Had a couple nice outings last week, 2 musky day and walleyes biting like clockwork.  Blade baits, gulp minnow and live minnows all produced on each lake we fished.  One musky came on a sucker, the other on a medusa.  Rewarded with some awesome sunsets for braving some nasty windy days!

Fishing should be great through ice up, our lake is one of the last to freeze come on up!  $95 night lake link special is on through the end of the year!

Great friends and great fishermen.

The pattern is not changing, for now. The below information is the working pattern, for us.
All fish were on minnows and jigs. Rock bars, deeper points and there drop offs is where all fish came from. Most fish were aggressive although the smaller ones were light hitting. Many lakes and the Flowage's have been biting for Walleye for several weeks now and will continue thru freeze up.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

Had to correct last post pic and ad new post, day 2 pics.

Another great client. This guy is the true meaning of the word "Polite."

Couldn't ask for a better family man and or loving husband. Always, he is speaking of his family, cousins and his own joy for the great outdoors.

My hat goes off to you, friend.

All fish were on minnows and jigs. Rock bars, deeper points and there drop offs is where all fish came from. Most fish were aggressive although the smaller ones were light hitting. Many lakes and the Flowage's have been biting for Walleye for several weeks now and will continue thru freeze up.

Many reports of Musky, Walleye, Crappie and some good Perch catches came in to me all weekend long including now as this post is being sent in.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

Fished from 430-730 tonight on the river. Jig and plastic before dark and fire tiger husky jerk after dark produced best. 3 in the slot and 6 shorts. Was kinda nice fishing from shore for a change.

Had to correct the pics for this 2 day event and "post now" for the second day.
After catching on another previous lake we drove by P.I. Lake around noon and was shocked at (as I counted, 13 boats pounding the lake.)

We went to Trout and produced well as (photos show.)  No bumper boats here. Several locations produced well and perfect drifting conditions were working for today's action. A simple jig and minnow and working the structure breaks was best, for us.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

As most Walleye fisherman understand, the "current bite" of today was  hot and heavy. All fish on minnows and most fish were hard hitting, not all but, most. Several locations and several different lakes are working well. I have guided on 4 different lakes the last 4 days and all are producing.

A solid indicator that the fall bite is and has been on and, will stay this way until freeze up. In my opinion.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Northlander, nice smallmouth. I am headed up to the boulder junction area this weekend to fish.

What depths are recommended to run suckers at and how deep of humps should I be targeting for smallmouth and walleye? 

New to fishing the area so any advice is greatly appreciated. Will post report following the trip, thanks to all that reach out. Tight lines.

Fish55555: Musky mortality rates are no where near 50%. Please research the articles written by Fisheries Biologist Jordan Weeks. See attached for more accurate numbers. All muskies should be handled minimally to keep stress low and not wipe off the protective slime. Cut hooks when needed. Keep them in the net in the water until hooks are out and you are ready for pix. If they are too small for pix, then don't even bring them in the boat. Hold on to their tail lightly until you are sure they can remain upright on their own and have rested enough to swim down on their own power. Some fish do die when caught but no where near 50% unless you don't know what you are doing. Join Muskies Inc to get more information on keeping musky fisheries healthy.

Rough week of weather for anglers this past week.  Temps in the 20’s and high winds made targeting most species pretty tough.   
 
It is October (though it feels like November), so Musky is what is on most angler’s minds.  Those willing to brave the elements had good things to show for their efforts. 
 
Musky:  Good – Participation was down, but good reports from anglers who ventured out.  Guide Jake Smith had a nine fish day, mostly on suckers, but jerk baits also working.  Similar reports from the few and the brave. 
 
Walleye:  Fair – Weekend conditions not favoring Walleye anglers due to boat control issues with winds gusting in the 30’s on Fri/Sat.  When able to fish, the deeper lakes producing in 28-40’ using #7 & #9 jigging raps, Lindy rigs or 3/8-1/2 oz jigs and chubs, suckers or even crawlers. 
 
Crappies:  Fair-Poor – Tough conditions, the cooling water temps also seem to have slowed the bite for now. 
 
Northern Pike:  Good – While not being targeted much, some nice Pike in the mid 30” range being caught by Musky anglers 
 
It’s been a cold October so far, water surface temps are in the low to mid 40’s.  Fish, being cold blooded, feeling the affects as presentations need to slow down.  Forecast with highs in the 40’s and lows in the upper 20’s to low 30’s will only keep temps low.  
 
As long as winds stay down, fishing for late fall targets (Musky, Walleye) should remain good.
