Walleye are finally starting to pick up. The water is getting cooler and the fall pattern is starting to unfold. There are a couple strategies you can use to catch your fall Walleye. As far as bait is concerned, definitely use Large Walleye Suckers or bigger. Some fishermen are reporting some action in the deeper holes, but many are reporting seeing beautiful Walleyes (over 25 inches) in the river channels along rocky shorelines fishing from shore.


Fall Muskies are beginning to pick up a bit. Many folks are catching and/or seeing fish on Suckers. A lot of the fish being reported on the Flowage all seem to be 45 inches plus. Lost Land and Teal Lakes are not producing monster fish, but have really been producing quantity this Fall. Several groups of fishermen have reported boating 5 or more a day on Suckers.



This weekend is going to be a beautiful fall weekend. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s and as we get into Monday and Tuesday temperatures will be going up into the low to mid 60s with no forecasts of rain.

Well we are starting to get into the very tail end of the season here. I want to thank everyone who made this season just as memorable as my first year. I am sure I will not be seeing many of you until next April or May, but I wanted to take this time to show my gratitude and appreciation for all the support you have shown me thus far. I look forward to many years of serving you and your families and helping to make each trip you take up here a memorable one. If I do not see you before the end of the season I want to wish you all a very safe and memorable Holiday Season and I cannot wait to see you all again next year. Thank you so much and may God bless you all.

CJ Grouse 2014

Eleven year old CJ from Illinois got a license and some good advice about hunting ruffed grouse from Jenk's Bait & Tackle. On Saturday 10/4/2014, CJ got his first ever ruffed grouse while hunting on public land in Sawyer County Wisconsin. Thanks Jenks Bait & Tackle!!!!
