Is this it?

What do you guys think, is it time to put the boat away? Or is it going to warm up again? I spent yesterday a.m. on the water and did a heck of a lot of running, a little fishing and not much catching! Bullhead Butch was out the other night and did well, maybe it's an evening bite. All I know for sure is that I'm going to try an arrow a big buck before the Sno Bear gets fired up!

Good luck gun hunters,

This October has really made me realize how spoiled we've been for about the past 5-7 years in Minnesota. Our fall opportunities seemed to stretch easily to the end of October and into November and it wasn't but a few years ago people were fishing from boats the first week in December out on Gull.

I winterized the other day. Looking forward to Deer and late season roosters! Not looking forward to ice fishing. Can't seem to catch that bug the last couple years.

Good luck deer hunting to all. I saw two bucks in daylight this morning and have seen several nice ones just after dark this past week.

I put the Warrior away yesterday. It was a great season. Seems like the fall bite started in August and lasted through the middle of Oct. then it slowed. 2 1/2 months of steady walleye fishing wore me out a little. Now I'm just enjoying this little break, doing some hunting and starting to think about the winter season. In the blink of an eye it'll be March and we'll be thinking of pulling the boats out and hitting it hard again. Good luck anyone that is still fishing. Right now it is more like an ice fishing bite for the walleyes, concentrate your best efforts during that last hour before dark. I'm heading for the dakotas.

Put the boat away last weekend. Kinda miss the walleye bite. Have been chasing roosters on the weekends and seeing a ton of birds. Hunted a private piece of land last weekend that had yet to be hunted and most have flushed 50+ birds. I have come to the conclusion I'm a horrible shot. I will be back!

Yes, I went out on Pelican last Friday and caught my last walleyes for the season, a 15 and 18, before I got blown off the lake! Tried a little grouse hunting Sat, 1 for 3, not the best shooting either, but at least there seems to be some birds around. Sunday was a great day to get everything including the boat ready for winter. Now this weekend I'm ready for the camaraderie that comes with the rifle season!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
