Hey there folks, checking in from Sunset Lodge on beautiful Oak Island in the Northwest Angle on Lake Of the Woods. Hope everyone had a great week!

Here in the Angle, Mother Nature has shown us her many faces in the way of strong winds, drenching rains, bright sunny days, and one more bug hatch this season! Aside from all that our guests were still able to enjoy their time with us and get in on some fantastic fishing!

In Minnesota waters, the water temps are ranging between 73 to 75 degrees. Anglers are finding walleyes and saugers in the mud areas around four blocks and Little Oak Islands. Bottom bouncers and spinners w/ crawler harnesses have been the ticket for these dog days of August. Boats are working depths of around 30 to 40 feet during the heat of the day, and gradually moving shallower in the afternoon heading towards evening. Other areas worth checking out are the mud areas around Soldier point, again working spinners and bouncers in this area as well. Hot colors have been gold, orange,pink and green.

On the Canadian side, boats are finding walleyes up near Skeet Island, Monument Bay, Big Narrows, and Deepwater Bay to Tug Channel. The mud flats in these areas adjacent to reefs and humps has proven to be the best areas to target. Working raps, spinners, and jigs in the transition areas has proven best. Depths to target are 22 to 30 feet. Orange has been a hot color as the fish have been feeding heavily on crayfish. Musky fisherman have been finding fish on wind swept rock points and reefs. As well as boulders adjacent to weeds and deepwater. Casting bucktails, topwaters, and stickbaits has raised plenty of fish, and caught several others. Fish in the 40" plus range have been a common report, as well as some giants up near 50"!

Until next week folks, have a great week, and be sure to book your next family fishing adventure with Sunset Lodge!

Hello folks, checking in from Sunset Lodge Resort here on beautiful Oak Island in the Northwest Angle. Hope you all had a fantastic week! Here in the Angle, summer is quickly winding down and fall is just around the corner. So make sure to come up and stay with us and enjoy the awesome fishing we're having.
 
On the Minnesota side of the lake, the water temp is between 75 and 78 degrees. Anglers are doing well targeting walleyes and saugers using spinners and bottom bouncers in the mud and reef areas near Little Oak, Four Blocks and Crowduck Islands. Depths of 20 to 30 feet have been the best. Use crawlers, leeches and colors of gold, orange and pink to turn fish. Boats are also turning to downriggers and leadcore trolling crankbaits to target fish that are hanging in the deep water to get away from the summer heat.

On the Ontario side, Muskie fishing has been heating up as several reports of fish being seen and caught have been coming in. Evenings have been best, casting bucktails, topwater and stickbaits around small rock islands, reefs and points with deep water nearby. We've had several fish this week landed in the 45" to 50" range. Will you be the one to catch one that tops 50"? If it's walleyes your after, check out the areas around Deepwater Bay and Garden Island. Pulling spinners and crawlers in the deep mud and reefs have been producing fish in 25 to 30 feet. Other notable areas have been Tug Channel and Big Narrows. Work the mud in these areas with spinners to put fish in the box.

Until next week folks, take care! And be sure to plan your next outdoor adventure with us here at Sunset Lodge!
