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 Staff
