Two adults, Two kids under Five Years old, Two Hours & 16 Walleyes & 5 Saugers!

It is pretty easy to find fish and leave with a limit when charter fishing at Sportsman’s this year. Gregg and his young family went out and had a great time Sunday afternoon pulling in fish, check out these pictures. Book your Minnesota Charter Fishing experience now!

Annual Emerald Shiner Run

The time is soon coming that the emerald shiners will be running the river and so will the walleyes. Just in the past few days we have started to see seagulls out in the river feeding which is one indication that there are some shiners roaming around. Another indication is some local netters have started to see a few in their nets too. It seems to be just the very beginning but stay tuned in the next few weeks the rush will be on! Get your arms pumped up your going to need them.

The who, what, when and where

We are starting to see the fishing start to move in closer to the south shore this past week. Long Point and Zippel Bay have been popular spots bait fishing with gold spinners or jigs tipped with a minnow or trolling with shads of any color in thirty to thirty-five feet of water.

Lake Sturgeon

Few reports of some nice size sturgeon have been heard lately too. The best approach to find these monsters is to anchor in the Rainy River or Four Mile Bay.  These fish are great to smoke the meat or just catch and release they can be a fighter. Don’t forget you can keep one until Sept 30!
