  1. Fished out of the NW Angle the past five days. Great bite on both the MN and Ontario sides of the lake. Walleye are from 4-40' off points and structure. The drive might be a little longer to the Angle, but the catching is well worth it...pick a resort and they will help you find the fish...they even stock MN-legal eggs for your breakfast so you don't have to try to cross the border with them :-). After you boated 100 fish, check out the $1 happy-hour taps at Sunset Resort on Oak Island or try Jerry's Bar and Grill's great menu at Young's Bay...always friendly service and great food. The chicken-fry at Angle Inn Lodge is a legendary experience. We fished with spinners and jigs, minnows and crawlers and did well with all. Some specifics on both US and Ontario are below. MN: try the Brush Island area...5' to 16' the soft bottom offers very few snags and the active walleye. Soon they will move a bit South and the Flag Flats bite will be amazing....you can't miss the 25+ boats all with nets-at-the-ready. Ontario: try Royal Island and the surrounding points and structure. The water is warming and the biters will move to the edges of points and eventually the small reefs. Want a bit of a driving tour? Try up the Tug Channel and catch your fill of eaters off the marker buoys up and down the channel. More snags than on the MN side, but sometimes a faster bite. The smallmouth are on their beds and offer super fast action in the shallows. Very fun and quick catching. One of our elders boated a 40" pike on a noodle-walleye rod while targeting shallow walleye -- certainly a thrill remembered for years.
  2. I come every June for 2 weeks and fish Kabetogama, Rainy and Rainy river, but have yet to make to Lake of the Woods. I have been leery because I have a 16' boat and I heard the lake can get pretty nasty in the wind. So this year the wife and I and 2 sons have talked about giving it a go. Question is, coming from International falls, where would be the best place to launch. We don't want to venture too far out into the lake the first time, but would like to be in a good area for fish and scenery. Thanks for your input
  3. Numbers of walleyes caught this week have been very good. Using a spinner with either a crawler or leech has definitely been the best way to catch fish. Spinners in hammered gold, pink and white were out producing other colors. Fish are schooling in the rocks off Crowduck, Little Oak and outside Zipple area. Drifting from 15' in towards 7' of water. Best reported bite time is around 2pm - 5pm. Another area with good action has been over by Archie's Reef. Again the spinner has been the best, but some are picking fish up with jig and a minnow.
  4. I don't know about you but I can not believe it is the middle of June! The bite this month has been great! The biggest surprise is how shallow the walleye have been. Water from 4-18 feet of water has produced good bites. Drift with a spinner and crawler moving from deep to shallow if possible. Hammered gold and white would be a good starting color. Work the area in front of Pine Island from the pine to Lighthouse Gap. Some people are getting fish downrigging in the 30 foot depth. Try the water in front of The Fields or over towards Zipple Bay area. Heading across Big Traverse to Knight or Garden Island and the rock piles are also showing good numbers of walleye. Pink has been a jig of choice up north tipped with a shiner. This is a beautiful time of the year to enjoy some fishing! Click to see info on reserving your cabin or charter fishing trip.
  5. Anglers reporting a good mix of eaters and slot walleyes this week using a variety of methods. Anchoring and jigging is favored. When it's windy,spinners are the go to method. The mud flats outside of Pine were good in 15-22 feet. Pine Island to Zippel Bay had walleyes in 24-30. Long Point over to 12 Mile Reef had numbers in the 19-22 foot range. Those that headed north to the reefs got lucky in 16-21 feet. Hot colors were gold, chartreuse, or pink. On the Rainy River, smallmouth bass and northern pike very active with walleyes in the mix as well. Best bite in 17-20 feet jigging with a minnow or frozen shiner on pink or gold. On cloudier days with less clarity try shallower waters in 14-16 feet. Up at the NW Angle, good fishing continues with mixed bags of fish. Walleyes and pike very active in 20-25 feet near Oak Island and Blackbird Island or the west side of Garden using gold or orange. Perch are spawning and the smallmouth bass are in the shallows as well. In Ontario waters, numerous spots producing as well. Try Falcon Island in 25 feet for walleye and crappies.
  6. Fished out of Wheeler’s Point last Sunday thru Wednesday. I should say we got up there late in the afternoon on Sunday and got rained out, and Monday’s weather was LESS than desirable. We could only fish the river Monday due to the hurricane, with notta bump. Tuesday and Wednesday the weather, and fishing, were phenomenal! Spent the entire day on the water both days 7am to 7pm. Fished back and fourth between 22-27 FOW in front of Pine Island. We caught LOTS of small 12-15” walleye and sauger, but made up for the small fish with 10 slots and several 17-18” walleyes. The highlight was a 29” 9lb walleye, 3rd picture below! The other slot fish were between 20” and 24”. What a ball!! White and pink 3/8oz jigs with a frozen shiner, live fat head or, leeches caught fish. I will say that only 3 fish were caught on leeches but they were all slot fish. Frozen shiners were the best. Can’t wait to get back! Have a great day!
  7. Fishing over the last couple days has been decent and outlook for the weekend is even better. Boats are reporting the best bite to be in the evening hours. Jig with pink, hammered gold or white.
  8. The 2015 walleye fishing opener is in the books. Warm weather would have been nice, but I will take good fishing over nice weather any day! Good fishing was reported in all our boats. The charters set up in the 18-24 foot range. Chartreuse or gold jigs in a 3/8 oz size had the best action. The fishing wasn’t fast and furious but overall very steady. Many slot fish, some of the smaller than keeper sizes and a few in the 28″ range were all netted and released. When the day was done most people had enough fish for a limit and some great stories to tell. We also had a boat fish for northern, and they landed many nice fish on Saturday. They were pulling Rapalas at about 8-10 foot depths from the resort area all the way up to the church. It looks like we are expected to get rain during this week. But the weekend is shaping up to be beautiful. A high of 67 on Friday and 72 on Saturday and Sunday. We have cabins and charters available. So click over to our cabins page for more info.
