9.18.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report

Hello from the Northwest Angle!

This week we experienced temps in the low 60s and a lot of wind. Surface water temps have dropped to the upper 50s making it to the low 60s by evening. Fall foliage is in effect and fishing is phenomenal!
Minnesota walleyes can be located rather quickly with a Rapala or good electronics, then jigged up with pink/white or gold, tipped with a shiner or fathead anywhere from 17-24ft, shallower in the evening.

Canadian walleyes are being caught by crappie anglers. Many crappies are being found schooled off of larger protruding points, fooled by a jig and minnow setup. The biggest walleyes are still being caught by Rapalas in 10-22, including our biggest walleye of the week; a dandy 29.

Big fish were falling to jerk baits early in the week, with blade baits bringing more fish to the boat recently. Traditional shallow, wind-blown rocks with access to deep water nearby have been the most productive spots. The largest guest fish this week was a beautiful 50 Muskie with a couple more at or near 4 feet.

We hope to see you soon!
