The Fireworks woke up the fish Wow! It must have been the fireworks that woke up the walleyes. Fishing has been great all year, but in the past recent days the fish have really kicked it up! The weather has been stable and in a look ahead to the forecast it looks like the next 10 days it will continue! Anglers have been catching many nice walleyes in the sand and rock bottoms around eighteen to twenty-two feet of water. A gold spinner, bright colored jig are the hot lures tipped with a leech or worm. Watch for the Muskie reports to start reeling in a few weeks when they start to really snap.
A limit of walleyes and plenty of eater walleyes between fourteen to nineteen inches are not hard to come by in a few days of fishing. Come for the fishing and stay for the fun on beautiful Oak Island, MN.

Oak Island to host the Relay for Life, Island StyleThe American Cancer Society, directed by Patti Swanson is planning an island style Relay for Life Aug 8. Luminaries are being sold for $10 in honor of a survivor or in memory of someone that was close to you that fought the battle with cancer. Instead of the traditional relay for life walk or run, many island teams are pulling together to raise money for this event and will unite to light luminaries and put them at the end of each teams dock the evening of Aug 8. It will truly be a sight! Every dollar raised is a step closer to finding the cure! To donate, go to www.relayforlife.org/kittsonmn and click on donate then search by team with keyword Oak Island. Sportsmans Oak Island Lodges team this year is the Bobbies Bay Bobbers. Aerial photos will be taken and posted on the Sportsmans website shortly after the event.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
