"Dawn broke on 5+ inches of fresh snow from the storm on day 2, but nothing could stop Cory from getting us set up on our spots for a chance at a LOTW treasure. Thanks again for an amazing trip!!
Oh, and the shuttle up from Wheelers point was amazing.
Ser you next time, Mike"
"Mother nature huffed and puffed but couldn't blow down the good times. Big thanks to the amazing guides for getting us home in the storm and the resort cooks for making the best shore supper since yesterday." - Mike
The Walleye bite has been incredible during early morning and late afternoon in 15-19 feet of water. We have had multiple groups limit out by 8:30am.
Mid-Morning we slide out to 22-26 feet for a better chance at sauger, jumbo perch and some giant northern pike.
When the Walleye have the feed bag on, any bait offered will be taken. Times of less action require a slower, more subtle presentation.
We are still using lighter vehicles to transport guests to fish houses which are currently sitting on 12- 15 inches but expect to have the bombers fired up this weekend.
As of Tuesday afternoon, there was still open water in areas from Buffalo Bay to the South side of Garden island.
We hope to see a snowmobile trail from the south end staked by next week but still do not advise travel across the main lake at this time.
For now, we are taking reservations for guests arriving by plane!

We officially open Dec 26th.
Hello from Sunset Lodge on Oak Island!
We got ice!
Lower than normal current levels have led to better than average, more consistent early ice conditions in the Northwest Angle. Wind and warm temps have kept the main lake south of Garden Island open until just recently.
As usual, ice conditions are always changing and there remain many areas that are still unsafe for travel. With the cold weather and little snow in the forecast we are likely to see improved and more stable ice thickness across the lake.
Our fish houses are resting on 8-11 inches of ice and are within a 10 minute ride of the resort.
Fishing pressure is low and catching is excellent! We have a very strong morning and evening bite with good action in between. Active fish are smashing rattle baits and most fish will accept a jig and a minnow.
Traffic is low and conditions are ideal for an early ice getaway, we are accepting fly-in reservations starting Monday the 14th! Our runway is marked and is currently sitting on 11 inches of ice. If you don’t have your own plane, we are partnered with Lake Country Air, they are currently flying to us from multiple Northern Minnesota locations
