I was out today on Deer Lake, north of Deer River doing some bass fishing. I ended up catching about 15-20 largemouth. The biggest were around 13". I also had a 20-25lb muskie chew on my tube bait, it come from under the boat and hit. I also got to watch 2 muskies in the act of spawning. I caught the bass in extremely shallow water. Some were guarding nests, but I didn't see any big bass (3lber or bigger).
Do the smallies spawn when the largies are spawning? I tried a couple rock piles for smallies with no luck. Tube baits and berkley power worms were the ticket.

My brother and I had a repeat of my first performance on Deer today. 23 largemouth, most of them in the 13-14" range with a few smaller one's mixed in. The hot bait was a Berkley Power minnow two tone gray on a 2/0 hook, fished jerkbait style. The fish were still up very shallow 1-3 feet. We didn't see any big bass and no smallies seen or caught. Do the largies and smallies spawn about the same time?

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!
