Targeting walleye prior to the season is not legal.  There is not a catch and release season before opener.   Most seasons are put in place so that people do not harass the fish while they are spawning.   Honestly, I could care less but I thought I'd give you a heads up so that you don't get ticketed.

Does anyone know if the landing near cable bay on the east end is open yet? I see it's not listed on the DNR site yet. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I do not think that it is open yet.

Check with the DNR in Tower. They should know for sure.

I have heard reports of a good leech bite in some areas.

I am still using mainly pike suckers and fathead chubs with an occasional fish on 1/2 crawler.

We were up over memorial holiday on the west end. Water temps were 56-58 in Norwegian bay area. Otter ate all our minnows first night there so we switched to leeches and did very well. Only disappointment was my crappies were still hard to find in deep water.

I ran from the West to East and found 64 to 67 degree water depending on where you were located.  When the sun was out, water temps shot up to 69 to 70 range.  Folks are swimming!

Hey All -

 

Half days at work before a long vacation are the slowest, right?  Anyway, the wife is having trouble finding out the water temp to see if we are going to the beach much over the next week.  I know this usually isn't monitored as much any more this time of year, but is someone able to help a guy out? :)  Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!

I had 64 on the west end last weekend.  I'd imagine it is pretty close to that based on the weather we have had this week.  It's gonna make for a cold bath in the lake this weekend.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.

      Second flock this morning. They seem to find safe feeding grounds when the guns start popping.

      Chance of lightning....  haha.  When will it stop?!  In about an hour.  Let’s load up.

      Thanks guys! I have a reply from the recommended guide saying he is too busy in fall (apparently he is a teacher and coach etc...)   I think I will stay couple of days in Monticello and fish the Mississippi River. Any recommendations on spots and accommodations? Also do I need to hire a car?
    • Wanderer
      Just settling in for a 4 hour nap before launching the boat on LOW - provided we’re not in the middle of a T-storm.  South winds so that helps.  Rain doesn’t bother me but the chance of lightning does.   Good luck tomorrow.
