Despite the cool down…

…fishing has been hot.  Walleyes have been found either close by or far away from the Lodge.  Drifting with spinners near or around Garden Island in any direction in 15’-25’ depths have been producing limits of walleyes/saugers for anglers.  Also effective has been in 20’-30’ water in front of Zippel Bay, around Pine Island or in the Lighthouse Gap.  Jigs tipped with frozen shiners are producing the best chances of garnering your limit of walleyes.

This last week was some of the nicest weather we have had all summer.  But change is in the air.  The water temperature is currently 61.5 degrees but with the air temps forecasted for the mid-40’s to low 50’s this week, a cool down is inevitable.  That, in turn, will set the stage for the annual emerald shiner run. Where shiners run, walleyes are sure to follow. Fall fishing is a great time!

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.
