Isaac was able to catch his PB yesterday.  20 3/4" 5lb 2oz.

I am not a bass guy, but thought I would stop by to share this picture of my personal best largemouth.   She hit a shiner on a tip-up yesterday on a Mississippi River backwater north of Winona. (No cl

I tried something I haven't done in years yesterday.  I went fishing at night.  I started at 8pm and marked some spots to try while dodging waves from recreational riff raff in every direction.  By 9p

so I think I just discovered @Rick G secret to landing all these nice fish. The key is to have your lure color match your sunglasses? lol Nice fish as always

I appreciate it @Wanderer.... I had a bass boat for years and about four years ago I had big motor issues. While it was getting worked on I bought a cheap fishing kayak so I could get on the water.  The rest is history, I ended up selling the boat and kayak fish now. The being so close to the water, the getting to places others can’t and just the peacefulness that kayak fishing provides changed me. I upgraded and love every minute of it....

If I didn't have a boat, I'd for sure have a souped up fishing kayak.  I really have no reason to have both and as long as I have a boat, I probably won't have a kayak in addition.  I have a 12 foot jon boat that I use for duck hunting in the fall and my Father and I use it on a small river in the summer where a bigger boat can't get.

Well sometimes, sometimes he just steals it!

 

Heck I have been trying to get him trained in everything.  He loads and unloads the boat now, controls the boat some. (Hard to give that control up) and he has started to back the trailer up at the ramp.

Haha!  Cool deal.  I suppose you’ll get used to being outfished by just a little at least.  Passing the torch sort of thing.

 

A young determined and capable kid won’t leave too many bass behind for the back of the boat.  I bet it’s fun teaching and watching him come into his own.

It has been fun to see him get large fish this year.  Surprisingly, his biggest fish have come fishing behind me!  

When he is in front I have resorted to old fashioned tactics to keep numbers close.

Hopefully he becomes a more versatile fisherman than his old man.

It was a beauty...20” long and would guess 4 1/2+lbs. It was released right after the picture. My wife caught that one In late May in 10 feet of water.

      I heard western MN was pretty good but it appears that the central area was poor.  I knew there would be more hunters.  Expect more of that when other seasons open.

      We returned home today from a short 3 day fishing trip on Vermilion. The weather was chilly most of the time and windy during our entire trip. All of the fishing took place on the east end of the lake and we fished from Daisy Bay to Armstrong Bay with many stops in between. The fishing party included myself, my cousin, and a very dear friend. We bought pike suckers and nitecrawlers for bait. We used jig/minnow, bottom bouncer/colored hook and beads, and lindy rigs. We fished water from 15' to 30' and targeted rock reefs and holes. The water temperature varied between 57 and 59 degrees depending on the time of day. During our stay, we caught one fish on a minnow and 80+ on a half crawler. In addition, we caught several jumbos that were incidental to fishing for the walleyes. We found that a bottom bouncer, 4'-5' leader, 2-fluorescent light green beads, and red hook worked best. We found fish at most of the places we stopped at and 20'-26' was the optimum depth. The fish bit lightly and most of the time a hit was indicated by a bump followed by a slight drag on the line. We missed lots of fish by setting the hook fairly quickly after the initial bump in an attempt to avoid gut hooked fish. We found the fish scattered with the larger concentrations on mud bottom. Probably 1/2 of our fish were the 10''-13" up and comers while the rest included lots of 14"-17" eaters and several slot fish from 20"-22" and one 28". We had two fish fries and enjoyed every minute. We reserved the same time slot for next year. I think we hit the fall colors at it's peak and it was spectacular to say the least.   Good Fishing😀      MarkB   This was the largest walleye that we caught during our stay........

      For me it’s been slow. Last Wednesday got 2 small northern and a nice bass for 5 hours fishing. Was using shiners mainly. Very little boat traffic and access has been mostly empty as well when I drive by.

      This is the quietest forum on the planet.  I'm going back to Clearwater for one last trip.  How has the fall fishing been?

      Hit up the lake Friday afternoon running around we did not get anything but one 22" eye pulling a lindy with a worm.  We then pulled out of the lake and Saturday went to Winnie.  Stayed dry up there but the fishing success eluded our boats.

      On the south end...  The traditional fall jig bite for walleyes is in full swing.  There are various schools located across the south shore.  Anglers catching good numbers of walleyes just outside the Lighthouse Gap where the Rainy River enters Lake of the Woods, in front of Zippel Bay and around Long Point.  Depths of 22-28', anchored up and jigging with a fathead or frozen shiners has been successful.  Anglers going through a lot of fish, sorting through lots of smalls to ultimately get nice eaters.  A lot of action.  Some anglers still drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler with success.  Some good walleye reports also from Four Mile Bay in 10-15'. On the Rainy River...   Intermittent runs of emerald shiners have entered the river as have some walleyes.  Mixed reports by anglers, as the big run hasn't happened yet.  Typically activity increases as water cools.  Current on the river is low.  Most anglers are jigging with frozen shiners, although trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses are still effective.  Sturgeon anglers focusing on deeper holes with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers and shiners.  Pike showing hanging on weed edges. Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are boat shuttle / passenger services available to the Angle.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.   The foliage is beautiful and the walleye fishing is good.  Jigging with a minnow on structure in 10 - 15' and 21 - 27' effective.  Gold, orange and glow colors great choices.  Water temps in the low 60's.  A nice mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, pike and smallmouth.  Muskie anglers reporting nice fish as well.

      I forgot to add all our fish were on a lindy rig with a medium sized rainbow

      Thanks for the posts all. I've been monitoring this forum for a bit and it had gotten quiet so made me worried the fall bite was off to a slow start.   Glad to hear jig and minnow bite is going as that's by far the most fun way to get em!
