Starting to see the fall walleye patterns starting on all area lakes. Been a cool week and water temps have dropped to 50 degree range. On Waska, jigs and minnows during the day. Sunset go to shallow running cranks. The area lakes are mostly a minnow bite. Crappies are hitting on the north end of Osakis. No other reports of fish being caught.
Still waiting! Water temps in all area lakes remains in upper 60's. For a good fall walleye bite we need water to be in mid to upper 50's. Keep checking this report as I will update if walleye bite is consistent.
Report is the same as last week. It has been very warm week,so the water has not cooled very much.
Water is starting to cool down so that means jigs and minnows. Nightcrawlers with spinners and bottom bouncers in 20-24 feet of water is still a good choice. Sun rise and sun set is a good time to try shallow cranks in 6-8 feet of water. No reports on bass or northerns. Sunnies are small but sort them for a meal. Reno is starting to produce some walleyes. As water cools down we will see a good fall walleye bite in all area lakes.
Walleyes are starting to be caught after dark in 6-8 feet of water using shallow running cranks. A few fishermen chasing bass and norherns during the day. Panfish are small and hard to locate. No reports from other area lakes.
Same as last week. Weather was poor with rain and wind. Fall sports has started and vacations are over. Not enough reports to write much. Hopefully next week will be better.
Walleyes are slow. Best to try after dark in 6-8 feet of water using shallow running cranks. Not a lot of reports this past week due to poor weather. Bass, northern,and panfish should be same as last week. Area lakes were very quite.
I don't want to get this wrong like last time, but I think the walleyes have slowed up. Still using crawlers with spinners and bottom bouncers in 8-20 feet of water. Bass are also in 16 feet of water. Crawlers or deep running cranks are the best. Sunfish have also moved deeper. Try 18 feet of water and deep small cranks. Northerns are in 12 feet of water and sallow running cranks will work the best. No activity on any other area lakes.
Was gone for much of past week. Still sounds much like past week's report.
Still good walleye reports for Waska. Crawlers with spinners and bottom bouncer in 18-20 feet of water. Reports have Reno as slow for walleyes. Sunfish, bass, and northerns are all active on Waska.
