Many hawg walleyes reaching over 28″ boated. South shore from the gap to Morris Point to Rocky Point strong. Walleye and saugers good numbers in 15-20 feet of water. Bring lots of bait as anglers are going through multiple packages of frozen shiners. Ice fishing on its way as bays are just about iced over. Cold snap in forecast start of next week.
Shiner run continues in river and walleyes are staying right along with them. Terrific river fishing. Walleyes are in 10-25 feet of water. Jig and a shiner is best tactic with bright colors or glow.

Fishing remains excellent for those who can get out as there is scattered ice in bay and marinas. Most resorts preparing for ice fishing. Ice forming in back bays and harbors.
