Flagship!

I would stay right in Sunset Bay and Doe Island reef area. I would concentrate on the these area’s this time of year. With the cooler temps in forecast, I would tend to drift over structure in no more than 15 feet of water. The bait could be tricky! Obviously, musky’s have there own thing ( bright flashing large plugs or large fake minnows and casting). The walleyes act to different baits this time of year. I learned in early September from my grand father about frogs. This seemed to work in shallow areas in late summer to early fall. I have not tried this for many years, but could work. If not, the leach or crawler always gets a walleye in the boat.

If shallow is not working, there is always Shaws reef or out off of Big Point reef. If that is not working, try three mile or structure in between.

Mark fish, then fish!

When you get up there, ask local bait store about whats up. Do not ask the cashier, ask the guy or girl filling your bait bucket. They might tip you off on rainbows or fat heads. Who knows?

The main thing is have fun!

If you see Capitan Hook in his launch, ask him were they are biting grin.gif

Good Luck!
