Now is a great time of year for walleyes, muskies, smallmouth bass or northern pike fishing near Oak Island Minnesota and the Northwest Angle of Lake of the Woods. The muskies and northern pike have really been hitting on spoons and buck tails, the bass on shad raps and the walleyes are hot on gold spinner or orange and pink 3/8 oz jigs tipped with a minnow.
The best locations for walleyes have been either south of Oak Island in 20’-25’ of water or areas around Tug Channel and Falcon Island around points and in depths between 10’ – 20’. We have recently seen mainly nice good eater size walleyes between 14”-18” caught a few slot fish 19.5”-28” but overall nice size fish for a delicious walleye shore lunch. As for muskie, northerns and smallies…areas on the south side of Oak Island, around Skeet, and the west side of Falcon Island are all good places to try.
