2.26.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, Nw Angle Of Low

Recommended Posts

Sunset Lodge

Hello from the NW Angle!

 

Walleye and Sauger fishing on the Minnesota side has been a much more active bite than the previous few weeks.  We are fishing anywhere from 21 to 28 ft. on Jiggin’ raps, Rippin’ raps and Buckshot with glow green and glow red being the most productive colors.  Make sure to have an active presentation to get them off of the bottom.  Dead stick method is still producing during mid-day however, it is helpful to have a jigging line in as well to lure them into the immediate vicinity.

 

Crappie fishing is holding steady east of Oak Island on the Canadian side. Deeper holes (30+ feet) are the target area. Using a small set up with a basic minnow head or plastic will bring them in. The bite is incredibly light so some patience and trial and error is key.

 

We are beginning to see a large amount of slush in our area, keep to staked trails and travel in groups.  After the recent snow storm we are getting snow moved and trails back into favorable condition. Join us Saturday March 2nd for the 18th annual Edge Riders Snow Rally. Support the snowmobile club that keeps our trails in amazing condition and enter to win a brand new Polaris Titan. 11am-4pm at Sunset Lodge!

 

Until next week,

Sunset Lodge

      I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.  with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!

      I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but  Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute.  Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!

      Sounds like several lakes are experiencing winter kills in the Wilmar area this year.  The extent of the kill isn't clear yet but Big Kandi has had some walleye mortality, Lillian appears to have had a significant die off with dead jumbo perch in the shallows, Kasota and Wakanda have a bunch of dead eyes showing up in creeks.  I'd be surprised if it isn't more wide spread than these lakes.

      We were gathering sap yesterday and it was almost knee deep. Areas getting more sun have a foot. Getting through the ditch was hell.
