Fall is here and the walleyes and other species sense this is the time to be on the hunt for food before the long cold water period. Walleye fishing has picked up on several of the area lakes and several anglers have reported good catches. Some of the lakes that have reported good fishing have been Splithand, Pokegama, Moose, the Mississippi River, Big Cutfoot and Round. A jig and Minnow has been the bait of choice and pay attention to the breaks in 12-18 feet around the deep edges of weedbeds and rock and gravel areas.
Crappie fishing has also been good and with the cooler weather upon us several area lakes are producing nice catches of crappies. Big Balsam, Splithand, Cutfoot, Bowstring, Big Jesse, and Little Turtle have all been places to try for a nice mess of fish. A small jig and minnow have been producing fish. Many times the fish are laying tight to the bottom and good electronics like the Humminbird Helix 12 can show you exact locations of hungry crappies. A slow presentation dragged on the bottom can produce the best results.
Grouse hunters are reporting seeing a few birds but when the leaves come down it will produce better opportunities. Duck hunting was spotty with some local ducks producing some shooting. Colder weather will bring ducks down from the north and produce better hunting. It’s a great time to be alive and Fall is a short period of time. So get out and enjoy what nature has to offer.
Fall is the perfect time to head north to Grand Rapids, Minnesota to enjoy the fall colors, fish, enjoy cozy lodging and one of the many Grand Rapids Lodging Properties, and Eat & Drink at our new craft breweries and Minnesota wine bar.
