The Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge is Surrounded by Water, Wildlife and is Located Right in the Heart of The Walleye Capital of the World.

Sportsman's Oak Island Lodge

38 miles from the Main Lodge, Sportsman’s Lodge near Baudette, MN  is the secluded Oak Island Lodge. It’s on the same island as our Eagle Ridge Lodge. It’s not uncommon to see bear, moose or a whitetail deer swimming when you’re out fishing. If you like nature, you’re going to love our Oak Island lodge.

This undisturbed remote island is a place where nature thrives. It’s filled with bald eagles, deer, bear and the fishing is undoubtedly world class. In this part of the Lake of the Woods, there is abundant population of Walleye, Sauger, Northerns, Muskies, Smallmouth Bass, Perch, and big Slab Crappies. Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources has determined this to be a World-Class Fishery.

“From the Oak Island Lodge and Eagle Ridge Lodge, we fish more in Canadian waters and catch a greater variation of species than we do from the Main Lodge. We catch a lot of the big Muskies that can get over 60-inches. This lodge has the feel of a fly in lodge, it is tucked away in nature, it’s amazing,” said Sportsman’s Lodges, Co-Owner, Gregg Hennum.

The perfect day starts and ends here . . . wake up to a big breakfast and then head off for world class freshwater fishing. Whether you’re fishing for big Muskie or hauling in Walleye, you’re gonna catch fish! 

Reminder to our Oak Island guests.

Reminder to people driving up to the Northwest Angle/Oak Island this summer to our island resorts. Due to the Avian Influenza Outbreak in Ontario, raw eggs and raw poultry are not allowed to be brought across the border at this time. These products can be purchased in Sprague, Manitoba once you enter into Canada. If you are going to the area via our passenger service from Baudette/Sportsman’s Lodge to the Northwest Angle and Islands this does not apply to you as you stay in the United States the entire trip and do not cross any international borders. http://inspection.gc.ca/…/t…/eng/1389630031549/1389630282362
