    9/25/17 Hunted the hot, steamy MN duck opener on a public lake in central MN. Could see lightning to the west and north all morning until the sun came up. Must have been some serious lightning in those storms that were 100 miles away. Could still see the flashes, but of course could not hear any thunder. Saturday morning we saw the most bluewing teal I have seen on an opener since the 1980s. Must have seen a thousand teal and hundreds of mallards and wood ducks. Weren't in the best spot since we were the third boat on the lake, but still managed to shoot some teal and wood ducks. Busy watching ducks all morning. The teal I cleaned were migrators with quite a bit of fat--none on the wood ducks. Sunday morning was a different day--most of the teal were gone and the mallards and wood ducks were more wary. Managed two juvenile mallards. Think the shooting and the weather front moving in got a lot of the BWT on their way further south. All in all, a decent start to the MN waterfowl season, especially considering the temps were more like mid August. See what this weather and some cooler temps brings to the decoys this weekend. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

    Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should. Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

    I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

    Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth. Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin. Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me. Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish. Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow. I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

    One goose and one woodie so far today. And will probably be our total count. Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.

    Walleyes still biting on lead core. Most success in 20ft of water, 90 ft of lead, silver #4 deep diving shad raps mostly (although perch also putting a few in the boat.) I have tried jigging raps ernestly but only getting a few small walleyes on those. I haven't live bait rigging yet.

    Yeah we'll see, maybe. I also lost 2 brand new decoys to as the weights didn't hold. I'm doing some digital scouting, might try a lake in the morning. Good luck!

    Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end. On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant Never had that happen on the east end though

    Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better. This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

    Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

    Right now there are lots of walleyes out roaming the basin and leadcore is the most effective way to target them. I enjoy trying to put together a pattern, as each day the best location and lure will most likely change. Also, I have small children and it is any easy way to get them on fish. It helps if you can run 3-4 lines, so you can experiment with lure size, color and depth. Most days you can find a specific color that will out fish the others 5:1. Once you find the winner you can replicate on the other rods and really dial it in. Obviously it helps if you have an extensive collection of shad raps, lure collection can be addicting and expensive.
