Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge

Water is Warming Up
The best approach has been using 3/8 oz. gold jigs tipped with a minnow or gold and pink spinners and a few ounce sinker tipped with a night crawler or leech in 20’-30’ of water on the reefs.  Anglers are also find a few pulling crankbaits in shallow bays as well. The current water temperature has increased to the lower 70’s now. More warm weather in the forecast.

Muskies & Northern Pike
Shallow weedy bays using small baits are working well using a slow retrieval method.
