The colder weather has brought on some better fishing. Bait is piling up, the fish are easier to pattern and they are getting into feeding mode. Crappies and white bass are good in shallows and breaks. Walleyes seem to be on points and breaks on minnows and rip jigs. Muskies are moving deeper and feeding on shad. The FRV also stocked 450 muskies in this week. Awesome job! Love the fall! Enjoy!

The Northwood was on the water Sunday afternoon from Noon until 4:00 pm on Lake Marie. A nice mixture of stripers, sheep, crappies, a couple walleyes and a few catfish. Used the lime colored 1/32 oz mini-mite tipped with a minnow or a piece of nightcrawler. My fishing mate was using a large white paddle-tail tipped with a minnow and the sheep and stripers were much bigger. I changed to a white and pink mini-mite and found the walleyes very cooperative. We drifted thru 5-8 fow and then moved around to 14-17fow. Small stripers shallow, bigger fish deeper. Great afternoon on the Chain. Tight lines ! IC

The multi species bite was very good this week. Lots of fish on breaks and a good movement to shallow water. Minnows were the top choice for us this week. At times the dead stick out fished jigging. Muskies were very up and down this week. A few nice fish caught but not great action. Some dates are still available for November. It should be a great fall!
