Such is the life…

…of a fisherman these days.  Hot, cold, rain, snow, sun, wind…you name it, we’ve had it.  But despite all of that, limits of walleyes have still been caught.  Jigs tipped with frozen shiners are producing the best chances of garnering your limit of walleyes.  Head over in front of Zippel Bay or around the Gap in around 18’-28’ feet and be ready to reel in those walleyes.  Drifting with spinners near or around Garden Island in any direction in 15’-25’ depths have been producing limits of walleyes/saugers for anglers.

We had some snow and some slush this last week. The temperature looks for highs in the high 40’s to low 50’s with the lows close to freezing.  There is also a chance of rain throughout the week. The water temperature is currently 50.1 degrees so it has dropped 10 degrees from last week’s report. That will surely 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.

The Lapham Hickey Steel Group enjoyed some fall fishing this past week.
