Those who still have their boats out are doing quite well for walleyes, panfish, pike, and bass.
The fall bite has finally started. Yes, the fish are going strong. Here’s where they’re biting – and what to use to get ’em.
Slowly, anglers are starting to see some fall walleye patterns develop even though water temperatures remain warmer than they should be this time of year.
Still some solid open-water fishing opportunities left this season, and patterns are shaping up nicely for the coming weeks.

Moving baits continue to put fish in the boat.
Temps of 80 degrees?! Yes, the walleye bite has been tough – you really have to work for the fish as water temps just haven’t cooled off enough yet. But there are still plenty of reasons to be out of the water.
Muskie activity seems to have improved since last week and there were definitely more reports of shallow fish and bigger fish being caught with large sucker minnows.
Finding fish shallower than last week … Moving baits are dominating.
