I think the fall bite for walleyes and saugers is on. I had great luck today in the Prescott area with vertical jigging with live bait and plastics alone. In the morning I couldn't keep the saugers off the line. Took home a few for the fryer. Only one walleye was caught today, but it was a dink. Biggest saugers this time around were fat 17"s . Good luck out there y'alls.

I had a decent bite south of the 94 bridge and around Bayport yesterday. Chrome blue #12 husky jerk did the best. Minnows were working too. It appeared some folks had luck with vertical jigging.

Many thanks to Jack for saving my afternoon! I dropped by Jimmy's for some minnows and they had a closed due to medical emergency sign on the door. I only had about 6 redtails left from the weekend. A man named Jack (with a Thorne Bros cap) was gracious enough to give me a couple scoops of his Vados fatties. Funny enough, I spotted Brain from Jimmy's bait on the river fishing. I'm not positive, but I don't think it was the sort of medical emergency that you need to go to the hospital for...

Blueroof.aside from cough! cough! medical emergencies.This time of year is really tough on those small bait shops.You sit all day and sell nothing,I guess thats just part of the business though.That wasnt you sitting on the south side of the swingbridge on Sunday afternoon was it.I came cruising by around 3:30.

Croixeyes - I imagine it does get slow this time of year, especially weekdays. I certainly won't hold it against them, hands down the best bait in Stillwater! Couldn't have been me, Sunday I didn't launch until 3:45 at Beanies, stayed south of the 94 bridge.

This weekend wind forecast looks pretty good, can't wait to get out again!

Hey guys, long time lurker-first time poster. Just wanna say, I love this site. I made it out this past Monday as well. Fishing conditions were near perfect that day. Fished near Prescott and hammered the saugers. All fish C&R'd. It was a great way to "end" the season.

With that being said...can't wait til ice!

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
