Mud, Rock, Sand….Read all about it
Summer heat came back! Walleye fishing has been great! Lots of action! Nice quality 14”-18” and 23”+ too. Trolling with crank baits in the mud 32’-35’ in northern Big Traverse and shallow rock 11’-15’ is working. Drifting and jigging in the evening in the shallow sand near Pine Island 6’-12’ has also been successful.

Lake Sturgeons are active!
Lake sturgeons are biting in the river in the deep holes with current. Anglers have spotted several jumping in the evening hours. Quite the show! Keep one (within size limits, refer to DNR regulations for details) season lasts until Sept 30 and catch and release season is Oct 1-April 23. To keep one you just need to purchase a $5 sturgeon tag and have Minnesota fishing license. Click here for more information on licenses and limits.

NW Angle/Oak Island Lake of the Woods
Fishing Report  

 Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge
Oak Island, MN


Not much change this week, just good fishing!
Hungry walleyes have been found in deep rocky areas in 22’-25’. Dead minnow on a 3/8 oz chartreuse and black jig has worked best. Little Oak Island and areas north around Skeet have been good. The evening bite has been the best.

Pike & Musky
Pike and musky have been found in the deep weed beds especially in the late afternoon using a cowgirl.

Fall is just around the corner.
