Only days left of extraordinary sturgeon fishing!
A sixty inch sturgeon was caught and released in front of our docks just a few days ago including over one hundred other nice size sturgeons caught during last weekends successful 4th annual Sportsman’s Sturgeon Tournament. If that is not enough to entice you to come wet a line, many reports are coming in that the bite is equally good 4 miles west of town near the Anchor Bay Trailer Park and near Birchdale too. The best bait has been a gob of worms on a decent size hook weighted down with about 3-4 ounces of sinkers.
The sturgeon harvest season continues thru Friday and then you can enjoy catch and release action May 8-15.

The weather has been cool and wet this past week but it looks like we are going to crawl back into a warmer weather pattern starting tomorrow with a slight set back on Friday but then a bounce back up as we head into the weekend with highs in the fifties and partly sunny skies. It looks like the rain will subside for awhile with just a forty percent chance on Friday and then clear skies after that.

Northern Pike…
We have seen some nice pike come in lately from Four Mile and Zippel Bay between fifteen to thirty-five inches in length. A red and white or shiny silver color spoon has been the best tackle choices and depth has been between in weedy bays in eight to fifteen feet of water.

Walleye season is approaching!
Walleye season opens May 15! Get your friends together and book a trip. We are anticipating the walleye bite to be above average. The walleyes will probably be found in the lake more so than the normal locations in the Rainy River due to the higher than normal water temperature. The water level has gone up a few inches or so this week due to the rain fall but still is at least a foot and a half below normal. The water clarity remains very good. Ask about our pay for fishing get free lodging special! Can’t beat that!

Attention all Morel Mushroom Hunters
The mushrooms are starting to show up in the areas around Lake of the Woods. Come on up and get in on the hunt! They won’t last long.

We are busy getting ready for the upcoming season. We will be opening for the season starting May 14 for the May 15 Minnesota walleye fishing opener.

We have had above normal weather temperatures this past April so we are anticipating the early season bite being above normal this year as the walleyes should be done spawning earlier as well. Give us a call to book your summer trip!
