The fall fishing has been heating up lately, even as the temperatures drop. Griz is boating many nice walleyes for people on the St. Croix river. The fish have started to group up in certain areas where he and his clients are catching them on a jig and minnow. Griz suggests using a fireball jig with a fathead minnow and drifting with the current, as it’s faster now with the recent rain.
Nice northern pikes are biting on crankbaits on the area lakes. I guided many anglers last week (including a few teenagers) onto a number of nice tiger muskies and northern pike. I’m using both sucker minnows and an array of crankbaits in deeper water. I’m also using a few custom colored bulldawgs for some of the metro lakes. They are effective when jigged over the deeper weed edges. I’ll be heading up to Mille Lacs next week. If you want to book a trip you can give me a call, or book online at www.mightymusky.com.
For all you musky guys and gals, we just got a pile of big sucker minnows at the shop, along with a bunch of sucker harnesses for rigging them. As many of you already know, there is a major shortage of sucker minnows this year and we’re doing our best to find them.
