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!

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
