Hi folks! Checking in here from Sunset Lodge on Oak Island. Hope you all had a great week! Here in the Angle, we've had some great weather the last week and some fishing that has been absolutely on fire! Our water temperature is between 76 and 78 degrees.
On the U.S. side, fishing has been fantastic from Oak Island, and the
waters south to Four Blocks and Little Oak and Crowduck Islands. Anglers are hooking walleyes and saugers out in the mud in depths from 18 to 30 feet. Spinners and crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers have been best. Colors to use are gold, orange and pink. Down rigging with crankbaits has also been producing lots of fish this time of year. Other areas worth targeting are the south side of Oak Island near Rabbit Ears and the Soldier Point area.
In Canada, muskie fishing has been decent with several fish being seen and several more being landed! We've had a few larger fish caught this week as well with some pushing the 50" and above mark! Cast rocky islands and reefs near deep water with stickbaits, bucktails and topwater lures to have a chance at one of these giants! Walleye anglers are finding fish in depths of 15 to 25 feet on the reefs and the mud areas adjacent to them. Jigs with minnows and spinner rigs are the way to go. Skeet Island, Tug Channel, Big Narrows and Deepwater Bay have all been producing fish.
Summer is quickly coming to a close folks, make sure to book a trip with us at Sunset Lodge before time runs out. Remember that fall fishing and hunting here in the Angle is world class! We would love for you to join us for a trip in September or October. Have a great week everyone!
We'll see ya soon at Sunset Lodge!
