While the wingdams in that area can hold fish, the wingdams around 494 are probably more consistent for walleyes. That said, the wingdams around 494 are also more heavily fished - especially in October and November. When the same wingdams get hit repeatedly, don't be afraid to try new areas.

The fishing is often slower in September, but will pick up through October and beyond. Note too that flows are lower than normal right now, and probably will be throughout fall (unless we get major rain). This will also change where walleyes are holding (wingdams and otherwise).

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time
