Emerald Shiner Run Update

We have a good amount shiners now showing up in the river, but the walleyes have not migrated south yet. When?? Good question? Colder weather is moving in starting today that may push them south. Only Mother Nature really knows but, it will for sure happen soon.


Fall Walleyes

The bite will no doubt start to move south soon but as for now the best fishing has been found around Knight and Garden Island. Your best bet is to find twenty-five to thirty-two feet of water, jigging with a gold, pink or orange jig or hammered gold spinner tipped with a minnow.  A few have reported they have been catching some nice walleyes around Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach and Long Point in depths between fifteen to twenty feet of water with the same presentation, but the best reports have been north as of early this week.


Best Sharp Tailed Grouse Season in years!

The DNR states that we are in a region with the highest drum counts in the state this year and area hunters are agreeing.  Lots of birds are being seen despite the bulk of the leaves still on the trees.  It sounds like the temperatures are going to start dipping to the thirty-two degree mark starting tonight and continue that way for the next week, watch the leaves fall and the birds to really be seen! It’s is going to be great! Come and explore the Beltrami Island State Forest right out of our back door! Over 66,000 acres to explore!


Waterfowl & Late Goose Season in full swing!

Lots of geese are being seen. Call Eric from Quack Addicts Hunting Guides to book your trip today. 218-395-0030.
