Here are some pics of a few fish we caught this morning.

Nice smallies - 19"-21"

These fish were all caught with Ring-N Grubs and jigs.
More info can be seen on the Ring-N Grubs at Catch-N Tackle
Nice Walleyes

It's a very good bite. Some trophies are definitely coming in.

Get up to Clementson Resort for some awesome fall fishing.

Sandee says she has an opening the end of October and a few in November as well.

The bite just keeps getting better all the way to freeze-up now. Look for plenty of 4-6 lb smallies and walleyes over 10 lbs to come roaming in from lake of the woods.

The smallie bite was great!It was fast and the fish were BIG!Paul and I had doubles....both fish were 19" and for the most time that we were chasing the bronze backs you didn't have to make more than a few casts to get hit.They were really gobbling up those Ring-n-Grubs.
This was my first time up to the Rainy.(can't believe I haven't made it before).
I'll be up for some more of that action again.
I want to thank Rick and Sandee of Clementsons.
They are great hosts and are really freindly.It a nice place to stay and close to to some awsome fishing.
Thanks. smile.gif

Can't help but think that the fishing is only going to get better over the next couple of weeks. Think I'll have to sneak back up there again for a couple of days.

Would like to send out a big thank you to Rick and Sandee for putting up with the three of us. You guys are the best. For anyone that would like to squeeze in one more trip this year, give them a call. They know exactly what is going on with the river and will do everything they can to put you on fish.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
