Walleyes starting to move
Anglers are starting to see the walleyes transition into their fall spots moving from the reefs to points. Fall is just around the corner! We had a group of 4 that caught and yes released 90% of them, 650 fish in 3 days!!! What a trip! Great to hear stories of these to remind us how healthy the fishery is and how great the fishing can be. The best approach to catching walleyes right now is jigging jigs or spinners in 24’-28’ of water using gold, glow in the dark and pink colors tipped with a minnow or worm. Average size of the walleyes that have been caught this week is 15”.
The weather has cooled off from the highs in the 80’s and 90’s to 60’s and 70’s this week. Looks like next week will be in the 70’s again.
Muskies are hungry
Check out these pictures. Joel and Kyle went out the other day and decided to get out of some wind for a bit, threw in a line and caught this beautiful muskie. It wasn’t huge but definitely a nice size and fun to catch. It measured in at 40 inches and was released. The best muskie fishing has been found around points using jerk baits and top water baits. Anglers are also catching some while jigging for walleyes too. Average size has been around 36”.
The best pike bite
Pike have been found using spinner and jerk baits in weedy bays and around points. Anglers are reporting that they have been slow to grab the bait so you need a little patience. Average size is around 28 inches.
Crappies usually start to really hit in late September or October when the water starts to really cool off but we are starting to see some now. ¼ oz jigs tipped with a minnow in 24’-28’ of water around structure has brought in a few.
