Sept 13th Fishing Report

Fishing Report

The walleyes are transitioning to their fall pattern. They have started to move back to their spring spots. They are also responding to a jig and minnow presentation as well as rigging. Although we are marking a lot of fish getting them to bite has been a challenge. Wind sweep points as well an 9-11 foot shorelines have produced really nice fish with most in the 16-22 inch range. So even though the numbers are not in full fall swing the size is. Try deep shoreline edges in Walker Bay with a rig and minnow (Chub) or crawler for a trophy type fish. I have had better success with rainbows vs fatheads. Jigs with blue or orange/yellow are a good place to start. The perch are just showing up in the narrows and should be in their other usual spots later this week as we are looking at some cooler nights. Water temps have now dropped into the upper 50’s and we will soon be in full fall mode.
