The weather can be a bit of a crap shoot this time of year. I don't get to book too many guide trips after late October, but I try to pick good weather windows and make every effort to get out. Each mild day we get from here on out is truly a gift and it is THE best time of year to catch quality fish.
My best Muskie of the year (so far) showed up on a 55 degree November afternoon and I'm pretty sure I had Leech lake to myself. This 53"er had a healthy 25-1/2" girth, a solid 40# fish.
While grinding out a slow Walleye bite a few weeks ago, this 30-1/4 incher made my day.
This 21" Leech Lake Bass ate a big swimbait and had many other quality fish with her.
