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!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
