The soft water fishing continues

Warm weather and a healthy bite have been enjoyed by anglers this week. The best fishing has been experienced up river from Sportsman’s Lodge about 3-4 miles by the Wabanica Church. Sixteen to eighteen feet of water has been the best depth using a 3/8 oz jig tipped with a shiner. Most of the walleyes being caught have been in the fifteen to twenty-two inch range a great size for the pan. The best time of day has favored the late afternoon 3pm – 6pm time frame.

There are still reports that the lake bite up by Knight Island is still producing nice walleyes as well if you are looking to take a boat ride.

A recent happy customer writes…


“I just wanted to say thank you for a great weekend.  Our crew was up from Oct 22nd through Oct 26.  We were registered under the Hummel party.  We caught an unbelievable amount of fish and had an excellent time.  We went through 25 bags of frozen shiners in 3 days of fishing. Thanks Again, Bob”

Ice Fishing is just a month out!

Some of the bays have iced over but the temperatures will have to dip down and stay down to make any real ice. Have no fear, it will soon be here! As soon as we get a ten day stretch around the zero to ten degree range we will be fishing! Now is the time to get your reservations in. December is the best month to reel in a trophy walleye.

North woods Holiday is here! “The Deer Hunt”

The whole town is lit up, with orange that is! You can’t go anywhere around here without seeing a bright orange something. Warm temperatures over opening weekend had some hunters in a bit of fowl mood, but it sounds as if the deer have been moving around a bit more in the recent days. It looks as if the temperatures will be falling by the weekend, so get your gun ready. Rifle season is open thru November 22 in our area and Muzzeloader is open November 28-Dec 13. We have 66,000 acres of Beltrami State Forest right out our backdoor and fantastic fall rates! Call us today.
