Launched out of McQuade yesterday. 5 hours, no fish! two pops, but nothing on and no action on the dipsey. Only heard of one boat pulling in 3 kings (from the DNR folks). Going out around 11 today. Hoping it turns back on. Water temps around 45 to 47. Marked fish in 165 fow about 70 to 100 ft down.

The fishing is still real good you just have to get over on the WI line. The water is warm over there we caught fish from the Superior Entry to 10 miles down the line. We caught a dozen kings over the weekend with some in the double digits for weight. I will try and post some pics later.

Northlander,

Are you dragging spoons only or have you put on a couple of stick baits yet? I was thinking of using planer boards soon. I see others out of Mcquade using them, has the surface bite returned with the cold surface water?

Here are some pics from the last weekend on the Baha for the 2012 season. The first two days we fished way down the line with no other boats in sight and there was a good mix of salmon and lakers out there. The last day we fished shallow in under 70 feet of water and found a good mix in there also. The big laker was released to fight another day. Fish were caught from 20 feet down to 75 feet down all the way out to 135 fow. The hot spoon color for me was blue. I couldnt find the walleye out there. Also my riggers were dead most of the weekend. The bite was mainly dipsey and board lines. The last picture shows my Baha meeeting her sister boat.

By the number of boats I saw Sunday morning I was pretty sure everybody knew about the kings smirk

Launched out Rice's Point at 4pm today. Marked a ton of fish in 70 fow. Only had 1 hit in the first hour on Tammy Fay spoon, lost it. Finally got a 5lb laker on the same spoon and a nice size coho on pink and black spoon. Slow night for seeing tons on the screen from 40 to 70 ft down. Great night on the water! Water temp around 52 in most areas.

I have to see what a Tammy Fay spoon looks like. And I'm then going to buy a few just to say I have one. I'm picturing a spoon with eyes with black mascara running down it. I tried googling it but all it shows is Tammy Fay Bakker.

Does the laker season close this weekend?

Lakers close Oct 7th. I must say there is not an ounce of mascara on this! Just a bunch of colors, similar to the wonder bread spoon. I will post a pic of Jim's Flashback Tammy Faye when I figure out how to post pics.

I got it at Gander. Holds 66 spoons, $20. Saves them from banging around, but it is a an awkward size.

Still lots of fish around town. We went 21 for 25 this morning. The action was real good early and then slowed as the day went on. 6 were kings and the rest were lake trout. We fished out to 80 feet but a little shallower was best. Most fish came of the riggers from 30 to 45 down. Also the dipsey bite was real solid with slow board line action today.

I wish I had the same results. Heard a lot of positive chatter on the radio too. We launched at 930 and stayed out in 64 to 78 fow. Marked a ton of bait balls and fish. Four lines out, 2 riggers and 2 dipseys. Total of 2 hits, one laker on Monkey puke at 45ft on rigger, the other was on the dipsey and lost. Tried many colored spoons, no luck. Still enjoyed the day and there were a ton of boats out there. Great day on the water for the end of Sep.

Saturday we hit Two Harbors and went 2 for 4 with a Lake Trout and a small King. The first hit broke my line but I believe it was a weak spot. Second miss was a nice fish that ran a bunch and fought very hard but lost him before we could get the board in the boat.

Today we went out of McQuades and went 6 for 6 with 3 Kings @ nice redfin Lakers and 1 Steelhead. We went anywhere from 45 to 120 feet of water using boards and Dipsy's. Watermelon was the favorite pattern. The dipsy's were set on 3 with anywhere from 85' out to 150'. Randy was running 5 colors of leadcore and I was using 2 to 4oz of inline weights on the boards.

Loonasea and I got out for one last trip of the season. Went out of McQuades and headed up by the French river. We ended up 4 for 8 and only caught Lake Trout so they were all released. The biggest went right around 12-14 pounds. It seemed like most of the fish were in 40-60 feet of water. 2 of the misses came on 5 colors of leadcore and the other bites and fish came on dipsy's ran out to 80-90 set on 3. Watermelon and Wonderbread got all of the action. Nothing but shore fishing from now on until we get some ice.

