Sportsman’s Lodge

No more Ice

The lake is free of ice and the passenger service boats have started to run trips from the lodge on the south shore to the Northwest Angle.

Anglers have been catching some nice pike and sturgeon lately. Check out these pictures and video. We have guides available and dock slips if you want to bring your own boat.

Thanks to Jake and the crew from Adventure Travel Pros for capturing some of the action this week.

If you are looking to get into some sturgeon. Here are some tips. Anchor near or in deep holes with some current in the river or bays and use an 18” snell, 60lb test, 2-3 ounces no roll sinker, and a 4/0 or 5/0 hook tipped with a gob of worms and a shiner. Sometimes it is a waiting game but once they hit, be ready!! For pike, bays are the perfect place to find them this time of year. Dead baits, spinnerbait, spoon, or crankbait are all going to be good options. We have miles and miles of area to explore.
