Default Walleye info for Oak Island(LOW) area

Heading to Oak Island in a couple weeks. Normally we fish for muskies 95% of the time north of Oak in Canada. Since that is not possible, going to fish for walleye a whole lot more. Never fished for anything south of Oak. So would appreciate any help in finding and fishing for walleyes down by Garden, Little Oak, Crowduck, Hay,etc.
Thanks!

My fishing partner and I will be at Flag Island Sept. 5-9. Will certainly report back after our trip. That said, Iíve been reading reports that say crankbaits or spinners over the deep mudflats northeast of Little Oak Island. There are also points coming off Little Oak that might be good spots to look for fish to stack up for some jigging action

Doing some map work, Iím also thinking the mud to rock transitions near the island complex northwest of Little oak. I think that may be called Four Blocks?

Anyway, Iíll let you know what we find once we get back.

Default NW Angle report 9/5-9/8

Just got back from Flag Island Resort in the NW Angle. Weather was really tough. We got totally winded off the lake on Sunday; and Monday we were still fighting the wind, but fished a good part of the day. A cold front that dropped the temps 20+ degrees didn't help either.

We worked hard, and managed to catch enough eaters to eat a ton of fish every single night, and still brought a few fish home each for a meal with our families.

As for fishing info, our best luck came trolling around, or just off the three underwater points off the NE side of Little Oak Island. The humps/reefs south of Oak also produced fish.We caught fish on bottom bouncers with spinners and crawlers when we could control our boat, but that wasn't easy most of the time.

We were fishing from a Lake Superior boat that really didn't like wind (it's like a sailboat when the wind is blowing). That said, due to the weather and the boat we were in, we caught most of our fish in 25 FOW using downriggers down 20 feet, with crank baits 10-15 feet off the ball. We caught fish on a lot of different colors, both straight and jointed, but the hot bait was clearly an orange jointed Rapala.

Hope this helps.

-Bill
