I think I'd be a little "happier" after a catch like that. Why the sad mug?

Ahhh Danielsawn it's on here too eh. More details to be found on the LOTW forum.

SWMuskeye....That is my happy face man! I don't post a pic less they're all the way and then some 30's and I don't crack a smile till they're bumping past the 32 inch mark!!!

Shackbash.....No Cats in the Rainy and this fish is exactly what I was after when I deceided to head upstream and fish some upriver fall haunts with a jig and a minnow. Now iffin you ever make it up here we do have some Gi-Normous Bullheads in the system that'd probably be right up your alley man!!!

Kidding aside, don't hang up your long rods yet guys. The fall bite on the Rainy River and the S shore of Traverse bay on the LOTW is as fine a Walleye fishing as you can find anywhere in the US and Canada if you want BIG Walleyes. There may be easier times and places to get a Trophy Walleye but there is no where better in the fall than right here at the top of the state thats for sure. Miles of uncrowded river and acres and acres out on the lake to spread out over with oodles of hungry Walleyes from Weee ones to Whoppers!

Lot's of BIG fish pulled from the river this past week including a 33 incher which would realisticly go 13+ pounds. Out on the lake early this week 100+ fish days were the norm. Try it once and you'll be back most likely.

Big fish bite just gets better and better as the water temps drop too.....Don't miss out on this bite if you can.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
