Hi folks,

Recent fishing has been great and it should only be getting better from here. Water temp is at 58-59 on the main lake right now and the water level is still bad to worse.

Musky fishing has been good, many nice fish caught in the tourney this past weekend. My partner and I boated a 38.25 inch and a huge fish that we were stalking attempted to eat my top-water bait with ten minutes to go on day 2!! Of course she missed it by about five inches…maybe next year! Clients and I have been moving fish on cabbage and rocks/sand for the most part. Reed bite has been poor when I have tried them so maybe it is just me or are others seeing it too?

Walleye and jumbo perch action has also been good too. Walleye are scattered at all depths and the perch have been in the 7-11 foot zone. Jigs and minnows or a lindy rig are doing the trick.

If you like big pike now is the time. I have stuck a few fatties as of late with very impressive girths already. Jerkbaits and gliders being the best producers, rubber baits are great too if you don’t mind pike trashing them.

Hope you are all having a great fall! With the baby getting here soon it is harder to get on the pc and do these reports. I will do the best I can though.

      Gave grindstone a try yesterday. I guess the dredging made a difference, but had I not known it happened, I wouldn't have noticed. Was a bad day for my outboard to have carburetor issues, as the wind was blowing much harder than the predicted 7 MPH. Battery got drained pretty quick trying to troll with the electric motor in that wind. Regardless, was still a nice day. Caught 1 little smallie, a 28 inch pike (which was a blast to catch on ultra light tackle), and a nice 17 inch rainbow trout.

      Got out for the first time this year last weekend. Opening morning got my two roosters and then started scouting. I didnt see much for birds all day until in the evening when I saw about 40-50 redheads on one pond. Set up there the next morning with my old man and we got 3 reds, 3 gwt, and a woodie and mallard drake. Next day saw more ducks on that pond as well and ended up setting up there as well the next morning. We shot 5 bluebills and 2 bonus geese that morning. Then shot a nice fat rooster that day and headed home. Im off the next 6 days after today so we'll see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. I will post pics on the other thread when i get a chance.
