2018 season is in the books..all except for the final blasts of color on the trees.
The final weekend of fishing for our guests was pretty decent, with several cabins catching limits and more slot fish released. Eric and a buddy headed out on Sunday, and while the temperatures were low, they managed to catch several walleyes, a couple limits of eaters. Everything came on minnows for them. Crank baits produced nice walleyes for some, and a 49″ muskie for Jeff Weyandt. Usually a walleye guy, won’t be surprised if some musky gear makes its way onto his Christmas list. He may be hooked!
Jon Posthumus and Rich Kelleher each caught & released a 25″ walleye. Jumbo perch continued to add to the keepers for some.
We are in the midst of winding things down for the season, and a pretty solid dusting of snow on Friday morning reminded us why we opt to spend the first couple weeks of October pulling docks, storing boats and so on. While we normally expect a handful of really nice days, that hasn’t materialized this year. Another all day soaker today. Our last time out the Lake Vermilion water temp was barely over 50 degrees.
If you are starting to toss around dates for your 2019 trip, now is the time to lock in your spot before the hustle and bustle of the holidays takes over.
Stop wishing…come fishing!
