As summer weather tried to hold on, it finally let go and the more seasonal temperature has arrived. Our fall walleye pattern is starting to set up my best bite was in 25 to 28 ft, jig and minnows did the best on the deeper fish, though from experience these fish will bite on slip sinker rigs again with a minnow. We have got some fish shallower on the mud/sand flats 12 to 15 ft rigging with minnows. Jigging raps have put fish in the boat also.
Well this will be my last report for the 2017 open water season. It was a great year, alot of fish were caught with a noticeable increase in size. The fish clients kept were nice eating size fish. Now is really a great time to be on Lake Vermilion, the fall colors are starting to paint the landscape, our fall walleye and musky fishing is only going to keep getting better. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. I will be out on the water off and on but most of my days coming up will be in the duck blind or following a yellow lab through the grouse woods.
Till next season take care, have a safe winter, and see you on the water in 2018.
