Was out and boated a 9.2 and four other keepers trolling north of lockport. The water was at 46.4 and the walleye were starting to show signs of early morning and late evening bite. Cranks in the silver/white with black or green backs, blues with white sides (too bad rapala went to the chrome silver and orange!). The jig wasn't as good as I'd thought it would be but maybe I wasn't as persistent as I should have been. Hey anybody want-a-go-a-fishing? It was snowing today with a high of 40 some.......

Just for your information.... the Red is at 38 f and the bite has shifted to the jig and minnow for the largest part --- I cranked for 4 hours and could scratch up only one smaller walleye. I did see a few good ones caught on the jig on Saturday but was unable to convert on any big fish myself.

The jig was my most effective tool but the wind and 33-34F temps made fishing on Saturday a bit uncomfortable. The bite was best earlier am and later p.m. in traditional jigging spots. Larger salted shiners seemed to be best we also put two smaller shiners on our jigs when we can located the bigger ones).
I also heard the fishing was tough Wed and Thurs as the lockmaster at Lockport had opened the gates up fully (perhaps anticipating a bit of run-off from the snowfall experienced by you folks south of the border). Generally it takes a couple/three days for things to settle and the fishing to pick up again. Draw-down this year was very gradual (as we really lacked any significant precip in the valley) and fishing had remained very good up until this past week's opening of the gates. It still might be good this week if the weather is to moderate as predicted.

A couple more weeks to go and it's pretty much over --- until the ice goes on in earlier December eh!

Keep those hooks sharp!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
