2.6.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report
Hello from the NW Angle!
On the Minnesota side, pinks have been producing but it seems as if gold is the hot color of the week for jigging lures and baits. Target depths for walleye have been between 22 and 28 feet. The old school dead stick with a red hook, split shot and a bobber with a full minnow head has been most effective against the lethargic walleye this time of year.
In Canada, target depths are between 25 and 33 feet for the crappie bite, most effective lures being small lip-less crank baits as well as small rippin' raps.
Weather conditions have stayed relatively stable with a few fronts and about an inch of snow.
Be aware: Frozen ruts are still problematic off of groomed trails. Use caution on sleds and ATVs.
