Here are some pics of a few fish we caught this morning.

Nice smallies - 19"-21"
These fish were all caught with Ring-N Grubs and jigs.
More info can be seen on the Ring-N Grubs at Catch-N Tackle
Nice Walleyes

It's a very good bite. Some trophies are definitely coming in.

Get up to Clementson Resort for some awesome fall fishing.

Sandee says she has an opening the end of October and a few in November as well.

The bite just keeps getting better all the way to freeze-up now. Look for plenty of 4-6 lb smallies and walleyes over 10 lbs to come roaming in from lake of the woods.

The smallie bite was great!It was fast and the fish were BIG!Paul and I had doubles....both fish were 19" and for the most time that we were chasing the bronze backs you didn't have to make more than a few casts to get hit.They were really gobbling up those Ring-n-Grubs.
This was my first time up to the Rainy.(can't believe I haven't made it before).
I'll be up for some more of that action again.
I want to thank Rick and Sandee of Clementsons.
They are great hosts and are really freindly.It a nice place to stay and close to to some awsome fishing.
Thanks. smile.gif

Can't help but think that the fishing is only going to get better over the next couple of weeks. Think I'll have to sneak back up there again for a couple of days.

Would like to send out a big thank you to Rick and Sandee for putting up with the three of us. You guys are the best. For anyone that would like to squeeze in one more trip this year, give them a call. They know exactly what is going on with the river and will do everything they can to put you on fish.

Thanks Rick, Paul and Dennis for coming up to the Rainy River. We enjoyed having you here and glad you were able to catch some nice fish too. Thanks Dennis for the "ride" on the river, an experience in your "River-Pro" boat I'll never forget! wink.gif

I think your right about the fishing only getting better. Water temperature is a factor, which is now at 47.5 degrees. Prime fishing can start at 51 degrees down to freezing. We'll keep ya updated!!

      Walked out about half a mile on Tuesday with max safety (life jacket, ice picks, long rope to house, and chisel).  Ice was very solid and I measured 7½" today (Thursday).  The first 1/8 mile was nice dark ice that was large chunks frozen together, but quite smooth.  Then there was about 40 feet of very jagged white ice.  Had to lift the portable over the points of ice otherwise it would hang up on them.  Then the next mile of ice was rough white ice as shown in the picture with the ice scoop.  At the small island before Birch Island the ice appears to be dark (and probably smoother).  Several snowmobiles and ATVs were running out as far as Birch Island but it was easy walking for me.   Fishing got better each day.  Rainbow and chubs were about equal.  Couldn't catch a fish on pike suckers.  Best fish was the 27" (8#-3oz) hog shown in the picture.  Had a hard time getting her head into the hole.  Picture quality is bad because I wanted to release her quickly to avoid further stress.  Good luck out there and be careful on the ice.

      Measured 6" good clear ice today about 50 yards off the north side of Moccasin point. Walked out for a little ice fishing. Remember ice conditions vary around the lake, depending on sun exposure and current in channels/narrows. Be cautious, safe and verify your local ice conditions.  Directly off the Moccasin point boat landing, in the channel ice conditions looked poor. Picture is from Northside of Moccasin point I the early morning  when ice looks the best

      Finished the 23 waterfowl season over Thanksgiving. Got to hunt two days of the long weekend. Saw a modest number of ducks, and harvested mallards, bluebills, and ringnecks as the water began freezing over during the weekend. One of our tougher seasons with different migration patterns probably due to unusual weather patterns with constant fluctuating between well above average temps for a period and then almost instantly well below temps before going well above again, and so forth. Still will cherish the memories with family and friends and relive the sights and sounds of out on the water during fall. Will be posting ice fishing reports in the fishing report clubs as soon as the ice is safe. Happy Holidays everyone.

      Thanks for sharing this exciting career opportunity with Orvis in the Minneapolis area. It's great to see companies looking for passionate individuals to join their team, especially in the world of fly fishing.

      Shocking, I know.  And what may be more surprising is that one need not head westward to find them either.  There is a thriving, reproducing population of them right here in Central MN.

      Cosmo and I took the afternoon off and went pheasant hunting in the fresh snow yesterday.  Tried some new spots that I have never hunted before.  Raised 28 total.  I got a double at the second spot.  Two roosters flushed simultaneously and I dropped both of them.  The first one one fell dead but the second one went down as a cripple.  After retrieving the dead one, I went over to where the second one went down and after some good dog work, Cosmo came out of a patch of grass with it.  Then the final spot produced another rooster for a December limit.  Hunting after a fresh snow is quite often my most productive and enjoyable hunt of the entire season.
