled by ATV. They are marked 5 – 6 miles north of the island with spotty fishing reports. Cyrus Resort: Open; ½ ton’s w/o a house in tow, Geo Tracker/jeep Wrangler type vehicles, sleds & ATV’s. Fishing was a little slow during the cold snap but this warm front coming in could stimulate the bite. Morris Point: Open; ½ ton pickups & 12’ wheel houses, sleds ATV’s & side by sides. Still haven’t achieved the 15” of ice everywhere yet.
  13. Shooting some video a week ago and suddenly 3 kids who were fishing nearby went on a walk about like kids do. They stopped by and started to visit and about half way through the conversation I realized the camera was rolling and I was real glad it was. Here is Fishers Talking Fishing In a Fish House, the fishing show about nothing..... Enjoy https://youtu.be/RDsNnavYZAE
  14. I think everyone knows what's wrong with this. Since it's snowing in Roseau I figured I'd check Sportsman's Dock Cam. Low and behold a guy kept his ice fishing weekend on track but brought the boat. Depressing and rare at the same time.
  15. Snaps from the Sportsman's Rainy River dock cam. Getting closer. Water looks high in comparison to the docks. Another reason it will take a bit longer to ice up this season.
  16. Kurt Kainz (aka Whitetips) wraps up his open water fishing in mid November with a bang up day...Check it out
  17. Sunday at noon Mark Enge, Jon Vagle and I pulled into the dock and put the open water fishing season to bed. We fished for 3.5 hours and had 17 Walleyes, Saugers and Perch in the bucket. Drained what needed to be drained, unhooked batteries, pulled the electronics, opened all the compartments, put in 3 bags of mothballs and put the cover on.....Done. Just a few miles up the shore from where we were fishing(up in the Morris Point and Light House Gaps) fishing was a lot better than where we were. There are lots of fish of all sizes including some really big fatties staged in the lake righ
  18. Memorial Weekend Fishing Report! Up at the NW Angle, we have been having exceptionally good weather which has contributed to great fishing. Temperatures in the upper 70's, light wind and no cold fronts coming through. Our first bugs hatched this weekend which also helped play a part. Our water temperature is now about 50 degrees. On the Minnesota side, the best walleye spot has been between Oak Island and Blackbird Island. The walleyes spawn on various points and shallow bars around Oak so fishing in deeper water (21-25 feet) adjacent to those spots have been producing good results. There
  19. Big fish came calling last Sunday as I set up in deep water and jigged with frozen shiner minnows with some pretty amazing results for a quick 2 hour trip.. Check it out!
  20. I'm coming up with my kid for a few days at the end of next week wondering if there are fish to be had (northerners mostly) on the south end of the lake. 4-mile, bastic, and zipple bays mostly. I'm only running a 17.5' boat so can't really do much running. But weather permitting I would like to see about snagging a fish or two. Thanks
  21. https://soundcloud.com/ncor/ncor-5-4-joe-henry Lake of the Woods is just laying there waiting for us to get out on Saturday. Joe Henry from LOW Tourism figures it ought to be a barn burner Here is the first of 85 new and unique NCOR Podcasts
  22. This week we have had reports of fishing being good all over the lake. On the north side near Crowduck and Little Oak Island they are pulling spinners. The walleye are responding to a hammered gold and leech presentation. Drift or troll if needed from 25-30 feet of water. Towards the west near Zipple Bay there has been a large school of keeper sized fish in shallow. Ranging from 5 to 15 feet of water. Pull blades with a crawler harness to try and entice the walleye bite. Graceton area has had success in the 30 foot depth. Downrigging or trolling for the fish should have results. Pulling p
  23. We fished with the Carter group out North of Garden, but it was SLOW.. Lots of good size Saugar, 15/17 inch. Decided to go back toward the Gap as storm warnings were shown on the phone radar.. Saw some boats in front of lone pine and fished in 4 to 7 feet. They were in there and we filled our limit with real good eaters.. Headed back to the house and had a great fish fry.. It seems to be a different bite so far this year.. Try it Shallow, you may be surprised where you find them..
  24. Any new reports now that the weather has been decent for 2 days in a row? Any news from the south end? Heard the Rainy is starting to get muddy with the run off from all the rain last week.
