Fired Up Fall Fishing 11/2/2015
Great fall fishing this week. We had our first dusting of snow followed by nice weather. The forecast shows a warm week ahead which is great for getting on the water. Similar pattern to last week. Jig and a emerald shiner the go to presentation. Gold with chartreuse or orange and bubble gum the hot colors. Stinger hook helpful for light biters. Big numbers of fish north of the Lighthouse Gap in 19-25′. Anglers also finding walleyes in front of near NW Point, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, and near Twin Islands. Evening hours showing results in shallower water in gaps, Zippel Rock and Long Point area.
On the Rainy River, the strong run of walleyes has not yet happened. There are some fish being caught but not in big numbers. Mornings and evenings are best! Colder weather should help bite. Try 16-18 feet jigging or drifting during windier days. Orange, and gold mixed with bright color the ticket tipped with minnow. Sturgeon fishing good. Some walleye anglers hooking into sturgeon. Catch and release season for lake sturgeon in effect.
