Few more weeks of fishing in boats
Anglers are still launching boats and reeling in some walleyes. A few more weeks of fishing in boats and then we should start seeing some ice forming to get us ready for an early December ice fishing start. We start ice fishing with 10-12 inches of safe ice. Our typical start date of our winter ice fishing season is by the first or second week in December. The ice can form quickly when the temperatures cool down. Once we get down to zero degrees or less we can make an inch of ice a day.
This week’s bite has been good and the cooler it gets the better we expect it to get.
Current water temperature is 43 degrees. The best bite has been outside the Light House Gap and Morris Point Gap in 22’-26’ of water using pink and gold jigs or spinners tipped with a minnow. In the Rainy River the best bite has been at first light in the morning for a few hours and just a few hours in the evening before dark in 14’-19’ using pink and gold jigs or spinners tipped with a minnow. Wheeler’s Point, Wabanica Bay, just out in front of Anchor Bay Trailer Park about 3 miles west of Baudette, in front of the Baudette airport just on the west edge of Baudette and Clementson Rapids area have all produced some nice walleyes. Our guide boats are all put away for the season but lodging and docking is available if you would like to go out on your own.
