I have also fished with Dan Schmidt (fishing guide) and I can’t say enough good things about his willingness over the years to share with us great spots to fish on the MN and Canadian side in the winter and summer months. I’ve also fished with Dan in Florida now that he spends most of his time now based in the Punta Gorda and Matlacha, Florida area. Recently, I took my family to Fort Myers and my two young daughters and my wife went out with Dan down there and we all had a blast catching snook, drum and snapper! The kids loved all the action and my wife and I caught our share as well! If you want a great guide experience in MN/Canada on Lake of the Woods or in Florida near Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda; call Dan Schmidt!!
You want the best experience from a resort on Lake of the Woods in the NW Angle; the only place to call is Sunset Lodge on Oak Island!! I can’t wait for the next trip!! – Chris L
"Employees are very friendly loved every momment we were up there I can;t complain about a single thing other than wasn't able to use phone but honestly I dont care, went here to get away from drama to fish and relax and caught one of the biggest perch of my life just right off the beach of this resort." - Matt L
