Find the food! Fish in this time of year are searching for food

they can range from as shallow as 7 FOW and as deep as 60 FOW. Drill some holes down a break and find those clouds of bait fish with a camera or vexlar.

Ive been catching perch on Ottertail in 45 feet. The bite is very sporadic at least where my house is. Seems to be best in the morning for perch and walleye.....at least thats my experience out there for the last couple of weeks.

Good Luck

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
