Ike,

When you mean the bite is transitioning from the "lake" to the "river" what do you mean. Sorry if this is a dumb question. Can you give me some general coordinates. what do you mean by "lake" and "river". Thanks.

Ike, can you also comment on the time of day? Has there been a time of day that seems to be the most productive?

ill try to answer your questions.every fall when the water temp.drops the sauger and walleye move up river towards the dam.we beleve the warmer water attracts alot of bait fish and the fish like to put on some wait before winter.morning is probly the best time.but when the bite is real strong like spring and fall ive had great luck all day long.try a brite colored ikes hair jig tipped with a minnow.im going out saterday ill give you a up date then.good luck IKE

Lake = Lake Pepin

River = Mississippi River up to the Red Wing Dam

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
