Walleyes continue the fall feeding frenzy! Our problem this past week has been the windy weather conditions. Jigs and minnows are best bet. Fish where ever you can get out of the wind. Reno, Mary, Andrew, Miltona, and Osakis have all been good for walleyes. Also lots of nice crappies are being caught on the north part of Osakis.
Great walleye fishing on Waska that will last until ice-up! Jigs and minnows in 12-14 feet of water has been best method. Hard gravel bottoms such as beaches and points are where to go. The other method for walleyes would be pulling shallow running cranks in 4-8 feet of water. No reports from area lakes, but have to assume Reno,Mary,Andrew, and other known walleye lakes have started.
Very much the same as last week. Walleyes should be more active but has not happened yet. The water has to cool down more. Not a lot of fishing activity this past week due to the miserable weather.
Best results on Waska this past week has been jigs and minnows around the points and hard sandy bottom areas like the beach. 14 feet seem to be magic depth. No panfish reports or other lake reports.
Waska is in the fall walleye bite. Use jigs and minnows or cranks in 4-8 feet of water. Water temp is 60 degrees. Check previous reports for more info.
A real strong walleye bite on Waska using cranks in 6-8 feet of water from 7- 9:00 in the evening!
The fall walleye pattern is becoming more pronounced. Starting to use jigs and minnows around Priest Point. Other method would be crank baits trolling in 3-7 feet of water. Check last weeks report for more info.
Water temps are going down and frogs are starting to move to the lakes. That means an early fall walleye bite is here! Use minnows or crawlers with spinners. The other method would be shallow running cranks. Stay in 7 feet of water or less. Other lakes for walleyes would be Reno, Mary, Miltona, and Ida. Smallmouth bass have been very active on Waska. Sunfish this past week have been easy to catch on Minnewaska, Maple, Pocket, and Freeborn.
Much the same as last week for Minnewaska. Good sunfish activity on Maple and Pocket lakes. Reno is the most consistent lake in area for walleyes. Also getting some big crappies on west side of Reno.
Still nothing to report for northern and bass. Still catching some walleye and sunnies. Use crawlers with spinners on outside edge of weedlines for walleyes. Waxies or small leeches in 12 feet of water has been best for sunnies. Some nice big crappies have been biting on west side of Reno.
