"Another successful October Muskie trip to the Northwest Angle with good friend, Muskie hunter Travis Nelson. Shoutout to Joseph Cooper, Muskie guide extraordinaire and Sunset Lodge for taking good care of us." - Lyle Hicks
"Our trip to Sunset Lodge was great.
Everything was perfect, from the dock hands to the kitchen staff, the food and the cabins.
We were fishing muskies, and although we only got four, we got some big ones! I can’t wait to get back there again next year.
The pics are me (Dan) with a 53 incher, me again with a 41”, Wayne Cole with a 36”, and Wayne with a 45”. The last pic is blurry but we got to see some northern lights, too.
Thanks again for everything!"
Emmitt is my nephew/godson and is 12 years old and he LOVES to fish. His dream has always been to fish Lake Of The Woods.
Today he caught perch, his first ever sauger, a personal best 23 inch walleye and was the “Assistant” of Nolan’s when they got a 40 inch Muskie on LOW right outside of Sunset Lodge.
Many of you know that Nolan works up there, and it truly is one of the most beautiful resorts, with the best fishing, the most amazing food, and the friendliness staff that you will ever meet. When you are up there they truly treat you like family (even when you are not.)
I personally don’t know a 12 year old kid that knows as much about fishing as this kid, and I know for a fact that any fishing guide out there would take him fishing. . . And invite him back any time. He is kind, respectful, knowledgeable, and just an all right amazing kid. I’m sure that he will go to bed smiling (he hasn’t stopped all day) and will be ready to put the pole in the water first thing in the morning.
"Another awesome week at Sunset Lodge! The staff and accommodations are second to none! See ya next year!"
