Reports from all area lakes that there is at least 6" of good ice! I would still use extreme caution. Emily is off to a slow start. Some walleyes being caught on Reno. No other fish reports as I have been checking ice thickness from fishermen.
Small area lakes such as Freeborn report 3" of ice and have fishing activity. Waska froze Sun. nite. No reports on Emily.
Get ready for ice fishing. I think with the cold forecast we will see some ice fishing by the first part of next week! We are ready with all the new fishing gear, so come on in, look around and get your licenses to be ready.
Open water fishing is basically over. Time to think ice fishing. We are getting ready in the store with ice tackle arriving almost daily.
Only diehard walleye fishermen are left. Walleyes still being caught wirh jigs and minnows on points.Next week is going to be cold, so am thinking open water fishing will be over.
Same as last two weeks. Bad weather and great walleye fishing. Fewer fisherman as open water season winds down and boats being put away. Getting ready for ice season.
Much the same as last week. Weather is poor but walleye fishing is great! Same hot lakes and same methods are being used.
Another week of bad weather, but walleyes are in prime fall feeding frenzy! Jigs and minnows are the best method on Waska. Get in 12-14 feet of water around hard bottom areas. Also good reports from Reno, Mary,Andrew, and Miltona. Not enough people fishing other species to get a report. Briefly, pheasant opener was poor. Ducks and geese still continue to be good for the hunters.
Finally! Walleyes are hitting on Waska. Use jigs and minnows in 12-14 feet of water around the hard bottom points. Also, it sounds like walleyes are being caught on Reno in shallow water at dark using cranks. Still seeing lots of ducks and geese on area potholes. Pheasant opener will not be good on Saturday.
Should call this weather report for 10/4/13. Weather has been awful for fishing this past week. Duck hunters continue to have success with local ducks making up most of bag limits. Water temps have cooled down, so our fall walleye fishing should start if weather cooperates.
