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!

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
