Between the Lake and the River…

…walleyes are being found.  Limits of walleye and saugers have been caught in the areas by Garden Island and Little Oak. Hammered gold spinners tipped with a leech or a crawler have been effective in 14’-24’ water. The areas outside of Pine Island or Zippel Bay have been producing the walleye bite as well.  The depths between 24’ and 30’ seem to give you the best chances of the bite.  Jigs with frozen shiners have been producing the best action.  On the River, get to the 14’-20’ areas and walleyes can be found.  Jigs with shiners have been the most effective here as well.

Fall is in the air. The current water temperature is 59.7 degrees. We have started to see the walleyes move in shallower and up river. The stage is getting set for the annual emerald shiner run. Where shiners run, walleyes are sure to follow. Fall fishing is a great time!  Fall is also a great time to experience the changing of the seasons and the changing of the colors.  Nature’s palette can provide an excellent backdrop to all of your fishing pictures. The Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources Fall Color Finder is a great resource to find where the colors are at.
Mother Nature likes to toy with us in the Fall.  One needs to be prepared for any type of weather during this time.  The weather forecast looks to bring us temperatures in the high 60’s to the high 70’s and SUN.  There are a few days with rain forecasted and winds look to remain steady between 8 and 11mph.  The best advice is to dress in layers and be prepared for anything!!
Because we are still in the midst of repairing our docks from this summer’s high water, only some of the boat slips are rentable.  They are on a reserved-basis only so please call the front desk at 1-800-862-8602 to find out if there is one available.  However at this time, there is no electricity at the docks so please keep that in mind when wanting to reserve a slip.