      Walleye fishing really picked up this weekend.  Had to move around to find the fish but when I did locate them, they were schooled up in a tight cluster.  If I drifted more than 30 feet from the cluster the bite would stop.  Don't know if this is typical of fall fishing but it was sure fun.   Biggest eye I caught was the pictured 23", then the next biggest was only 17" (I think others are really targeting the 18-20" fish).  Pike suckers on a plain red hook were the best, but when I ran out of them, they still bit on chubs (although the fish were smaller).  Stopped at Fuel & Food Saturday afternoon and they were out of pike suckers and chubs, so I just used the last of my small chubs the last day.  Never did try the crawlers that I bought because the bite was good enough on minnows.   Enjoy the fall fishing and the beauty of the lake, and be courteous to other anglers.

      Made it to the brothers cabin this past weekend. We hit  4 lakes. Crappie fishing was great. Lots of 10-12 inch fish. Walleye on Big wolf and Andrusia was fair. Nothing over 16 inches though. Small pike were very active as well. The river was 2-3 feet deep and manageable. Found walleye in depths from 12-20 ft and crappies were 6-14 ft near pencil reeds. Crappies bit on crawlers, minnows and gulp. Got walleyes on fat heads as no one in area had anything other than pike chubs and we only got northerns on them. Wind was bad on Friday and terrible on Saturday. Definitely need to update electronics and trolling motor to get spot lock. My brother has it on his and had 0 problems holding in the wind. Overall fun weekend with 2 meals fish and a burger night at Becida bar.

      On the south end...  A fun week of walleye fishing as the water temps cool to the low 60's and fall colors have started.  The walleye are transitioning to fall locations.  Three different methods used to catch walleyes this week.  Drifting spinners, trolling crankbaits and anchored up and jigging with a minnow, which is becoming more effective each week.   Walleyes setting up across the south shore and with more shiners running, this trend will continue.  Jigging with a frozen shiner or live fathead has really started to be effective.  Give it 30-40 minutes and set up in a different spot if there is no action.   Congrats to all MN Tournament Trail tournament anglers this past week.  The winning team had a 7.52 lb avg per walleye for 10 fish.  There are a lot of big walleyes in Lake of the Woods right now. Daily limit is a combined limit of six walleyes and saugers (with up to 4 being walleyes).   Don't forget the slot, 19.5" - 28" must be returned with one allowed over 28" per day.   Fall is an excellent time to fish walleyes.  If you like the jig bite, anchor up and jig over the side of the boat for a very enjoyable and typically memorable day. Pike are active and most are caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  The feedbag is definitely on.   On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River.  Some good runs so far, good angler reports and nice walleyes being caught.  Fall on the river is nice as a small boat will work just fine. Most walleye anglers on the river are anchoring up along an edge or in a hole with a jig and minnow.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from Wheeler's Point through Baudette to Birchdale with lots of boat ramps.   Sturgeon activity has picked up as well with good fall reports. Up at the NW Angle...   Excellent fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 24 - 31 feet.  Gold, white and orange spinners with a crawler or a minnow continue to be effective.  As water cools, minnows on some days are outfising crawlers.   Areas with structure continue to hold fish.  18 - 27 feet are good starting points.  Jig and a minnow is the goto on structure and neck down areas. Pike and muskie anglers are locating fish on weedy points using double blade spinners and topwater.  A lot of fish are caught on figure eight. Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  Please note, no live, frozen or dead bait allowed into Canada from the U.S.  The various plastics on a jig are working well.  Contact a NW Angle resort for details. Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      After the first game I thought, may be we have a kicker at least? 🙄

      The wind was crazy when I was up for the week.  And talking about lake levels, I had to adjust my Humminbird down 1 foot to make the water level the same as the lake map depth.  Just an FYI.

      You can't make this up anymore.  37 yard kick for the win and he pushes it right?  Somewhere Blair Walsh is laughing at us about this.
