Hello from the NW Angle!
Water temps are still hovering in the mid 50’s.
Jig and a minnow/shiner will fill your live well in Minnesota. Areas of best success, have been between island or high currents spots with depths ranging from 13-16’ or 22-26.’ Fish are really hungry and are packing on the pounds before ice season!
Canadian walleye fishing is also outstanding. Orange, pink or chartreuse with a minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26.’ We have also experienced a lot of perch this week, limits of crappies when targeted, the occasional pike and muskies on the jig.
Musky action on shallow reef tops has slowed as fish are moving out to deeper waters, trolling cranks or jigging big rubber is common practice now. Many small mouth have been seen this week with wounds from predatory fish.
Less than two weeks left of open water fishing at Sunset Lodge, we have some availability remaining before we close down for the season on October 22!
We hope to see you soon,
Sunset Lodge Staff
