Sweet photoes there Walli! Nice to see you are enjoying the surroundings as well as the fishing. Those pics with the early morning fog remind me of a story I heard a long time ago. The jist was that the indians always traveled in reverence during the morning fog because in the mists you could see the vague outlines of the shapes of fallen warriors marching along. Next time you have time just sit and watch out across the water and if you look long enough you will start to see the shapes gliding along the surface in the mist. Another of those small wonders in Gods creation! Thanks for sharing!

1st time posting. Nice photos Walli! Haven't had much luck the last two weeks at Prescott. We tried jigs/fatheads. Last Wednesday gave up and hit the Vermillion. Picked up a few nice saugers. Will try again on Thursday. Any suggestions, Walli?

There's only one master and I answer to Him, without Him there would be no river or fish. Thanks though! I grow up fishing walleyes on lakes only, then about eight years ago I went down to the river, didn't really catch that much but thought, boy is it beautiful down here and as the years have past, I fell in love with the river. The last two years the river has been about the only place I fish, I've put alot of time in and had to change a few things to adapt to river fishing and I still havn't got it figured out, because the river is always changing, its nothing like a lake and its alot tougher but the rewards are even sweeter! grin.gif

Hey Walli1, I've got to agree with you there! I don't fish the Croix all that much but have absolutely fallen in love with the Miss & the Minnesota. Its a whole new game that requires different techniques and a lot of learning and that is what I love about it! Its been tough but definitely rewarding!

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.
