Dog Days?

The Muskie bite is finally going and multiple fish days are not uncommon. This 51"er hit on a boat-side figure 8 maneuver during one of my scouting missions. 

These anglers booked a trip through Leisure Outdoor Adventures and got to see first hand the power of the mighty Muskellunge when this monster 52"er struck right at dusk. Leisure Outdoor Adventures is a first class outfitters, offering guided fishing trips on premier Minnesota lakes. 

I will admit that Walleye fishing in August is less consistent than early summer, but enough keepers and bigger slot fish are coming in most days to keep it interesting. This is my favorite time to cast artificial lures and troll crankbaits for these tasty favorites. 

The shallow Rippin' Rap bite was going good on this particular day. 

Bigger Sunfish are a real treat when we can find them.

                                                         Cheers and hook-sets!
