Wind and rain have been rolling over the big pond for the last week but it hasn’t slowed the fishing at all! If anything the fishing has gotten better!  Typical fall walleye patterns are forming.  Walleyes are starting to move back toward the gap and the river. The deep water basin trolling bite continues to be very good.  33’ or deeper, the schools are scattered all throughout the big lake.

The spinner bite continues to be great.  You can’t go wrong with a hammered gold spinner tipped with a crawler.  Walleyes are starting to move back to structure. Drifting or trolling on top or adjacent to rock structure is a good way to target walleyes.

The jig bite is still good out in 30’-32’ but is spotty at times.  Be looking for this bite to pick up in the next few weeks as the temperatures continue drop.  This bite will start to ramp up out deep and move shallower as we get closer to October.


 The bite is on!
