Sportsman’s Lodge



Fishing is so good we are guaranteeing it!

Yes, fishing this summer has been one of the best years ever and Lake of the Woods is called the Walleye Capital of the World for a reason.  This summer Sportsman’s Lodge is guaranteeing you that you will leave with your limit of walleyes! 100% Walleye Limit Guarantee! All you have to do is fish with one of our guides for a minimum of two days. If you don’t end the two days with a limit of walleyes to take home, we will pay you $10 per walleye less than your limit or find walleye to send you home with! Fish eaten during your stay is counted toward your limit. 

The weather was good for a few days however; it now seems to be taunting us again. Looks like it will only last a couple of days though and then we should be back in to some nicer temps.

No fussy fish lately…

Fishing has been good this week, nice sixteen inch to nineteen inch eater walleyes, along with a twenty seven inch and  twenty nine inch walleye and even a report of a thirty-seven  inch Northern Pike.  The sand bars seem to be producing the best eater size fish, while the trophy fish have been found in the mud. Fishing has been best in twelve feet to twenty feet of water recently along the east and west bar and Little Oak.  Presentation doesn’t seem to make a real big difference lately. Worms, minnows and leeches are all working the same in producing a nice limit. If you are looking for that trophy we suggest using a shad rap.  Once we get back into warmer days, keep your eye on the rock reefs as the walleyes will be on the move.  Talk with your guide about what type of fish you would like to catch and they will be sure to land you on the fish.

If you’re looking for trophies now is the time

The DNR says you have a 1 in 10 chance to catch a 10lb walleye on Lake of the Woods in July and August. Come on out and try your luck!
