Any west end musky reports all since opener? Heading up for the weekend and will fish mostly for muskies, smallies, and may try for some walleyes in the evenings. Can't wait to be back up at the lake!

Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work!

I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles. 

We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

Buckle Up.  Already seeing mayflies in some of the walleyes stomachs.   My shoreline was covered in them on Sunday morning.

Thanks Cliff! I think I am going to make a run Friday morning for Frazer if the weather cooperates. 

Any idea on a rough depth range I should be looking at? I've never fished Frazer but will park over the top of a few reefs and give it a go.'

Tight lines!

Thanks Cliff! I’m planning on picking up some leeches on my way it. Has the bite gravitated toward crawlers at all too?

I'll let you know tomorrow night if the weather holds out😀  We had a decent spring bite there.  One evening I just caught a nice walleye and out of no where, 4 young adults appear from the other side of the cabin and start casting bobbers all around us. I was on spotlock and ended up moving. We caught 3 in the hour or so we were there and didn't catch another after the move.

so what was with the four boats fishing the mouth of the partridge river by metsa point, stone wall, like tuesday or wed?   That is totally a spring spot but now?  Cigar guy, you see that?

Also saw two boats fishing the weeds where it narrow down to go to black bay...   Once(lo many moons ago) I got into t he crappies in that spot in the summer not spring.  anyone know?

Only caught one 19" and it was trolling thru that area. Two boats were bobber fishing, saw them net one, but couldn't tell what it was. We worked a few spots, marked a fair amount, but they were tight lipped. Also caught several nice sunnies.

I made a run to Frazer yesterday at 5am, by the time I got there from Wakemup Narrows the wind picked up. I fished for an hour and then decided to head back before the wind started to blow even worse. It was a harrowing ride from Oak Narrows back to Muskego Point in the 14 foot fishing boat I've got and puttered into 2+ ft waves. I think I am going to hold off making that trip until I've got a bigger boat 😲

This morning I sat on a hump in Norwegian, another boat that was in the area but across the bay about 300 yards trolled over and fished around me so I pulled up and went to windsock instead. They had a marker out on the spot that I didn't even see until they came over and looked annoyed... 

I fished around some other Islands in Norwegian but no walleyes to report, plenty of perch, smallies, and largies as well.

Anyone having luck with walleyes? I have been trying lindys and jigs with leeches but may need to switch it up.

Got off the lake about 10pm, what a beautiful night on the lake. Fished several spots out in Wakemup, no luck. Finished th last  hour or so of daylight by Metsa's Point, wife caught a 13" crappie and right at dark I boated this 21-3/4 walleye. Hurts not to be able to keep dinner😒

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake. 
      TIA

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Water temperatures are currently hovering in the mid 70’s.

      Minnesota walleye action has been really good with bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Gold spinners with hints of chartreuse, orange or just hammered gold are favored.  Walleye and occasional large pike can be had trolling deep diving crank baits around shoreline breaks and reefs.

      Canadian walleye fishing continues to excite anglers via jigs and minnows. Pink or white jigs tipped with shiners will put fish in the boat.  Night crawlers on spinners will produce fish in the mud deeper than 25 feet. 

      Musky action has been all over the place, fish are still being found in sandy, weedy bays, rock points and reefs.  The nearing new moon should have fish on the prowl this week. 

      Congratulations to our neighbor and local guide, Forrest Huset and his dad Sean on their victory at the Lake of the Woods Musky Bowl this weekend!

      Another neighbor, Jerry Klema, landed a 29 1/2 inch trophy walleye last week!

      Until next week,

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!
      In Minnesota, walleye have been found using green, gold and orange spinners in 24-30 ft.  Jigging in the morning on tops of the reef has been the most productive.
      In Ontario, walleye fishing has been very good jigging on top of reefs as well, with gold and orange being the hot colors.  Musky fishing has been heating up as muskies are moving to the reefs and windblown points.  Multiple muskies have been caught over 50 inches within the last week.
      Happy Independence Day!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, Walleye fishing has been good in 18-28ft pulling hammered gold and orange lindy rigs.  Jigging has also been very productive on top of the reefs before the Walleye move out deeper onto the flats.  Key areas have been Dawson Island, Little Oak and Shady Island.
       
      In Ontario, Walleye have been found deeper in 22-30ft.  A gold or chartreuse jig with a fathead or frozen shiner have been producing well around Deepwater bay, West side of Falcon and Gardner Island.  Many fish over 24 inches including a few Northern Pike and Muskie.  

      Good luck and keep your lines wet!

      Hello, from Sunset Lodge!

      Fishing has picked up significantly this week. In Minnesota, high winds limited fishing areas but many of our guests were able to find the walleyes stacked up on the humps pulling spinners.  Gold and green crawler harnesses are working the best.

      In Canada, working a slower presentation such as a lift and drag technique has been most effective.  Limits of walleye are being caught using gold and chartreus colors in 18-22 ft.  Key areas have been Deepwater Bay, Monkey Rocks and the west side of Falcon Island.  Smallmouth fishing has been heating up as well, using a jig and plastic on the rocks. 

      We hope to see you soon!

      In Minnesota, walleye fishing has been fantastic! Using a jig and minnow or a bobber rig, walleye can be had anywhere from 3-15 feet in the evening and 18-25 during the day. Pink and white, chartreuse or blue and white jigs have been the most productive.

      Canadian walleye are being found a little deeper at 22-26 feet. Many nice fish were caught this last week, multiple 26-28 inch and a very nice 30 incher. A jig and frozen shiner is the go to, however a freshly dead fathead works equally as well.
       
      Surface water temps are in the high 50’s at sunrise, reaching mid to upper 60’s by evening after this sunny Memorial day weekend!

      On the last day to target predator species during this Ice Fishing season I went out on Lake Vermilion. I setup for the morning on a break where I usually catch Walleye's with a few Yellow Perch mixed in but on this outing I caught mainly Jumbo Perch! Plus one bonus fish that took me over 4 minutes to get up the hole...

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Fishing has picked up significantly this week. Minnesota fishermen can be selective of fish kept, as  they have had no problem filling Walleye limits.  17-19 feet will produce late in the day with 21-25 feet being most productive away from structure during mid day. Pink, white and gold have been most productive all around. Glow or UV have also had success during cloudy conditions if charged often.

      Canada continues to give up Crappies between 25 and 32ft, still with a light setup and electronics. Many tulibee and the ocassional whitefish are being caught while crappie fishing.  Walleye in Canada on points and reefs remain easy to catch.

      We still have plenty of ice on the Minnesota and Canadian side and trails are still being groomed. 

      March is a great time for a last minute trip to the Angle!

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick
