I've already had a couple of 200 plus fish days, seen

more big fish caught already that in most fall seasons

and there are 3 or 4 real good weekends left to fish on

open water.

Once in a while the wind blows so hard you cant fish the

lake, The water gets stirred up and that slows things

down for a day or two, the current is moving the river

pretty fast the last week or so and that makes it tough

to fish the easy spots on the river. Fishing jumping in

the boat isnt a lock every day, but fish populations are

through the roof on LOW right now and the numbers of biggees

is way up too.

Fishing is excellent! You get your family bundled up and

anchor in 14 to 19 feet of water in the Morris Point Gap

with 3/8ths or 1/4 ounce jigs and live or frozen shiners

and it'll be your best odds of the year for out of this

world, one right after another Walleye fishing. Be Patient

it sometimes takes a while for bites to start.

The weather is the gamble...good luck

      I've had my boat freeze in the lake before.  Not fun chiseling it out before winter.  Heading up this weekend for one last soft water trip, unless the water temps are still warm and I dare leave the boat in for deer hunting.

      I've been caught with a boat of snow more than once.  I'll be up there fishing at least a couple more weekends before I pull the plug on open water.  I've still had pretty decent luck every weekend, but the method I caught them has changed most every weekend.  I've caught them on lead core, rigging with large minnows, and jiggin raps.  I already can't wait until spring!

      Thanks Dick! Always hate to pull the boat for the season but hate it even more if I get caught with a boat full of snow! Cliff

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a public informational meeting to update interested citizens and anglers on the reproduction study recently completed on Fish Lake Reservoir.  The study involved three years of stocking marked walleye fry to assist in determining the contribution of spawning stocks, natural reproduction, and survival of eggs and fry in Fish Lake Reservoir. These study results will help inform future fish management decisions for Fish Lake Reservoir. The meeting will be held on November 1, 2016 at 6 p.m. at Fredenberg Town Hall, 5104 Fish Lake Road, Duluth MN. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
