Report from the Dock

Slowly, anglers are starting to see some fall walleye patterns develop even though water temperatures remain warmer than they should be this time of year. With some cooler weather in the forecast this week, the fall walleye bite should improve quickly over shallow water in most areas. Look for shorelines, points, and structure in 6 to 15 feet to start producing good walleye numbers along with some big fish. Crappies are set up along remaining weed edges or they’ve moved to deep, basin areas and being found suspended – the deep/suspended bite should only get better as the water cools as well. Muskie reports have been mixed with some success being found by dragging sucker minnows or throwing topwater baits.

Leech Lake Report

Walleye action is slowly picking up in shallow water with a jig and minnow around Sand Point, the Annex, and points or shorelines throughout Sucker Bay. Trolling crankbaits around Goose Island in 8 to 12 feet has produced some walleyes as well. Muskies remain active in less than 10 feet on the main lake sand and rock, while anglers continue to sort through perch off Sand Point in 6 to 8 feet. Grouse hunting has been much better than duck hunting this week, although there hasn’t been any new ducks moving in.

Report from the Dock It was a nice weather weekend for fishing and activity was strong in most areas. It sounds as though walleye anglers are starting to transition back to minnows, although crawlers and crankbaits are still producing fish. Water temperatures are cooling down and that seems to keep the fish active for longer […]

Report from the Dock Minnesota is lucky to have so many lakes with bluegills and crappies in them because they’ve really provided the best opportunity to consistently put fish in the boat this week. For the most part, bluegills have bit best during the morning and afternoon hours, while crappies are hitting best each evening. […]

Report from the Dock It seems as though many anglers have finally had enough of the wind and warm weather since the number of people venturing out over the past week really took a downward spin. In some locations, it’s become increasingly more difficult to get bigger boats launched due to low water levels and […]

Report from the Dock Everything tends to get a bit repetitive this time of year and that seems to be the case this week. Fishing reports really weren’t that different this week than last, which again means a lot of fishing activity in and around the weeds. Bluegill and bass reports continue to be very […]
