I don’t t...

    With the recent rain and cooler weather the water temperatures have dropped significantly and they are now in the upper 30 to lower 40 degree range. The cooler water temperatures have triggered the fall bite and the fishing this past week has been phenomenal. We have been catching lots of nice walleyes and crappies along with some very nice muski...

    The fall of 2019 will be remembered as the Musky Season of NO SUCKERS!  Last winter’s heavy snow wiped out the commercially raised suckers from Minnesota.  Record high water has made seining wild suckers near impossible.  Yet Muskies still to be caught! Musky:  Good-Very Good – Where and when available, suckers scor...

This is a good reminder to address those “I’ll do it later” outside projects now. The forecast says the area should see weather that is more seasonal later this week. “Rain and wind c...

    Winter was last weekend (temps lows of 28 degrees…snow…wind…).  Fall was the prior week.  Does that mean spring is this coming week?  Doubt it!!
