Went out yesterday (12/8) for a last open water attempt and it could be summarized in one word "slow" Fished all day resulting in 5 eyes with none being legal and 2 sturgeon. water temp was right at 32-33 degrees and a lot of skim ice was floating down river. tried jigs, split shots, vertical jigging, anchoring, and couldn't figure them out. The only fish we caught were in one area and didn't mark a ton.

Went out Sunday morning for three hours.  Caught 23 - mix of walleyes and saugers - but only one legal.  Probably lost as many as we caught.  Quit when we ran out of minnows.  Also watched another boat vertical jigging.  They probably had two fish per drift but no keepers.

Sandpike, we didn’t fish very seriously.  Just happy to find a spot out if the wind and in the sun.  Today was a lot of fun.

I have usually found that when most guys were trading their fishing rods for guns, they were missing some of the best fishing of the season.  With the lack of boat traffic and fishing pressure, I would have expected better luck this time of the year.  But, it sure beats raking leaves.

Fished for a couple hours Friday afternoon.  Tried zips, jig & plastic and jig & minnow.

One belly-hooked sauger on a zip, one quillback on a jig and ringworm and one clean-hooked sauger on the ringworm.  No keepers.

Other boats seemed to do okay on plain minnows but I didn’t see any keepers caught.

With the warm weather today, I don't think there will be any ice to worry about if fishing from the shore as long as you are not fishing some back water slack area.  Everything in the main channel should be open.

As for a report on the fishing, I don't know but just before ice up is usually a good time to fish if you don't mine the cold.

Comming to the area tommarrow, was wondering if anyone still having luck from shore spots, if there is any. Thanks

Spent a couple hours today throwing jigs and minnows, minnows, cranks and swim jigs. Ended up with 2 short eyes. Brisk but nice to be out. Eyes came on jig and minnow and minnow.

Nice report.  Glad to see there is still some out getting those late fall Walleyes.  I used to catch some nice stringers of walleyes years ago, but haven't had much luck with "blade baits" for quite a while.  I was beginning to think that the Walleyes were getting smart to them.

Fished out of Rivers Edge Friday and Saturday (11/3 -11/4). Slip jigged jig and minnow and blade baits, also casted twisters. Caught eyes and saugers 6-20 fow. Kept 5 legal fish 15.5 - 17”.

Hopefully back in February or March, heading into the woods next two weeks.
