Highly recommend Sunset Lodge, will definitely be back.” – Casey P

We are finding quality walleye and sauger in 20-24 ft, with the best method being to acctract them in with a rattle bait such as a rippin rap or buckshot. Our houses with the best numbers have been ones in 28 ft. or deeper. When no fish are being marked, it is important to aggressively rip baits 3-4 feet, then slow the action as fish appear on screen.
The attitude of a walleye can change from house to house, where one shack has all the action on a deadstick, the next house can get most bites by jigging. Angles who reasses their presentaion daily will put more fish in the pail.
Pike from 22-44 inches are being caught on live or dead sucker minnows. Bring up some suckers and place tip ups on or near rock structure and watch flags fly!
The Ice Road from Warroad is open and in great shape.
Join this weekend on a SPECIAL Valentine's Day day pass for only $75 round trip per vehicle.
Snowmobile trails are being groomed consistently and are also in good shape.
Come visit us on the 27th of February for the Edge Rider’s 20th Annual Snowmobile Rally!

"We wanted to thank everyone at Sunset for making our trip so great. This is our 2nd year at your resort and we couldn't be more happy with the experience. Cory and Chandler did a great job getting us on fish and checking in with us. The food was excellent as we experienced last year. Just can't thank you all enough for making our trip memorable.
Thank you - Jim K"

"Forgot to send pics from last weekend.Thanks for the great time. A 25.5 inch and a 25 inch."- Dan A
Walleye fishing is excellent but walleye catching can be challenging with atmospheric pressure rising and falling. Our best houses during unstable times have been away from the break lines in softer bottomed areas. A true deadstick with light tackle will out preform most presentations under these conditions. Currentley we have stable, high pressure forecasted though the weekend and action is really heating up!
Rappala Rip’n Raps, Flutter spoons and Perch talkers in pink and white, green, chartreause and gold have been providing best results. Houses are currentley being brought back to breaklines anticipating a strong bite this weekend.
Snowmobile trails are in good condition considering we have had little to no snow for weeks. The Ice Road from Warroad will not be completed for weekend travel but we are crossing our finger that it will be ready early in the week.
GUESTS: As soon as the ice road opens, we'll email a link to get your ice road pass and all the details!
