Weekly Oak Island Fishing Report

Island fishing just keeps rolling on as good as ever


Fish are being found in variety of places and are being caught a variety of ways.  Jigging rock structures and shorelines has been putting fish in the coolers.  Chartreuse and pink jigs tipped with a minnow.  Spinners are producing as well! You can’t go wrong with hammered gold.  There are fish on the shorelines and points as well as the humps and reefs.

As well as walleyes fishing, muskie fishing is getting very good.  When targeting these toothy giants, look for the classic spots.  Rocky points and weedy bays while burning buck tails will move the most fish!  Good luck and we will see you out there!



Captain Travis snuck out and did some muskie fishing with Captain Baihly in the angle and it appears that the trip was a success!

The July bite is heating up!


Waters are beginning to clear up in the islands and fishing is improving as well. With the mayfly hatch, the windblown shorelines will be holding fish as well as the mud adjacent to rock reefs and structures. Jigging around these structures is still producing good fish. Pink, gold and chartreuse have all produced. Drifting spinners has been very good. Hammered gold and orange have been the go to colors. There has been no front runner in bait choice; crawlers and leeches both will produce.


The muskie bite is heating up! A fast moving bucktail at shallow weed beds and rock points and structures is working well.  Cover water and contact as many fish as possible! Check out this whopper!


Good Luck and Happy 4th of July Week!

Get up to the islands! Fishing has been great!


Windblown shorelines have been holding great numbers of walleyes.  Drifting spinners has been the best way tactic.   Hammered gold has far out fished the competition.  Leeches seem to be the bait of choice but it doesn’t hurt to bring some crawlers along as well.  Flag island flats are holding fishing in the cleaner water.  It is a large area so be mobile and find the fish!

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!

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!

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!
