Now maybe the lake will come up some so my boat will come off the lift, and the grass won't be crunchy...

How much did you get?

According to weather underground local weather station abotu .5 inches.   Looking in the bucket sitting outside that seems about right.

We got .5” at the east end of Frazer, but the main action was more in Del’s area, north of us. I was fishing and my cell phone radar wasn’t showing anything so I had a harrowing ride home. No eating fish. Glad for the rain. In 15 years, I’ve never seen it this low.

Nice to see but too little too late and there is nothing of significance in the 10 day forecast.  Time to lower my boat lift.

Good news that it rained. It's as dry as I've seen in a long time. Since I'm a glass-is-half-full kind of person, I found some positives with the dryness:

 

1. I was able to walk along the shoreline a long ways, walking and jumping from rock to rock since they are all exposed.

2. Only two mosquitoes have managed to draw blood from me in my last two trips. For this time of year, they are virtually non-existent.

3. I was able to ride my ATV on the trails in our peninsula, accessing areas that are normally too wet. THAT was fantastic.

4. After pulling 100+ ticks off of me at opener when I went into the woods, I only had two this past weekend. 

 

On the negative side, I didn't use my sauna at all due to the dryness. I decided that it's time to install some fine mesh screen as a spark arrestor on the sauna stove.

Neighbor had almost an inch in his rain gauge. The mosquitoes have been terrible at our place all summer. I might even clear some rocks away from my shoreline, so we can access the water without twisting an ankle. I guess one positive is with my stupid cantilever boatlift, water level hasn't been a problem....so far anyway.

Last month I had over 4 dozen ticks on me after checking my 4 trail cameras in the woods by Soudan.  Last weekend I didn't have a single one after spending even more time in those woods.

I’ve noticed the same thing while night fishing recently.  The mosquito numbers are unbelievable.  My theory is that the collapse of the bat population due to ‘white nose syndrome’ has allow the mosquito population to proliferate. I can’t remember the last time I saw a bat while night fishing, whereas in years past there would be many of them flying around us - each happily consuming 1,000 mosquitoes per hour.

Put up some bat houses around your properties. They won't all survive living in the Soudan Mine

Sadly, bat houses don't work for winter so back to the mine...

Wow.   We got maybe .05 here in Wakemup Village.    Fortunately your rain helps the water level here too.

 

Thanks for taking one for the team...

      We're having daily heat adversey,  20+ days of 90 deg. Hang in there. NOAA and Federal forecast just announced the Midwest has a 95% chance of a January through March La Nina which means a cold winter and above average snow fall. Early ice may be a challange with forecasted colder and wetter October through December.

      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.
