Sportsman's Lodges, Where to Go
if You're Goin' for Walleye
Sportsman's has Three Locations in the One and Only Walleye Capital of the World.
Alongside the nation's fifth largest lake, the Lake of the Woods is the Walleye Capital of the World. Catching fish here is easy because we take care of everything: accommodations, meals, licenses, rods and reels, bait, tackle, fish cleaning and our guides will put you on the fish (and tell good stories too)! All you have to do is show up!
Just south of the U.S. and Canada line is a Walleye, Muskie, Sauger, Northern Pike, Perch, Crappie and Rock Bass feeding frenzy. When you visit any of Sportsman's three locations; Sportsman's Rainy River, Eagle Ridge and Oak Island, regardless of the season, temperature, barometric pressure or any other factors...the Minnesota fishing here is legendary. From one season to another the only thing that changes is our approach, but the results are the same at Sportsman's in Minnesota, a great catch!
When you're here hauling in Walleye after Walleye, you'll see quickly why this is the The Walleye Capital of the World. There are also plenty of Muskie, Sauger, Northern Pike, Perch and Rock Bass depending on which location or time of year you choose to come.
I have been coming up there for over 20 yrs. We had a great time. The fishing was great. Darryl was a really good guide. The shore lunch was great. Your food there is always excellent. This turned out to be one of the best trips there and it is always a treat. Thank-you!
