Duck Bay Lodge sits just North of the Minnesota border along the banks of Hay Island in Sabaskong Bay and on the shores of Lake of the Woods. The lodge is easy to access by car and then a seven-mile boat ride to the lodge. The docking area is Morson, Ontario. The lodge sits just 70 miles from International Falls making it an easy drive from most of the Mid-Western States. Flying to the lodge requires a flight to International Falls, and then either renting a car or using a van taxi.

Guests are housed in one or two bedroom cottages that sleep four-six people. Cottages are outfitted with linens, blankets, and towels. There is a three-piece bathroom, heat, electricity, a refrigerator and coffee maker. There is also daily maid service.

Fishing with Duck Bay Lodge

Fishing includes guided and unguided fishing. Guided fishing includes fish processing and shore lunch preparation. The ratio is usually 1:2 for guided fishing. Expect top-tier guides with an intimate knowledge of the lake and the fish that reside there.

Expect your fishing options to include:

Northern Pike
Smallmouth Bass
Lake Trout
Fishing is done from 18-foot Lund boats with motor, depth finder, landing net. The boats are set up with flat carpeted floors, padded swivel seats making fishing comfortable and relaxing. There is a live minnow bucket for those who like to use live bait.

If you have never fished for Muskie, you should. They are huge fish. They are not easy to catch so most people give up on them. They are known as the fish of ten thousand casts, and that is a fair appraisal of their tactics. They are lurkers, like Northern Pike. They have a huge mouth, and they gulp their prey whole. They are difficult to catch with a fly, but they do well with spin casting. Tuck a few Red Eye Spoons, Cherry Bombs, Jerk Bait, and Reef Haugs into your tackle box along with a couple of steel leaders. Once you fight a Muskie, you will never be the same.
