The best walleye has been around Little Oak on the American side and around Falcon Island and tug channel right on the Canadian side now. Jigging in ten to twenty feet of water tipped with a minnow has brought in the best limits.
Fall is just around the corner which means the fishing will start to get closer too the lodge.
Muskies continue to be found in the weedy bays of the islands. Red and white bait have been producing the most. Fall is one of the best times of year for Muskie fishing.
It wont be long and the leaves will start to turn and the geese & ducks will be flying overhead, a recent sighting of a bear on a nearby island getting ready for his long winter nap this week, and the scenery you only see in books is what our area is all about! Trust me, once you come, you will never want to leave! Sportsman's Oak Island Lodge www.oakislandlodge.com 800-872-8411
I agree with you that the fall season is THE time to nail a trophy and to enjoy the great natural beauty of the area! If someone is looking to catch that big walleye or muskie of the season, or a lifetime, from now until ice up is the time to make it happen.
Here's wishing you a tremendously successful fall season with MANY a trophy eye and ski' !
Great report, Sportsman's Lodge... and I agree with The Fisher about nailing the trophies. I can't wait for the fall colors to pick up. There's something about fishing on a sunny day with blaze red, orange and yellow reflecting off the water.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
