Weekly Oak Island Fishing Report

The island life continues to be good!


High winds have dirtied the water a bit but the walleyes are still going strong.  It’s that time of year where Flag Island Flats begins to turn on.  Drift hammered gold spinners in the cleanest water on these flats! The jig bite is still going strong on the rocks as well.  Muskie season opened last weekend so if you are making the trek north make sure to pack that heavy gear!


Walleyes, Muskies, Pike, Bass, Crappie, Perch…..Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge is a multi-species mecca. Summer lodging and guided fishing packages starting at $394 per person for two nights and two days. Prefer to fish out of your own boat? Relax in our comfortable lodging starting at only $67 per person per night.  Contact us today. We will tailor a package just for you.  *plus tax and based on double occupancy

Jig & a Minnow


Island times are rolling on as good as ever!  Jig and a minnow are still proving to be the best tactic to target walleyes.  Gold has proven to be the best color week in and week out but pink and chartreuse have been working as well!   Windblown shorelines are holding great numbers of walleyes, as well as perch and pike!
Summer is here and the fish are biting!

Sportsman’s Lodge Oak Island Fishing Report – 6/8/17


The sun is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, you know what that means?  Island fishing!  Fishing continues to be outstanding up north.  Gold, orange, yellow and pink jigs tipped with minnows are still producing great numbers of walleyes.  Vertical jigging over rocks is probably the best way to target these fish.  Rocky points and shorelines continue to be walleye magnets.  Good luck!

Sportsman’s Lodges Oak Island Fishing Report – May 31, 2017


Oak Island fishing has been very good.  Gold, orange, and pink jigs tipped with minnows are continuing to be the best way to target fish!  Good numbers of walleyes, northern, and perch are being caught on the rocky shorelines and points.  18’ to 24’ is a good bet for finding good concentrations of fish!


The Dejong group and Captain Travis spent a few days at Oak Island! These are just a few of the highlights from the days spent living’ the island life!

As it is on the south end, fishing is fabulous up at Oak Island.


Rocky points and shorelines continue to kick out great multi-species action! Pike, perch and walleyes are all holding on these structures! Jigs tipped with shiners seemed to out fish all other baits this week. Captain Baihly and the Meyers group were about to experience this fantastic fishing this week! Make sure you check all the amazing fish they hauled in!

Island fish was great to start the year off!  The walleyes were snappin’ and we even heard of a few big ones being caught.  Gold, pink, yellow, and orange jigs tipped with a minnow all seemed to work very well!  Rocky points and shorelines were holding good numbers of fish.  The fish are in feed mode so get up here and let’s go fishing!

Bill and Jerry had some good luck this week!
