Minnesota Fishing Guide Service’s Report, 10.11.17

walleye fall big alexHello everyone, Fall fishing is here!  Between the awesome grouse hunting and fishing throughout the area, I’m not sure what to do.  I do know that when I’m catching crappies bigger than a bucket I’m in 30 ft of water fishing an 1/8 oz jig tipped with a Berkley Gulp white 2” grub.  And occasionally, a bonus walleye or nice pike.  The bigger pike are lurking nearby chowing on the crappies so fish the edges of the crappie schools with a large chub on a large bait rig.  The easy walleyes to catch are in or near the deepest holes in the lake.  Concentrate on the 45-60 ft range using minnows on just about any type of live bait presentation.  Lotsa Fish! Lotsa Fun!
