Fear Not Fall Fronts Jedi Angler

Well I'm no Yoda...more wookie-like actually but I do know that April through August cold fronts can mean lethargic fish but after the new moon in August, something magical happens. Autumn cold fronts seem to give fish a little wake up call...a shot in the arm so to speak. Cooling water combined with shorter photo period (hours of daylight) triggers activity in Geese, Deer and yes predator fish.

Cheers and hook-sets!

Great fishing yet to come-Leech Lake

With great angling going into mid November the past few seasons, we are just past the half way point now with a lot of great open water fishing yet to come on Leech Lake. This season has already been one for the books as far as Walleyes go, for limits and big fish. The consistent bite has made experimenting with various lures and techniques a real blast. Walleye beat-downs have come on everything from leeches to Chubby Darters to large 6" minnowbaits and swimbaits. Slab panfish are here for the taking if you can find them and the Muskies are moving now too.

Here are some pics from the past two weeks...

Consider booking a fall Muskellunge hunt now.

Cheers and hook-sets!
