"We just wrapped up another full week on LOTW at Sunset Lodge. As always, We received great service on the docks from Travis and Corey. Thanks for your hard work in making the experience more enjoyable.
Fishing- We battled through 20+ mph winds that blew from 4 direct directions over 4 days. The weather is always crazy on LOTW.
Our focus, as always, was the muskies. We did not put the numbers in the boat that have in previous years put the size of the fish was definitely more impressive. The 2 largest fish were 49.5 and 50.25. While everyone seems to have a story of the “one that got away”, we certainly had several of those this week too. Even when the fish were not aggressively biting we continued to raise many large muskies. In fact the overall size of the muskies we were seeing was MUCH larger than the normal LOTW fish we’ve seen in years past. Most fish seemed to be in the mid to high 40’s with several that exceeded 50.
Mike lost one fish that we never got a look at on the first cast Thursday morning. The fish did not head shake or thrash. I just pulled away with as a true giant does. Even the 50.25” caught the next morning did not cheer Mike up much. When Mikes says “Big fish” after the hook set…..you know it’s a big fish. In fact he called the 49.5 and 50.25 ”small” on the hook set.
When our arms got tired we caught plenty of walleyes. We even found time to tag several +15” crappies, that never gets old!
Thanks again Sunset Ledge for making the experience great. See you next year."

“OUTSTANDING! Sam does a great job for you. I noticed more fresh food like fruit with breakfast and salad with dinner that had a good variety of greens. I’m not a health nut but I’m too old to eat the crappy deep fried diet I had in my younger days so I appreciate the fruit and veggies and noticed more of that on this trip than on previous trips. Anyway, things were GREAT and some things were even BETTER than I was expecting. My customers were VERY impressed with the entire operation. You run a great show up at Sunset and your staff performs well (even when you are not around) so good for you. I can’t wait to get back to your place!” -

"Thank you for the making our 2018 fishing trip in June the best. Your resort is 1st class. I would like to get something set up for 2019. We had 6 people this year. Might have 8 or so next season. The boat commute out of Baudette worked so slick. I was really impressed with how well your staff treated everyone. The whole group still talks about what a great time it was. I'd like to get something set up relatively soon as I know you guys tend to book up even a year or so in advance. Thanks again for being such great hosts!!!" - Eric H
"Being first timers there it was more than expected. The accommodations, staff and everything else especially the food was excellent. We enjoyed the walleye bites. We plan to come back next year and maybe use the 15% discount Sunday through Wednesday. Dates haven't been decided yet. How do we go about reserving the same cabin if there is 6 of us? Thanks again." -
