Put in at Prescott WI the morning of October 6th and fished hard from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Hoping to find walleye and sauger in their fall feeding frenzy...but I guess a bit early. Not exactly my favorite conditions with high water (no wake), the water temp at 60 degrees...and very windy! Caught about a dozen or so small walleye 12"-15" and a few small sauger. All 18' fow or less. Talked to a couple guides and they all believe the fall bite will not start until the end of October or early November. I can wait and hope the river drops. Good luck!

Went early Sunday morning to avoid most of the heat...and the pleasure boaters. Caught fish almost every where we tried, but we mostly kept between the rail road bridge and the boat landing. Quite a few boats where anchored near the railroad bridge which made the drifting a bit tricky. Caught close to 30 sauger...no walleyes again. Fish were much smaller today with only a couple over 16". We caught fish on firetiger and gold 3/8oz jigs tipped with minnows, but the best bite was with the Vibrato baits again. Didn't really matter what color, but the gold Vibrato was our main color. Tried a chartreuse jig with a chartreuse 4" ring worm and the fish liked that too. I really don't think it mattered much. There was 5 or 6 spots where we would often get doubles. A father-son team were trolling lead lines all morning and had over 30 with a couple in the 20" range by noon. A good day, but glad to be done by noon....as it got REALLY busy!
