Its a Oak Island Hat Trick! Check out these pictures! Click here Alex from Nebraska caught a 49 Muskie, 38 Northern Pike AND a 26.5 inch walleye on his recent trip to Sportsmans Oak Island Lodge this week while fishing with Guide Dave Winters. Way to go Alex and Dave! So need I say more the fishing is good and the guides know right where to find them.
Secrets So did is Dave sharing any secrets this week? Well, of course fishing locations and depths tend to change with the weather, season and species and your best bet for a successful day is really to take a guide. But I did get a few tips from Dave for those of you who would like to head out on your own. He said jigging with brightly colored 3/8 oz jigs tipped with a leech or a minnow is still a good technique right now for walleyes and the Massacre Island area has been a hot spot recently. For northerns spoons always work best and muskies crank baits. You can find these elusive fish in several locations within ten miles or less in the Oak Island area. We have several hundred bays to explore and areas around Falcon Island are always good locations to try.
No passport needed Take advantage of our boat passenger service from our Sportsmans Rainy River location and head to the island. You will stay in Minnesota the whole time and enjoy great views to boot. Click here for more information.
Summer is here but wont last long get your family, friends or co-workers together and make a memory today. Take a few days break from work and the rat race and come to the islands, it will be worth it.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
