Beautiful fall weather started out the week and it sounds like the balance of the week will be the same. Cool nights and warm days. Up next, fall colors, emerald shiner run and changing walleye patterns.
A mixed bag of approaches for targeting walleye has been working this week. Pulling crank baits in the mud and along rocky points in 11’-12’. Bait fishing in 20’-25’and 38’-40’ along rock edges with a minnow and gold spinner too. For an evening bite, bait fishing with a minnow and 3/8 oz jig along Pine Island and Morris Point in shallow 8’-12’ has been very successful.
Don’t count out the sturgeon!
The lake sturgeon season to keep one is only open for one more month. September 30 will mark the close until next spring. These dinosaurs of the water can put up quite a fight so if you are looking for a challenge or would like to extend your day of fishing, ask about our, Guided Outfitter trips. We have a few eighteen to twenty-foot Lund boats that work great for sturgeon and northern pike fishing in the river.
Check out our fall specials and book your fall charter or outfitter trip. Soft water trips are available until late October. We can accommodate groups of 1-200. Reserve one of our packages that include 2 nights lodging, guided fishing, use of gear and meals starting at only $188 per person.
