As we're deep into fall, alot of us are slowly putting our open water gear away and winterizing the boats. The water temperatures are in the upper 40s. The walleye bite continues to good. I have been sticking with jigs and minnows, in the 24- 30 ft range, jumbo perch are being in the mix. fish have been active and of nice size. I know nice Musky and Pike have been caught up in the 10 to 15ft depths, look along the shore lines and pencil reeds.
A few helpful reminders to make next season kick off smoothly. Strip all your reels of line so when next season approaches you'll put new line on. Clean and oil all the reels. Inspect all rods for fractures or any compromises. Make sure all eyes are non abrasive. Follow winterizing instructions for your outboard, make sure fuel tank is full and fuel conditioner has been run through. Pressure clean the outside of the hull. Fully charge all onboard batteries.
Have a good rest of your fall.
While out there please where your PFD.
